They were born on the same day to the same mother, but immediately separated and raised on two separate continents. Then, by a remarkable stroke of luck online, twin sisters finally reunited. As Kelly Wallace show us, the "twinsters" are making a movie to share their journey. "On February 21, 2013, I got a message on Facebook from a girl in London," says Sam Futerman. "It said she had seen me in a YouTube video, and then after looking my name up online, saw that we were both adopted, and born on the same day, in the same city. When I saw her profile, it was crazy, she looked just like me." "Describe that moment for us when you see each other for the first time," says CNN's Kelly Wallace. "Oh, so I was really nervous. Sam was very late for a Skype call and had me waiting, It was really late at night," says Anais Bordier. "And I got super excited and I didn't know, what am I going to tell her? What are we going to talk about? Maybe she's going to look very different. Then, she calls in and instantly, I guess we bonded after one minute." "Oh my God we," says Sam "My connection is really bad," Anais says. "Oh my God, you're European!" exclaims Sam. "Another amazing part of this story, right? I mean, similar expressions, you said. Similar laughs," Wallace says. "We hate cooked carrots," Sam says. "I heard, what's up with cooked carrots? asks Wallace. "You do not like them?" "I don't know, raw carrots are cool," Sam says. "Our nail polish is always very similar or the same. Haircuts." "Well, that's it also," Wallace says. "Looking at your baby pictures, you have, like the same haircuts. That's amazing right? What did you thinks when you saw that you looked identical, even as babies, raised in two different parts of the world?" "It was like that holy, moment, you know, you're like, oh my gosh!" Sam says. "This is weird," Wallace says. "Yeah, yeah," Sam replies. "And neither of your parents knew that, that we were twins. It was the baby pictures that did it, I think." "Do you ever think about, if you were living at a time when there was no social media, you probably would not have reunited?" Wallace asks "Ten years ago was when it wouldn't have been possible at all. Don't look upset about it." Anais says. "How do you process that?" asks Wallace. :Everything is meant to be. It's meant to happen, so, and when you, when an event occurs, it opens and a pathway to something new to happen," Sam says. "I was abandoned and I just realized people loved me like a long time before," Anais says. "Do either of you have a desire to follow the journey of finding your birth mother and connecting with her?" Wallace asks. "Finding our birth mother is a difficult topic. She wasn't necessarily as warm to us as we had hoped for, but I, if we learned anything in this story, it's that things will happen as they should," Sam says. "And if one day she wants to reach out to us, then we're here and we're willing and we're ready." "How often do you connect now?" Wallace asks. "Do you, are you talking all day? How do you connect now?" "Every day," Sam says. "Every second," Anais says. "Al day," Sam says. "Basically, I wake up to 20 text messages: What are you doing? I'm on my way to work. It's cold out. My shoe broke. You know, anything, just completely arbitrary things that happened during the day." "We're not worried about being separated again," Sam continues. "We know I'll never let it happen." Samantha and Anais are currently producing a documentary film about their unlikely reunion. You can learn more by searching "Twinsters Movie" on Facebook.
