RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Two brothers who were put up for adoption have reunited in Rapid City after six decades.

Alfred Stein and Joseph Hawkins went more than 60 years without knowing each other existed until they were able to access adoption records that opened in Washington in 2014.

KNBN-TV (https://bit.ly/1NEbSSk ) reports that the brothers reconnected this weekend in Rapid City after two months of planning.

Hawkins tells the news station that he wanted to learn about his biological family because his adoptive parents weren’t very involved in his life. He says he’s always wanted a brother and now he finally has one.
