WASHINGTON (WUSA 9) -- This is the way it should be, two sisters talking like sisters.
"Every weekend we go over each other's house," says Jordan.
It's a clear evening at Wilson High School in northwest and Jordan Dickerson and her sister, Robin Jeter, laugh and giggle at pictures of their youth. They have a right to be giddy because they're making up for lost time.
"I come up here almost every day," says Robin.
The sisters are together now but for so long their lives were separate. Jordan, a junior at Wilson High School, was adopted shortly after her birth. Robin, a senior at Friendship Collegiate, bounced around from her biological mother, to foster care, to a legal guardian. For 17 years they lived in the same city, played some of the same sports, but never crossing paths.
