    @lottogirl846 he said "our other story". Identical twins are identical in every way; if they look different they are not identical twins. On "this" story, there were facial differences in these two women so they are not identical twins.

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

    Victoria Katherine the only reason I disagree with that is because my dad adopted a little girl and my aunt adopted her twin brother as there was sexual abuse between the children and their biological parents, and they couldn't be housed together, but my family still wanted to keep them close so they will still know and grow with eachother.

    at least a law preventing separating twins/triplets for scientific purposes like these women were! did you see the documentary? its insane.

    A friend and her husband have adopted 3 siblings. They adopted their son, then 2 years later the adoption agency called and said the mother was expecting again were they interested in adopting...yes. 2 years later another call from the adoption agency. Now they have 3 siblings, and it has been a blessing for the children to be raised together. They actually have the same biological father and mother....and God bless the adoption agency for keeping them together.

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

    Yes they have similar style! But it's also interesting that life left its mark differently on their bodies and faces, making them a little bit different. They also seem to have very different personalities! The lady in pants looks more serious and the lady in skirt looks more bubbly

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

    Ann Schurman -Thanks! I was in hopes of finding such good news! So many times,the years are too hard to overcome,& I would've been strangely heartbroken, if that had happened to twins.

    The blonder one kind of looks like her. Put a dark curly wig on her and she would be the image of Janice x

    I didn’t hear what anyone said (half paying attention) but I thought “why is her son on that side?” Went back and realized she’s his aunt.
