Twin Sisters Reunite In Fullerton After 78 Years Apart

FULLERTON (AP) — It’s been 78 years since Ann Hunt and Elizabeth Hamel were last together — in their mother’s womb.

The Orange County Register reported Sunday that the twin sisters reunited Thursday for the first time since birth in Fullerton, thanks to a nudge from from their children and help from a psychology professor.

Hunt, who lives in England, was given up for adoption and only learned she had a twin when she began looking for her birth mother after her adopted mother died.

Hamel, who lives in Oregon, always knew she had a twin but says she never thought she would see her again.

Hamel’s son reached out to California State University professor Nancy Segal, who researches twins and helped coordinate the reunion.
