According to the Daily Mail, 39-year-old Adriana and 37-year-old Leandro both knew that they had been abandoned as infants in Brazil.

The two also knew that their mothers had the same name, Maria.  These two facts alone seemed like just a coincidence and nothing more.

When Adriana and Leandro met ten years ago for the first time, they quickly fell in love. A few years later they decided to marry and now have a seven year old daughter.

In her search to find her mother Adriana contacted a radio station that had a program called ‘The Time Is Now’, which specialises in finding lost relatives.  The two were reunited on-air, but then her mother revealed that she has a brother.

Translation of part of the Radio Globo interview:

Mother, you had other children besides me?” He said.
Yes,  had the Leandro,’ but it was with another man, was not his father,” Mariasaid.
Upon hearing the story of her mother, Adriana got desperate and started to cry compulsively.
I do not believe you’re telling me thisLeandro is my husband,” she said.

After the interview Adriana said, “Only death is going to separate us. All this happened because God wanted it to happen. Of course it would have been different if we had known all this before, but we didn’t and we fell in love.”

They said that they don’t blame their mother for abandoning them, and they plan to meet her in person soon.
