HALIFAX, Nova Scotia — A woman is reunited with the roller skates she owned as a teen 40 years later.
Renée Forrestall of Canada thought it was unusual that she found a pair of skates online that looked just like her old ones.
Once she got her foot in one of the skates, she knew she found a good fit.
"It's like a Cinderella and the slipper moment. It was very strange. It was like the perfect fit. I couldn't believe it. And they felt good. It wasn't even like the new ones that I had. It was like they were broken into my foot,” Forrestall said.
She then asked the seller where he got the skates
“As he's telling me, I flip back the tongue and there's my name. And I was like, ‘what?!’ I thought, I couldn't even believe it. I thought ‘who? How?’ I said, ‘this is me! These were mine,” Forrestall exclaimed.
She said she doesn’t think this was a coincidence.
"The universe works in mysterious ways, you know? And i think things come around for a reason,” Forrestall said.
