Two Brothers Reunite After 40 Years

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wa.- Tim Huus waits at the Greyhound station to pick up his brother. After 40 years of waiting, their prayers are answered today.

"I hoped some day I could find him. The lord above brought us here," said Curtis Huus.

Tim was adopted when he was three years old. He's now 44 and says loneliness and curiosity prompted him to begin a search for his family at the Salvation Army.

Been a long time coming and I cant believe this is actually happening," said Tim Huus.

He paid 50 dollars for a one-year search. On April 25th, only one week before the search would have ended, Tim got a phone call.

"This was more than I expected," said Huus.

Tim and Curtis talked on the phone and decided to meet up. They're not only reunited today, they are also roommates now.

"He's not going to leave my side. I can promise that."

Curtis took a 36-hour bus ride from Las Vegas and left his friends and job behind.

"I have him. He's in my life now. I don't have to worry about wishing, wondering where he is. I know where he is. He's with his bro now," said Curtis Huus.

Tim and Curtis plan to take a road trip to meet their sisters next year.
