Co-workers discover they are biological sisters: 'We just kind of hit it off right away'


Two women working alongside each other at a Connecticut bar recently learned they are actually biological sisters.

Julia Tinetti, 31, and Cassandra Madison, 32, met while working at the Russian Lady Bar in New Haven, Good Morning America reported.

The two quickly discovered they were both adopted from the Dominican Republic after noticing matching tattoos of their home country.

"After that moment, we were so tight," Tinetti told the outlet. "We started hanging out. We would go out for drinks, for dinner. We started dressing alike."

“I thought she was cool,” added Madison. “We just kind of hit it off right away, It was very natural.”

Despite their strong physical resemblance, Tinetti and Madison didn’t believe they were related at first. They even compared adoption papers which listed conflicting information.

"Papers said we were from two different cities [with] different last names. And, our mothers' names on our paperwork were different," Tinetti said.

Their minds were changed in 2018 when Madison’s adoptive mother gave her a 23andMe DNA test for Christmas. The results eventually led Madison to her biological father in the Dominican Republic.
