Demetre Papageorgiou grew up as the oldest child of George and Cynthia, Greek immigrants, who settled in the Midwest. All of that changed when Demetre got a call from a man named Chris Bone of Dallas, Texas – a man who, it turned out, was his half brother. That day Demetre found out that not only did he have a half brother he never knew about but 7 other siblings as well.

This is the story of 5 brothers and 4 sisters, separated by distance and decades, coming together for the first time, thanks to online DNA testing.

This is a story of brothers and sisters who beat the odds to find the loving family they never knew they were looking for.
