92-year-old Mariann Evelyn Jeffery of Southgate, Michigan, was adopted as a baby and was raised as an only child.
So, for 92 years of her life, she raised her own family without realizing that she had half-brothers and sisters out there. Lots of them.
Thanks to some online research, she learned that she has 18 half-siblings, many of whom lived in the same city she did.
Last month, all the family members got together for a first-ever family reunion, featuring old family photos and an organized family tree hanging on the walls.
Mariann called the discovery “fun” and “absolutely amazing” – and is excited to keep in touch with everyone moving forward
