MAPLEWOOD, MN - An online search leads a Minnesota woman to a family she never knew she had.
Delores Viola has had a good life, she just feels like a piece of it is missing.
"I have, I have, I wouldn't change it for anything in the world," she says. "As I'm growing older, I thought I really would like to know who I am."
Delores was in her 50s when she learned at the age of 13 months she'd been given up for adoption.
"I was shocked to learn this," said Delores.
Her curiosity led her to the website ancestry.com , where Delores soon learned she had a sister living in Michigan.
Betty Lou Overholser and her daughters decided nearly eight decades apart was long enough.
At 83 years old, Delores has a new sister and nieces.
She learned her mother gave her up for adoption before dying at 31 years old, after which Betty Lou and four other siblings were given up for adoption, too.
What Betty Lou and Delores always pictured, today they finally have.
"I'm so, so glad," Delores said. "Now I'm a whole person."
