Tulare woman turns to social media to find her biological sister

Five years ago, Jalisa Guzman learned that she had a younger sister, Monique, who was adopted when she was one year old.

TULARE, Calif. (KFSN) — A young South Valley woman takes to social media in hopes of finding her biological sister.

Jalisa Guzman tweeted on October 17 that she wanted to reunite with her younger sister.

It’s a shot in the dark, but Guzman hopes it’s a shot that lands in front of the right person.

“Twitter is like the second biggest thing you can go on and post all your stuff besides TikTok,” she said. “I just thought I’d throw it mostly like, you never know what might happen.”

Five years ago, Guzman learned that she had a younger sister, who was adopted when she was one year old. Guzman’s older brother told her that after finding her and reaching out, once she was 18.

“He came and found us when our father died. He came and found me, told me we had other siblings, that we had about four or five siblings – six d ‘between us in everything,'” Guzman recalled.

Since California is a closed adoption state, Guzman doesn’t have much information about his sister Monique, other than what his grandmother knows.

Guzman’s grandmother also gave him a photo of Monique as a toddler, but you can barely see her face.

“Does she look like my brother?” Does she look like our father? Does she have a big forehead like us? Guzman wondered. “Does she have freckles? Because we all have freckles.”

His tweet reached people around the world. Many wish him good luck. Private detectives also offer their help.

Guzman remains hopeful and wishes to add one more person to his large family.

“I just can’t wait to see who you are, to see who you’ve become,” she said. “Just know that we all already love you!”
