Siblings meet 67 years later
After decades of searching, Anthony Leonard finally met his biological family.
An adoptee, Anthony Leonard had been searching for his long-lost siblings for years. After nearly seven decades, Leonard recently met his sister, Heather Nelson, and brother, Kim, at the Portland airport.
MSN Living: An adoption journey – with a shocking twist
“I’ve needed a big brother my whole life,” Nelson told KATU. She previously believed she was the oldest in the family.
Their mother was a young nurse during World War II. She fell in love with a soldier who was deployed to Belgium. After he was gone for over a year, she thought the worst. Eventually, she met someone else. As Nelson explained:
“She’s 25. She’s pregnant with Anthony but she never told us and we never knew by looking at the pictures that that was the case.”
MSN Living: The truth & lies about adoption
When their mother discovered her soldier was alive, she gave Anthony up for adoption and moved to the United States to marry the love of her life. Nelson only recently discovered the secret when Leonard contacted her from England.
Unfortunately, the siblings’ mother passed away 12 years ago.
“I think she engineered it from heaven myself,” Nelson said. “That’s what I think.”

After six decades my wife's brothers and sisters, with two sisters yet to find, have been reunited. Unfortunately my wife went to be with our Lord before this took place but you can bet she is watching over everyone with a big smile on her beautiful face. So, why don't all you complainers just put it in park and be happy for those who have found each other, regardless of the past.
I thought this story was about the siblings meeting for the first time and their joy in finding one another! It appears from the postings I've read its about judging the mother and other women both known and unknown!
I will leave the judging to the other posting folks who MUST BE very qualified to judge others and just say GREAT TO THE SIBLINGS!
