Sisters, found.

Samantha Futerman, who grew up in Verona after being adopted from South Korea, has hit her goal for funding the movie about her adoption.

Futerman and her twin sister Anais Bordier (yes, it’s confirmed), sent out an email last night announcing that their Kickstarter campaign had reached their goal of $80,000. They had until February 19 to get all the pledges.

Futerman and Bordier were born on the same date in the same Korean city but separated; one was raised in Verona and the other in Paris. Since  March 2013, when Bordier reached out to Futerman through Facebook, they have been trying to figure out how they came to be separated and making a documentary about their discoveries. The young women got a big boost on February 11, when  Good Morning America co-anchor Josh Elliott devoted a lengthy interview to them.

No word yet on when the movie will be released.
