Siblings, separated as foster kids, look to become cops and find each other
NEWARK — A recruiting trip at Rutgers University led to the unexpected reunion of a brother and sister, who both turn out to be interested in law enforcement.
State Police said that the young recruits, Terrell and Faith, were at a job fair at Rutgers-Newark where they spotted each other for the first time in eight years as they spoke with Trooper II Quaron Crenshaw about a career with the force.
Terrell and Faith were placed in separate foster homes and lost touch after Faith's last name was changed by her family.
"It was amazing to be there to witness the moment they were reunited. I am hoping they keep following their dreams and one day have a career in law enforcement," Crenshaw, a 7-year veteran of the force, said.
Crenshaw was also a foster child.
"It's absolutely amazing that these two found each other," State Police wrote on Facebook. "It's amazing that although they were separated for so long, they both unknowingly held an interest in helping others by considering a career in law enforcement. And it's amazing that they found a State Police recruiter, who has an extraordinary story of his own, to help guide these extraordinary young people!"
