Adopted Woman Finds Long-Lost Sister Right Next Door

What are the odds? Hillary Harris was adopted as an infant. She searched for her birth family as an adult, and after many years, her search was incomplete. She knew she had a half sister, and she knew the sister’s name from her adoption file, but she couldn’t find her. Then one day last year, a strange thing happened. A couple moved in next door to the home Harris and her husband own in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The woman’s name was Dawn, and she was from Greenwood, Wisconsin, the same place Harris’ sister lived, according to the adoption file.

I suspect you have already guessed the rest of the story. However, you might want to read the details of earlier adoption search and the eventual reunion in an article by Allison Klein in the NewsOK web site at:


Just like our MURPHY grandmothers who never knew they lived on Binghamton’s west side ! gg


I went to the link in the article “Adopted Woman Finds Long-Lost Sister Right Next Door”. Then in a link within the one you posted up popped an alert supposedly from Microsoft warning that the site was pornographic, etc. I decided it was a false warning and didn’t phone the number listed. That proved to be a big problem because I couldn’t get rid of the windows. After trying multiple times, I finally turned off my computer. Hours later I turned it on and have not had a problem, however I did not go back to the link. I’ve never had that happen with any of the links I’ve opened that you posted in the Newsletter, but think you should know about this one.


    You encountered a scam. It may or may not have been launched by that web site. The message certainly was not written by Microsoft. More likely it was written by a scammer. I just went to the same web site and DID NOT receive a pop-up message. Then again, I am using a Macintosh which is impervious to most Windows malware (malevolent software).

    Read my article, Is My Virus Checker Telling the Truth?, at as it explains all that.


    UPDATE: The pop-up screen that appeared on your computer has nothing to do with that web site nor with any other specific web site. It also did not come from Microsoft.

    The pop-up was caused by a bit of software that is stored in your computer and might appear at any time when visiting any web site. It is a new variant of an old scam. The new variant is floating around a lot these days.
