Chance encounter reunites siblings after 61 years

Alice and Sandy's mother was a nurse in Puerto Rico when she gave up custody of their brother, Bernardo, when he was just an infant. The sisters say it was their mother's wish that the three would be reunited, but their attempts were unsuccessful. Decades later it was a chance encounter on a cruise ship that started their unlikely story. A woman told Alice that she knew a man with her maiden name "and you know what? ... He looks like [Sandy]." The stranger helped the group connect, which led to this emotional reunion at a Tampa airport. As Alice told Bernardo after they embraced: "you have a family now."
