Pa. woman meets adopted brother after 80 years

It was a reunion between a brother and sister more than 80 years in the making.

Eighty-seven-year-old Betty Housseal from York County, Pennsylvania, was always curious to meet her brother, who was put up for adoption at 3-months-old.


Her great-granddaughter decided to help by reaching out on social media for clues.

In just a few weeks, she tracked him down and set up a meeting.


The two met and shared a long awaited hug.

Betty says now she feels like a missing piece is now in place.
