LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Airports are always full of reunions. And in Little Rock Tuesday night, we're there as a 54-year-old brother from Pope County reunites with a sister he last saw when he was just two years old.
It was a big, big night for Edwin Feemster of Hector. He was just a baby when adoption separated him and his older sister Jennie. But the two are together again after a successful Internet search, and at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport Tuesday night, they were overwhelmed with joy.
"Yeah I am getting anxious," Edwin Feemster said.
The anxiety is building for Edwin Feemster. He's waiting for his sister Jennie at the airport.
"It's important to me, she's my sister, I want to know everything I can know about her," Feemster said.
He's eager to learn more about his older sister who he hasn't seen in 52 years. But that all changed on Tuesday night.
"I don't want to let her go, I want to be selfish and keep her," Feemster said.
"We're just going to catch up and talk and visit and we probably won't get any sleep," Jennie McCammon said.
McCammon came from Caldwell, Idaho on this trip along with two of Feemster's other sisters. Those sisters and Feemster were adopted as kids and only recently made contact with McCammon online.
"He's the baby, I'm the baby," the siblings joke together.
It's a new life-line to family that's coming at a good time for Feemster. He's struggling with Stage 3 Lung Cancer and heading to the doctor's Thursday for the latest update.
"We don't know what's going to happen, we don't know what they're going to tell them," McCammon said.
"But we'll deal with it together," Feemster said.
"We will deal with it tomorrow," McCammon said.
It's support for that baby brother in the hands that he's longed for, for far too long.
The family plans to spend the next week in Russellville catching up there at a hotel. And they tell us that in June they're going to meet their biological mother in Seattle for another reunion. Feemster says that will be the first time he sees her.
As for his lung cancer, Feemster says he'll find out Thursday if he'll need more chemotherapy or not.
