3 Brothers Separated at Birth Finally Meet After 70-Plus Years

Better late than never is the new mantra for three elderly brothers who
met for the first time this weekend after being separated more than 70
years ago.

Since meeting at a Florida airport Friday, David Beyer, 75, Noel
Thompson, 70, and Donald Thompson, 92, have relished spending recent
days getting to know each

other before they fly back to their respective
homes across the country, the brothers told ABC News.

“You can’t believe how much joy this has brought,” Beyer of Fort Myers, Fla., said.

All three brothers have the same father, but only Beyer, who was born
out of wedlock, was offered up for adoption before he was born. He said
he knew that he had a younger, full biological brother somewhere out
there. 

“I knew Noel existed, but it would be a fleeting thought,” he said.

What he didn’t realize was that he also had another, older half-brother,
Donald Thompson, who was born to a different mother and had gone to
live with her after their father left.

Donald Thompson became aware of his youngest half-brother, Noel
Thompson’s existence after their grandfather’s obituary revealed he had
left behind another grandson. He had been searching for him for a number
of years, without success. 

It wasn’t until Beyer’s daughter, Nancy Taylor, 49, jumped onto
ancestry.com four months ago and did some exhaustive research that the
mystery of her father’s family origins began to become clearer. 

Taylor said the “need to know” who her grandmother was drove her to dig
deeper into the family’s roots. The mother of the men falsified some
aspects of their birth records with misspelled names, so it took a lot
of digging for Taylor to uncover the truth.

“I wasn’t going to stop until I found them,” she said. “When I did find them, it was more a relief than a surprise.” 

After weeks of careful investigation and a few nerve-wracking cold
calls, Taylor tracked down both of her father’s brothers and finally
united the trio. 

The siblings, who sat talking and laughing in Beyer’s living room
Saturday afternoon, said the similarities between them were not so much
physical as they were mental.

“I never thought this would happen,” big brother Donald Thompson of
Michigan said Saturday. “I can’t believe the bond that’s been created
between us, although we’ve only seen each other for the first time. The
blood in our veins is mingling right now.” 

The three were already talking about the next time they might be able to
visit and about meeting the rest of their newly discovered families.
Donald Thompson and Noel Thompson are even considering moving to Florida
so all three can be closer to each other.

“There’s a whole generation of people we don’t know yet,” Beyer said. “This has been a day and a half of unimaginable things.” 

Noel Thompson of Arizona said, “It’s like an empty feeling that you’ve
had all your life. You don’t know, though, until you find what it is
that can fill that.”
