Natalie Black (right) met her sister Morgan Dell (left) for the first time just before her graduation on Thursday from Payson High School. The girls were adopted by different families when they were babies and didn’t know about one another’s existence for years. Their adoptive parents arranged their meeting this week as a graduation surprise for Natalie.

“I’m shaking all over,” said a girl with jet-black hair and striking blue eyes, on the morning of a day she’s anticipated all her life. Oddly enough, she looks just like Payson High School senior Natalie Black. Well, actually: that’s not odd at all. She’s Natalie’s sister. But the two have never met — until today. And now after years of questions and quests, two families have arranged for these long-separated sisters to meet as a gift for Natalie’s graduation from high school.
