Hillary Harris knew little about her biological family, but she had her parents’ names, as well as the name of a long-lost sister. Armed with that information, she spent several unsuccessful years searching for her sibling. Then, her neighbor received a package, and the amateur sleuth realized something shocking about the person living next door.
Wisconsinite Hillary Harris, 31, was adopted as a baby and didn’t know about her biological parents. That is, until she gave birth to a daughter of her own in 2011. Then, she started doing research into her own background.
From the agency in charge of her adoption, Harris learned the names of her biological parents. She was then able to find her mother, but the 32-year-old told the New York Post that the meeting didn’t go as expected.
