Kara Mortensen and Cheryl Satterthwaite, who live just miles apart in northern Utah, discovered that the children they adopted have the same birth mother. The children, Eli and AleyahJai, now enjoy regular outings together and their parents are excited to have their children share beautiful journeys as they grow up.

"They love being around each other, and you can see that in their cute faces. You can tell that they always want to be together."
