    Twins should legally never ever be separated. That's just cruel.

    *HOW IS THERE NOT A LAW TO STOP AGENCIES FROM SPLITTING UP SIBLINGS?!?* It is absolutely *INSANE* to me that this has ever been okay. Children are not f***ing puppies in a litter who can just be sold off first-come-first-serve!

    No I guarantee people would have wanted twins... But maybe they got less 💰 with the agency

    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.

    Why was the mother of these children aloud to continue to be fertile.

    That's really nice if your friends, why did that mother keep having kids to fork out on someone else

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

    Thats how I found my family. I was in a closed adoption through a catholic service and I did DNA and facebook and found them.

    I saw interviews of the separated triplets. Playing with peoples lives in the name of science is disgusting. I wonder how many other twins are unaware of this agencies recklessness

    Twins are not intentionally separated for scientific reasons. If it has happened in isolated incidents, it's because the people making these decisions were morally bankrupt and it has nothing to do with science. Science in and of itself is neutral just like math, writing, language, etc. It's the human who applies science that we should be criticizing and not science itself.

    +Nina Diniz Yes, It's disgusting! And I'm sure it's probably even more than 2 sets since they were researching this experiment for almost 20 years.

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

  • Ar Sparfell

    It's complicated to keep them together, but at least, they should be informated that they have a sibling adopted in another family...

    then there would be less adoptions. It's better to have a kid separated from a twin living in a loving home rather than both of them in foster care

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