Long-Lost Siblings Meet for the First Time

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – A brother and sister meet for the first time! John Pilotte, a Luling resident, got a call from a woman 4 years ago, saying she was his sister.

John was given up for adoption and never met a biological sibling.

He and his sister, Susie Wilson, have been getting to know each other online and over the phone. Susie landed at Louis Armstrong International Airport over the weekend, where they met for the first time.

Reporter Deepak Saini was there to capture this emotional story.
