Imagine one day opening Facebook and reading a message from a stranger that says, "I think we might be twins...don't freak out..."
It all began when design student Anais Bordier viewed a YouTube video and saw her own face staring back. After some research, Anais found that the Los Angeles actress Samantha Futerman was born in a South Korean port city called Busan on November 19, 1987--the exact same location and day that Anais was born. This propelled her to make contact--via Facebook. One message later, both girls wondered: Could they be twins?
Thus begins their remarkable journey to build a relationship as sisters, continents apart. Over Facebook, Twitter, and Skype, they learned that they shared much more than a strikingly similar appearance. Eventually, they traveled to Korea together to discover more about the land of their separation. "Separated @ Birth "is a story that spans the world and peels back some of the complex and emotional layers of foreign adoption.
