RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Two U.S. families in Chicago and in Miami adopted Chinese babies and called them both Mia. The mothers ended up chatting online at a Web site devoted to international adoptions and discovered both girls were born at the same time and abandoned on the same spot near a textile factory. That coincidence led to DNA testing, the discovery that the girls had the same parent, and, last week in Chicago, a reunion of the probable twin sisters. It's MORNING EDITION.
