Karen Warner and Mike Jackman knew they were adopted, but they didn't know about each other until recently. The fraternal twins live just blocks apart.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Twins in Elwood, Ind., didn't have to go far to be reunited. Karen Warner and Mike Jackman knew they were adopted but didn't know about each other until Indiana unsealed adoption records. Warner says she discovered she had a fraternal twin, a brother. WTHR reports they lived blocks apart. They were once classmates, were already friends on social media. And Jackman says the discovery, quote, "filled a void in my life I didn't know was there." It's MORNING EDITION.
