Siblings reunited iPad

Two siblings separated for 60 years are reunited. All it took was a 7-year old boy and his iPad. 

Clifford Boyson and his four other siblings were placed in different foster homes in Chicago when they were little, and hadn't seen each other since.

Recently, Boyson was reunited with the only living sibling left -- his sister, Betty.

"My heart was going 60 miles per hour, I never thought it would come true," Boyson told Davenport, Iowa, TV station WQAD.

He had tried several times to find his sister and was ready to give up until his landlord's 7-year-old son, Eddie, looked Betty Billadeau up on Facebook with his iPad.

"It just felt good cause I hadn't know I had brothers," Billadeau told WQAD.

The siblings are so thankful to Eddie for helping them, that they've opened a college fund in his name.
