A grandmother is a mother who has a second chance

Saturday, January 12, 2008


I saw an article online the other day about a couple who got married not realizing they were actually twins who had been separated at birth and adopted by different families!! It's really a sad story and rather horrifying to realize how easily that could happen. However, since I have boy/girl twins (who are now adults), I had to send them the article with a subject line of "This will make you shudder".

My son, Joe, wrote back: "Shuddering alright..... Hey, it happens in the South all the time!"

Jenni wrote back: "It makes me shudder and throw up a little bit in my mouth. No offense to you, of course, Joe. Those poor people!"

They crack me up.

how did they end up finding out they were related?

Both Joe and Jenni's comments made me laugh.

I too wonder how they found out they were related?

I heard about that too. It is very weird but I suppose it could happen.

Jenni's and Joe's comments were funny.

Hi Sandi.......Thanks for the visit to Amelia Rose Cottage and I will come and visit you often. I just love the name of your blog. Oh how I remember the little old lady walking to the store with her babushks on her head and bags of groceries weighing her down. What an awful thing that happened to the twins that married each other.
