Details: Lori Smith is the long lost sister of Lorelei Smith. Lorelei was the only daughter of her adopted parents, but she always sensed that she had a missing sister. However, everyone told her that this "sister" did not exist, but Lorelei knew she had a sister. She said her sister had blonde hair and was pretty, and at that time in 1959, Lorelei did indeed have a sister, Lori, who was 1 1/2 years old and living in Alaska, even though Lorelei was in New Mexico. Eventually, Lorelei and Lori soon met learned that they had more in common than there first names.
