Two 57-year-old women happened to find out they were switched at birth, and both were not raised in their biological families. According to The New York Post, Tina Ennis and Jill Lopez were born on the same day, May 18, 1964, at a hospital in Duncan, Oklahoma. Although Tina and Jill had always been perplexed by their lack of outward resemblance to their parents, they couldn't even imagine that they were foster children.

Ennis discovered the truth after she and her 26-year-old daughter decided to take DNA tests looking for Ennis’ estranged grandfather. Tina was shocked when she realized that the people she used to think of as family were in fact not her blood relatives. Eventually, the woman managed to track down her "sister" Jill Lopez. Tina convinced her to take a DNA test, too. It turned out that Kathryn Jones, who raised Tina, was actually Lopez's biological mother. Mother and daughter reunited, saying that they had mixed feelings.

Ennis' biological parents had passed away before they even knew they were raising someone else's child all their lives.

Tina admitted that she was a little jealous of Jill:

"Jill got to be with my real parents, and now she gets to be with my parents I grew up with," she said. "I didn't know what to think about it at first, but the more I think about it, it makes me really sad."

Now three women, Tina, Jill and Kathryn, have sued the hospital, accusing it of negligence and infliction of emotional distress.

The hospital denies the charges on the grounds that the medical facility where the two women were born no longer exists. In 1975 it merged with other local hospital.
