Sisters apart for 40 years reunited by working in the same US hospital!


Reunited Sisters

After tragedy, abandonment and living in orphanages, DNA tests confirmed the two womens many coincidences were anything but

Together From Orphaned

Two orphaned sisters separated decades ago in South Korea have been reunited after being hired at the same hospital in Florida.

The women, now both in their 40s, were stunned to learn that they were related, having not seen each other since the early 1970s.

Both women had suffered tragic losses and spent time at orphanages in South Korea before being adopted by American families.

As a very young child, Eun-Sook now known as Meagan Hughes had been taken from her alcoholic father by her mother. But the woman left Hughes half sister, Pok-nam Shin, known as Holly Hoyle OBrien, who was two years older, in the care of the father.

When the father died, OBrien, then aged five, ended up in an orphanage in Pusan, 200 miles (335km) south of the capital, Seoul. In 1978, aged nine, she was adopted by an American couple who gave her the new name and took her to be part of their family in the state of Virginia.
