Long-lost brothers reunited at same college

Two as children seperated biological brothers discovered that they live as adults 15 minutes away from each other, attend the same school and study for the same major and minor.

Kieron Graham, 20 years old, and Vincent Ghant, 29 years old, were live on “Good Morning America” to share the story of their reunion.

"I was in disbelief. It was a very surreal moment and it took a while for it to set in," Ghant said on GMA. "during the conversation progress it really hits him to see that his brother is really here. He thought it was amazing.

"I was super surprised. I was amazed. I didn’t know what to think at first," Graham added. "I had so many emotions running through my head. I was just super excited to finally get to see what he looked like and talk to him on Facebook and everything."

Graham told that he was adopted by Tim and Sarah Graham when he was 3 months old. As much as he loves this family, he said that he began more curious about his biological family when he got older.

Eventually, Sarah Graham bought her adopted son a DNA test kit that he could register on the networking site Ancestry.com. It will help him to connect with his biological relatives.

Kieron Graham said that the site identified Ghant, who was also registered in the DNA network, as a very strong genetic match to his own DNA.

They found each other eventually on Facebook, and after contacting eacht other, they discovered that they had the same birth mother.

"Growing up, my parents were always very open with my adoption so a few weeks ago, my adopted mom bought me a DNA test kit from Ancestry and last Tuesday I got the results and I was looking through and I recognized his name and I looked him up on Facebook and there he was," said Graham. "And I was just like, 'Wow,' finally after 20 years of thinking about it, there he was. It was amazing."
