Talk about the best Christmas present ever. Imagine finding out that the friend you have referred to as “best friend” was actually, family. It happened to two men in Hawaii just before Christmas.
Alan Robinson and Walter MacFarlane had been friend for the past 60 years. They met in 6th grade and they were fast friends. Alan knew he had been adopted and Walter said that he never knew his father. Not odd, but Alan had the desire to find out who his family was, as he was the sole survivor. He knew he had a brother who died, when he was very young, but knew nothing of the rest of his family.
As Alan was searching for any family members that he may be related to, Walter was doing a search for his father. Both friends thought it would be cool to try Ancestry.com, unbeknownst to each other, Walter’s daughter saw the results and informed the two men, that they shared the same birth mother.
With this news, Alan said it was “the best Christmas present I could ever imagine”
The two men, plan on spending the rest of their retirement having fun together and traveling the world.
Talk about true Christmas miracle.
