In the 1960s, many aboriginal children were taken from their birth parents and placed into foster care in what is now referred to as the "60s scoop."  

Many of them spent their lives trying to reconnect with loved ones. Some never did. But brothers, Jim Poitras and Brian Reynoldson were lucky to find one another and meet in Saskatoon this spring. 

The recently reunited siblings told Saskatoon Morning host Leisha Grebinski about reconnecting after 60 years.
