There are many stunning coincidences in the tales of biological family members reunited. Like the two sisters, raised by separate families, who'd both named their daughters Jennifer. Or the father who was reunited with his daughter, only to discover that they'd been volunteering together at the same place for months.

Darren Wardle, 47, from Staffordshire, U.K., had a similar shock when he located his own birth father. Turns out, they were both as school crossing guards, or as they call them in the U.K., lollipop men, for the same county council. They lived just 15 miles apart, and according to the Daily Mail, were applying for the same job.
