She was heartbroken to find out that her father had died in 2002 but found out about two half sisters from his obituary. She tried finding them on Facebook but that didn’t help until in June 2017 a woman named Dawn moved in next door with her partner.

Hillary found out that Dawn was from the same place where her half sister lived and later saw her surname on a package. She later asked Dawn who her father was and realised that they had the same father.
