US siblings reunite thanks to Facebook
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - An man has been reunited with his sister 65 years after the siblings were separated in foster care, thanks to a 7-year-old friend who searched Facebook.
66-year-old Clifford Boyson of Davenport, Iowa, met his sister Betty Billadeau, 70, in person on Saturday. Mrs Billadeau drove up from her home in Florissant, Missouri, with her daughter and granddaughter for the reunion at a hotel in Davenport.
The two siblings tried to find each other for years without success. They were placed in different foster homes in Chicago when they were children.
Then 7-year-old Eddie Hanzelin, who is the son of Mr Boyson's landlord, got involved.
