Marcia Peterson has had an outstanding story to tell since last December, when she found out she has three sisters she never knew she had. Adopted as a baby, Marcia had a happy life as a member of the Huebner and Sather families, with one brother, also adopted.

“All my life, I wished I had a sister,” she said, “not even dreaming I had three of them.”

The road to discovery started after Marcia’s husband Sherman died last June. Going through his old papers, and coming across letters from Lutheran Social Services (LSS) sparked the idea of searching for Marcia’s adoptive mother.
