In 2009 Rachelle Dyer and Shannon Nicoll attended a concert together and snapped a selfie. The women’s mutual friends kept insisting that the pair looked alike, but they thought nothing of the resemblance – until 2019, that is, when modern technology revealed the remarkable truth. You see, Dyer and Nicoll – as well as each of their sisters – actually share the same mom.
Back in 2004 Dyer headed nearly 2,500 miles from her hometown of Seattle, Washington, to Virginia Beach, Virginia, for a fresh start. There, she got a job as a special education teacher at Tallwood Elementary. And the woman’s loving family came with her, too. “I have the most amazing son and husband! I am a lucky woman!” she shared on her Facebook page.
Eventually, Dyer came to know Virginia Beach-native Nicoll. And right off the bat, the women shared a connection. After all, Nicoll had completed her teacher training at Tallwood Elementary where Dyer now worked. But while the two never actually met at the institution – since Nicoll went on to teach at King’s Grant Elementary – it seems that they were somehow destined to cross paths.
