Siblings Reunited After 60 Years

Posted: Updated:
Davenport, IA -

After being separated for 60 years, a Davenport, Iowa man was reunited this weekend with his sister, thanks to the help of a seven-year-old boy and his I-pad. Clifford and his four other siblings were placed in separate foster homes in Chicago when they were little. After being separated for 60 years, Clifford finally got to be reunited with his only living sibling, his sister Betty Billadeau.

How they were able to find each other is another story.

Clifford had tried several times to find his sister and was ready to give up but thanks to his landlord's seven year old son, Eddie, his dream came true.

The seven-year old searched for Betty's maiden name on Facebook and found her. Clifford is from Davenport. Betty is from St. Louis. Neither of them thought they had any family left.
