These Two Adopted Women Become Best Friends, Later Discover They’re Long Lost Sisters

It seemed like something out of a movie when two colleagues learned they were long-lost sisters. When they first met, they had an instant bond and quickly became best friends. However, they wouldn’t find out they were sisters for another eight years.

Cassandra Madison and Julia Tinetti met in 2013 while working at the Russian Lady Bar in New Haven, Connecticut. They were both born and adopted in the Dominican Republic, and they both had tattoos of the country’s flag. The colleagues ended up hanging out outside of work on a regular basis after connecting about their shared interests. They’d leave for dinner and drinks, and they’d even try wearing similar clothes!

Thanks to a TikTok trend, Cassandra Madison recently decided to tell her story to the world for the challenge: Tell me about your most bizarre one-in-a-million story. Anything that happened to you that you can’t believe happened in real life.

Madison had a one-of-a-kind story, and in response to a TikTok user’s prompt, she posted a video describing her relationship with her long-lost sister, whom she met while working at a pub.

An instant communication

They just clicked, and their connection seemed to be quite genuine. Their colleagues teased them about wanting to act like sisters.

When Tinetti and Madison compared adoption documents, they were disappointed to discover they didn’t fit. According to the journals, they were from two different cities and had slightly different last names, according to Tinetti. The names of their mothers on the paperwork were also different.

Despite the fact that their papers said they were unrelated, they all felt a strong connection to one another.

Madison told Good Morning America that she and Tinetti had both felt like long-lost sisters. However, she had her reservations due to inconsistencies in the adoption documents.

When Madison relocated to Virginia Beach in 2015, the two stayed in touch and communicated frequently via social media. Madison couldn’t shake the feeling that she and Tinetti were connected, and she wanted to learn more about her roots. Her adoptive mother sent her a 23andMe DNA genetic testing kit for Christmas in 2018, and she got her wish. She was able to locate some distant relatives thanks to the findings.

Help of a Friend

Molly Sapadin, Tinetti’s childhood friend, assisted in finding the truth surrounding the two coworkers’ bond. Sapadin was adopted from the Dominican Republic shortly after her birth in 1990. When the two girls were growing up in New Haven, Sapadin and Tinetti’s adoptive mothers were friends.

Madison is reportedly Sapadin’s third cousin, not his half-sister, according to a DNA survey. She was, however, eager to learn more about her biological family. Tinetti and Sapadin have the same mother in their adoption documents, according to Good Morning America. They want to do further DNA testing to determine whether the woman is her biological mother.

Tinetti’s hunch was eventually verified on January 28 when a DNA test confirmed the suspicions: they were long-lost sisters!
