Neighbors Become Friends, Then Siblings

Candace Eloph discovered that the guy living across the street was her long-lost brother.

She had moved into a Shreveport neighborhood, across the street from a couple who had a 32-year-old son. Eight months ago, that 32-year-old son, Jamie Wheat, moved back in with his parents.

He and Eloph became friends -- and one day started talking about family.

"We were sitting one day and talking and she said, 'I had a brother born Jan. 27, 1977, that was adopted,'" Wheat recalled. "I was like -- I was adopted. My mom was 16 when she gave me up for adoption." [Link, via Megan's tweet]
