    I wish there was a law where you couldn't separate twins, or multiple birth siblings. So cruel.

    They both chose the same type of outfit to meet in , boxy tank-like shirts, and synthetic material bottoms. I found that interesting.

    Kind of need a follow up. Did they end up clicking and building a life together? So sad they were separated.

    I think it should be against the law to separately adopt out twins. Just my own opinion.

    Just think of all the people BEFORE social media was around...who never got the chance to meet their biological family members.

    They are very similar in their style of clothing and hair style, the sound alike and walk alike.
