for uterine sister
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :
sibling \sib"ling\ [sub + -ling.] (s[i^]b"l[i^]ng), n.
a brother or a sister.
Note: Siblings have at least one parent in common. Those
related only by a common mother are uterine siblings;
those related only by a common father are agnate
siblings or consanguine siblings (a legal term). A
sibling having both parents in common is a
sibling-german or a full brother or full sister.
These modifying terms are more commonly used for the
more specific uterine brother, uterine sister,
agnate brother, brother-german, etc.
