While the idea of destiny seems mind-boggling, what these two Missouri couples experienced might change your idea about predetermined fate.
After having three children, Staci and Jim Maneage decided to adopt a little Chinese girl named Elliana who needed a loving home. She was diagnosed with a brain disorder, and it was partly the reason why some potential parents declined to take her in. Thanks to the Maneages who wholeheartedly welcomed her into their hearts, she was finally given a home.
In an interesting twist of fate, a couple in the same neighborhood as the Maneages, Steve and Paige Galbierz, also adopted a child from China as well. They named her Kinley, and she surprisingly had the same condition as Elliana. The two Missouri couples often bumped into each other as both families went to the same church.
The two adopted children instantly became close friends.
Due to their shared ethnicity, they shared similar features. However, when their adoptive parents decided to have them undergo a DNA test, they were astounded to learn that the two girls are actually biological sisters.
“I think all of us were just looking at the odds. She was literally out-of-her-mind excited. She had that grin on for a couple of hours.”
What an amazing twist of fate!
