NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
Three sisters who grew up apart in foster homes around Middle Tennessee met each other for the first time.
The sisters lost contact with each other over the years.
The oldest sister, Charlene, suffers from multiple sclerosis.
She met their youngest sister, April, for the first time.
Corla, the middle sister, coordinated the reunion.
"One day, pretty much, I was just at home, going to check my post office box as usual and low and behold, I see these letters," she said. "I get in my truck and tear it open and I see all of our sister's names in it."
She explained that all the sisters got the same letter, letting them know they had sisters and what their names were.
An old family friend sent the letters, although there is no word on why or what prompted her to release the information.
The sisters said they are going to try to get together with the rest of the family soon and be sure to stay in touch.
