The twins were born in South Korea in 1985 and have been adopted by various Jewish-American families. Sinert grew up in Florida and Bushnell grew up in Philadelphia.
Bushnell is a single mother. Her daughter, Isabel, asked her to undergo a DNA test to learn more about her biological family.

Bushnell was worried about taking the exam, so instead let her 11-year-old take the exam.
Coincidentally, Sinert used a retail genetic test kit to look at her health history. ABC6 report..
When Sinert scrutinized her results, she was confused by the envisioned match for her daughter.
“You share 49.96% of DNA with this person. We predict she will be your daughter.” Sinert remembered. “This is clearly incorrect. I have never given birth, so I have no children.”
After contacting Isabel about the results, Sinert finally contacted her long-lost twins.The sisters shared text messages and photos and learned that they lived almost the same life as them. “Twin moments.”
“Wedding photos of our seniors … we both wore strapless style beaded dresses, and our hair was exactly the same.” Bushnell said.

Both women were immediately emotional after they finally met.
“Is this true?” One sister asked.
“It’s real, it’s real” Others said.
They agreed that they were like looking in the mirror because they shared similar gestures and reactions.
“This is the happiest moment in my life.” Bushnell said. “To be honest, I’ve lost the last 36 years of my life with my twins, but at the same time, I’m very grateful and excited about the future.”
The sisters shared a sweet moment full of birthday cakes and gift exchanges. Bushnell’s daughter and Sinert’s husband attended the celebration.
“Soon a hole was filled in my heart.” Bushnell said. “I love and love me and I have an absolutely wonderful family, but I’ve always had a sense of discontinuity. Knowing that I have the same twin sisters made everything so clear. Everything makes sense. “
