Orphaned Siblings Reunited 75 Years Later

Here’s a story from the Grand Rapids [Michigan] Press that’s both a heartwarmer and a tearjerker. In 1932, a destitute father dropped off six of his children at St. John’s Home, an orphanage in Grandville, Kent County, Michigan. On Saturday, the last of the children reunited. Some of the siblings have passed away, but their families have met the other siblings. The reunion “was the last in a series of reunions brought about by a handful of dim childhood memories, a few deathbed revelations and, ultimately, a series of Internet searches.”
