An uncanny resemblance

“Trena unwittingly saw my TikTok videos from a neighbor who mistook them for her work because of our resemblance" Treni said.

"Trena dismissed the videos at first until her neighbors and [our] siblings noted our resemblance.” 

“They then contacted me on TikTok and other social media platforms where they asked personal questions like my full name or who my parents were. I ignored the questions because I thought they were a scam,” Treni said.

Coming to terms

“But then one of my [biological] older siblings mentioned my [foster parents’] name and sent a photo of Trena’s ID. I still dismissed the evidence until I checked Trena’s Facebook account.

“I saw how we strongly resembled one another in our photos or the way we wore our hijabs. My natural siblings suggested I confront my [foster] mother, but my [biological] father did so instead of me, as I did not want to distress her,” Treni noted.

"Even then my [foster] mother held on to me, so my [biological] father had to reassure her that he will not take me away.” Treni held no hard feelings against her foster mother for withholding the truth.

“I am indescribably overjoyed at the prospect of meeting [my biological family],” she said.
