Wow, can you imagine?!

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Two women enrolled in a Columbia University writing class have found their own lives were a story better than fiction.

Turns out, they were sisters born to the same teenage mother in the early 1980s and adopted by different families.

Lizzie Valverde and Katy Olson discovered they were sisters during a writing class in January 2013, according to The New York Times.

Olson grew up mostly in Florida and Iowa while Valverde lived in New Jersey. Both moved to New York as adults and enrolled in Columbia’s School of General Studies.

Olson figured out the connection when Valverde introduced herself to the writing class and talked about being adopted.

The 35-year-old Valverde will graduate on Monday. Olson, 34, and their biological mother, Leslie Parker, will be in attendance.
