Twins unexpectedly find each other on social media

Twins unexpectedly find each other on social media

Anais Bordier, a fashion designer in London, saw Samantha Futerman, an actress in Los Angeles, on YouTube and thought they looked too eerily similar to not reach out. Bordier messaged Futerman on Facebook and the result was forever life changing. 

According to ABC News, Bordier said, "I think I feel a lot more confident knowing. It's like, yeah, I've found my second half back." That's right, Bordier and Futerman, 25, turned out to be twins.

"When I looked at the video . . . it was, like, shocking," Bordier says. "You can't imagine that you might have a twin sister somewhere that you don't know about."

Bordier and Futerman were born in Busan, South Korea, and placed in separate foster care agencies before both being adopted. Bordier is an only child, whereas Futerman was raised with two adoptive brothers.

This year for Christmas, Futerman bought a "Best Friends Forever" necklace to share with her sister, Bordier, tells "Good Morning America," "It sounds really cheesy, but I think we need those little kid's moments and those cheesy moments together." Having found each other is like "that feeling on Christmas when you open up the presents, the one you were asking for, it's that . . . pure feeling of joy ... that's how I always feel."

The sisters have since made a documentary, "Twinster," detailing their fated reunion.
