Time for your daily cry. *pulls the tissue box closer*

Ten-year-olds Audrey and Gracie were born in China and adopted by different American families.

Audrey grew up in Wisconsin, while Gracie grew up across the country in Washington. They both had heart defects and have undergone surgery, they both wear dark-rimmed glasses and the same style of clothes. Neither had any idea that the other existed.

Audrey's mom, Jennifer, did some poking around to find out more about her daughter's family in China and uncovered a photograph of Audrey sitting on the lap of her foster mother. Beside Audrey was a baby who looked exactly the same. That's when Jennifer got to work trying to find this other baby—her child's identical twin.

Thanks to a detective in China, she found her. Their emotional reunion was captured on Good Morning America.
