Pam told Femail: ‘My brother knew I wasn’t ready to talk about us not being full siblings, so he wrote it instead. 
'Instead of breaking us apart, it made us even closer. He even tells me he feels bad for joking around that I was the adopted one in the family because I was different than everyone else. 
'But despite all of that, I believe blood does not define family. And I have never seen him any differently.’Many people replied to the 18-year-old's tweet with gifs of people and celebrities, including Naomi Campbell, crying, as they struggled to contain their emotions. 
Admitting it had made him well up, one follower joked: 'My eyes are sweating!' amid an influx of replies. 
'My little brother found out I’m not his fully sister and I came home to this.. I’m crying,' Pamela wrote alongside a picture of the snacks Jared had bought her along with the letter
