Chinese twin sisters who were divorced as babies & grew up hundreds of miles apart are & # 39; amazing & # 39; Similarly, their families revealed in a new TV program about their reunification.
Gracie Rainsberry and Audrey Doering, now 13 years old, were adopted by different American families after they were found in two different places and taken to the same orphanage in China.
Audrey grew nearly 1,500 miles from her sister in Wausau, Wisconsin, while Gracie lives in Richland, Washington.
Their new families had no idea that the girls had a brother or sister until they were 10 years old, when Audrey & # 39; s mother, Jennifer Doering, found a photo of both young people posing together as babies & posing with their Chinese foster mother.
The pair was live on TV & # 39; Good Morning America & # 39; reunited after they first met on FaceTime in December 2017.
The two sisters, both wearing glasses, had even agreed to wear identical outfits for their first meeting since their divorce.
Now a new TV program that examines long-lost families sees the girls traveling to London to be tested by experts who specialize in identical twins.

Audrey Doering and Gracie Rainsberry gave each other their first hug ever live at Good Morning America in 2017 when they had an emotional reunion
Despite their upbringing in different parts of the country and not seeing each other regularly until the age of 10, the parents of the girls say they act and behave in the same way.
During their first reunion, he discovered twins for the first time that they both love chicken Alfredo and mac & # 39; n & # 39; cheese.
They meet now several times a year, including going to summer camps together, and Audrey went to Gracie's house at Christmas last year.
Audrey said she will miss her sister when they separate and that the only difference between them is their sense of clothing.
She told me Mirror: & # 39; I just enjoy being with her. If we are not together, I miss her very much. We speak or text & # 39; every day. We have this connection, it's like it's part of me.
& # 39; The only way we are different is that I dress more than Gracie. I like to wear girl clothes and she wears more sporty clothes. & # 39;
Mrs. Doering found out that her daughter had a brother or sister when the schoolgirl asked for a sister for Christmas.
Instead, Mrs. Doering wanted to give her daughter a copy of her & # 39; search ad & # 39 ;, an image published in Chinese newspapers when a baby is placed in an orphanage in an attempt to find the parents.
This photo shows the twins as babies with their Chinese adoptive mother. The & # 39; search ad & # 39; was published in Chinese newspapers in an effort to find their biological parents. When Jennifer Doering saw it, she discovered that her daughter Audrey had a twin sister
She managed to retrieve a copy of the advertisement and was shocked when she discovered that it not only had a photo on it, but also two babies wearing matching clothes.
Mrs. Doering said: & # 39; We are surprised how equal they are. They talk the same, like the same things, to their favorite food and subjects.
& # 39; They smile one minute and cry the next. They both also get nervous and when they do, they put on their glasses in exactly the same way. & # 39;
The Doerings dug further and discovered that the other baby in the photo had a date of birth near Audrey and shared her congenital heart disease.
They contacted the Rainsberrys and told the news to their daughter.
Nicole Rainsberry, Gracie's mother, added: & I found it amazing that math was both their favorite subject and despite the fact that they both had heart problems that they were great athletes. & # 39;
Gracie said her sister & another part of me & # 39; and that they meet regularly.
She said: & # 39; I'm not sure how to explain it. Getting her is like having another part of me. When we talk and come together, I just feel a connection.
& # 39; I can talk to her about many things and I know she will help me through it, and I feel I can do the same for her. & # 39;
Gracie Rainsberry lives in Richland, Washington, with her family, including three other brothers and sisters – two brothers and one sister
Audrey (pictured above with her mother Jennifer) lives in Wausau, Wisconsin, with her three older brothers, nearly 1500 km from twin sister Gracie
The girls traveled to London for the ITV series Long Lost Family to meet expert Professor Tim Spector to conduct tests to see if nature or upbringing is their personality and behavior.
During a visit to St. Thomas Hospital in central London in April, their bone density, balance, grip, lung capacity and eye vision were tested and compared.
Descriptive at the time the couple was reunited in 2017, Mrs. Doering, she was astonished about the similarities between Gracie and Audrey, even in that first meeting.
She said: & # 39; When both girls came on the screen, it was an incredible moment. They just looked at each other and started crying.
& # 39; Both had their hair in ponytails aside and wore the same glasses.
& # 39; Although we live in different parts of the country, they spoke in exactly the same way. Their manners were exactly the same and they even cried in the same way. & # 39;
