Helen Knox, now 32, was found in Chesterfield on a cold, freezing December morning in 1988, before being adopted into a loving family – but she was eager to learn more about her biological family.

Through DNA testing, the Long Lost Family team discovered the maternal half-sister of mother-of-two, Jess, who surprisingly is also a foundling, having been left on the side of the road while ‘she was a baby 14 months before Helen was born.

The two were captured meeting for the first time in touching scenes on tonight’s ITV program.

The team, through DNA testing, were able to find the maternal half-sister of Helen (left) Jess (pictured right), from Newmarket, who is also a foundling, having been abandoned while she was baby.

Before meeting her sister, delighted Helen said, “It’s a great thing to meet my half-sister. It’s a very big, life changing thing for both of us.

“It’s not just something that’s going to happen today. It will be us for the rest of our lives. It’s exciting. ‘

Jess seemed just as keen to establish a lasting relationship with her younger brother, saying, “Being a foundling you never think you will find anyone, so meeting her today will be something really special.

“It can be quite lonely to be a foundling, and she probably has very similar if not the same thoughts, which to me is amazing because I’ve never had anyone who really understands how I feel. “

Helen and Jess, after passing Covid tests, met safely at a Northamptonshire hotel, both getting emotional as they shared their stories and exchanged family photos.
