    I’m sad for their poor mother, they were taken from her without her being notified, and she wasn’t allowed to have them back. That must have been so sad. I’m happy these guys found each other again

    I'm a single dad of twins I cannot imagine the heartache of waking up and finding out your babies were gone. At least adopted is better than disappeared I suppose, but I'm crying for that woman rn. I could not live with that always searching always wondering never knowing. Who is protecting them? Are they safe? I could not. I feel so sorry for her.

      @Beirut27 The corrupted prostates of church and prejudice did this too many. I sense they hid my baby son or malpractices but not sure if baby is rip or alive even though grave. One I raise. Brilliant twin in his character and me I trust no one but God just I do not sense my other little son died. I was young 16 near 17 and supposedly 4 weeks early. Premature 5 lb and 4.13lb I think...identitical higher stalked for research

      The video says she was not healthy, and indeed, she died when the boys were six. It might have been obvious at the time that the children would have a better chance of thriving as adoptees.
      Was she destitute? PTSD? We don't like to think about it, but many civilian Germans were in desperation at the end of the war and the following years.

      @Tsandza Dlamini Guess what! We Estonians have been under Germans, Polish, Swedish, Russians, Danish rulers. That was was from 1200 to 1918 and started 1939 again when WWII started and we got our independence again in 1991. Blacks have better life in USA than they have in Africa.

    I'm sooo happy for them. I feel for the mother, how horrible it was to have lost her children. I hope God allows her to know they are now together. It's unfortunate they didn't grow up together but at least God granted them the gift of spending their lives together in old age. Love this

      @Halsten Snowborn It was a different time back then. Women often were less educated than men, and had fewer job options. She may have suffered from depression; she was certainly ENTITLED to be depressed! The mother may have become overwhelmed and just gave up. Not because she was a bad mother, but because she likely had so few options. Europe was in chaos after WWII; there were few social support resources to fall back on.

      SAME!!!!!! I have a twin brother and it’s just us mom and dad couldn’t get pregnant for 11 years and then luckily by the grace of God, or whoever you or anyone else believes in as a higher, became pregnant at 33 and it was single-handedly the best thing that could have happened to parents that were desperate for having children. A true blessing. It makes me cry thinking about how devastating it was for my mother to not think she was ever going to have kids, I would be too! But as it obviously turns out for it in the end, she was the winner- and ended up with two children, both a girl and a boy, healthy as could be, and at the same time. 😊. I wouldn’t have had it any other way either!!! I love my parents and being a twin so much. ❤️.

You have seen propaganda about Hillary. I have seen propaganda about Trump. Why can't you and I rise above that? Why judge one another? That is what starts the wars that cause the kind of suffering this mother endured.

    What a wonderful, sad story. Twins have an emotional attachment. My Mum was a twin, but her brother died when she was six weeks old. She didn't find out that she was adopted until she was 15 when she needed her birth certificate for work. She loved her adoptive parents immensely. I remember them well and they were lovely. They could have kept he secret as she had a birth certificate with her adopted name. I found that in her papers after she died. after her adopted mother died, she traced her real mother. My Mother, my younger sister and I went to visit her for a weekend. After that weekend, she contacted my Mother to say that she didn't want to see her again. In later years, when I spoke about it with my Mum, the circumstances of her birth made me suspect that her Mother was raped. She was in service as a Lady's Maid in 1934 in Belgravia. She was sent to a private nursing home to have the babies and went back into service. I think the father was someone the family knew, to treat her that way. Interestingly, she lived in a lovely area when we visited, so I think that she was 'looked after' either by the family or by the father of the children.
    My Mum talked a lot about her brother, wishing that they had grown up together.

      @macalauresmuse now it is much more common a lot of people don’t have the heart to split up siblings back then like you said it was after a war chaos was still around everyone was very very broke and we’re barely surviving so adding an adopted kid in the mix wasn’t much of an option for most family’s and I have a feeling the adoptive family’s probably weren’t even always told that the kid they were adopting had other siblings so they never got the chance

      Me too, the bond that my twin sons, & my twin grand-daughters have, is unbelievable. My twin grand-daughters born from my oldest son (he is not a twin). We love them deeply. Also my other grand-daughter, my oldest grand-daughter, grandson. We r soooo happy & grateful to GOD, AMEN.

    I'm an only child...I couldn't imagine knowing I had a sibling, much less a twin out there. I've always been jealous of true sibling bonds. I know some people grow apart from the people they grew up with...but to have someone so close in age to you that can be your best friend from birth must be glorious.

      @Just Sara A paper from Scientific American Mind in 2011 is a good place to start. ... I don't know how to link it but if you type "Social Before Birth: Twins First Interact With Each Other As Fetuses" on the Google search line I'm sure it will come up... and you'll find it fascinating BECAUSE you're a twin. .. cheers.

      @Mark Marsh Point taken. I guess I can only speak from my own experience - I do not remember womb-time with my sister, and I don't "feel like a twin" or anything, I just know I am one. Could you possibly point me toward the science you mention? I'd actually love to read up on it!

    • Just Sara
      Just Sara Year ago

      Not to be a downer, but I kind of disagree. I am a twin myself, but there really is not a way this can realistically be true. Deep in all our hearts, we know we long for very deep connection, though. We all need that, but we do not remember that far back. A baby in a dark womb can't tell that's another person with them in there.

      *I literally just watched that before this one, except that was MOTHER and DAUGHTER..Sooo heartbreaking...And you think you cried on this one, watch that one. By the time i watched this one, I'd cried my heart out, so no more tears lol. The girl is that girl from Australia who was on the 'X Factor' and 'the voice' and she's black but "Indian black." She's gorgeous too. So she gets to Sri Lanka and her mum doesn't speak English and this girl was adopted @6wks old and has been in Australia so she doesn't know whatever language...BUT it's so beautiful she comes around the corner and she goes straight to the front of the lady she believes is her mom and it is! Then after that no words need be spoken! Their tears and hugs I guess says it all! Oh, and the music..She couldn't hesitate to sing in the end! Ugh! I kinda cried! (Then my 4month old who's been crying most of the day starts laughing! And am serious! I must look like Kim K.W. crying when i cry!)* 😂

      Amanda Meyers She was denied more than that. She lived in a concentration camp. After all that torture, they top it off with denying her the right to see her kids. It's very sad.

      If you paid attention, they were repatriated to Poland without the mother being informed, and was told she would never get them back.

      Bondi they are for ternal twins. For ternal twins are hereditary. Identical twins are a chance. The bond between twins is some thing unexplainable. I am a fraternal twin, we can feel each other symptoms unfortunately sometimes even depression. There is no need to look like your twin in order to have a connection. Just thought I’d share😃
