Women's Neighbor Turns Into Her Long-Lost Sister

Women's Neighbor Turns Into Her Long-Lost Sister

Hillary Harris of Eau Claire, Wisconsin was almost ready to move before she discovered something amazing about the house next door. The house beside Hillary shared a driveway with hers and there had been a constant stream of renters coming and going from the home. Some of those tenants were less than desirable and Hillary was fed up with it all.


When Dawn Johnson moved it, Hillary was downright cold to her. "She would not acknowledge me whatsoever,” Dawn said. But for some reason, Hillary’s 5-year-old daughter and Dawn struck up an unlikely bond. This led to Hillary’s husband getting to know their new neighbor. After starting a conversation, he found out that Dawn was from Greenwood, Wisconsin.

When Hillary was an infant, she was adopted but her adoption papers showed that she had a sister named Dawn Johnson from Greenwood. But Hillary and her husband just could not believe that their new neighbor could actually be her sister. That seemed like such a stretch. After doing a bit more research, and talking with Dawn, it was officially confirmed that Hillary’s frustrating neighbor next door was actually her long lost sister.

Now, these two are happy to be so close and share a driveway and Hillary is anything but cold to her. This just goes to show that you should never judge a book by it is cover and someone’s story could be just the one you have been waiting to hear all your life. Just how amazing is this unexpected reunion?
