Man Abandoned At Birth Meets Three Of His Siblings

A man in the U.K. who was abandoned as a newborn has finally met his biological siblings. Simon Jeffrey was left in a wooden box with two cans of corned beef outside a bar in 1963 and still has his umbilical cord attached when he was found. The 56-year-old has spent his life searching for his family and after a DNA test, he’s found he had six siblings and has met three of them.

Jeffrey was adopted and grew up in Kent, England, which it turns out is near where his extended family lives. When they learned they had a brother they never knew about, three of his four living siblings agreed to meet with him. Now he’s getting to know his two sisters and a brother and they’re all loving it.

“He’s our little baby brother and hopefully we’ll be one happy family,” Jeffrey’s sister Christine says.
