KENT, Wash. - Jerry Wooliver of Auburn was born with cerebral palsy and was sent to an institution when he was five. He never saw his family - until now.

On Saturday Jerry met three of his sisters for the first time.

Brother and sisters ended up on a couch together, only after sister Karen hired a researcher who found Jerry.

Then with Jerry's help, they found twins Julie and Janis, who at one month old went to live with relatives after their mother's sudden death.

All these decades later, Janis got a call about her long lost siblings.

"I can still remember that day. I was standing in my kitchen when she said that... and it was like no, no, no way!" she said.

On Saturday the family was together again - and already planning for the holidays.
