Thatís quite amazing. Twins separated at birth. Itís like a bad soap opera. Iím sure you must have many questions in your mind. I canít imagine how one would pick a twin to give up, let alone why. Good luck, I hope the experience is fulfilling for you.

Being made aware of this has made me want to get a test for me and my wife. You never know what youíll find, right?

Spent the day with my brother and his son. Couldnít have gone any better. Aside from the unique physical aspects we share with numerous other members of the family there were many likes, hobbies, interests, etc. plus things about our children that I share with them that are WAY too close to be coincidental. Both of us felt relaxed and comfortable with each other. The whole thing is mind boggling.

Howís this little addendum:

Both sides of my biological family have multigenerational histories of being long lived. They typically go over 90 y.o. and remain active and clear til they just topple over. My father passed at 94 and ďmomĒ is 92...socially active, lives alone & takes care of herself just fine...drives herself to her friends for cards and drinks (loves her daily whiskey!). My brother is taking her on a cruise to Hawaii soon, which sheís looking forward to. Cool!

So you bums will have me heckling and causing general mayhem around here for quite some time! Heh, heh, heh.

Well, I think we can live with that.

So glad it went well for you, Dave. Just goes to show you never know what's around the corner. Sometimes we get dealt a rotten hand, others we come up trumps. So pleased for you Mr BH.

What a kick Dave. Learning about family you never knew you had until just now. Hope you can arrange to meet everyone else, including and especially your biological mom.

So does your brother resemble you physically?


Cheers,

RR

In some ways yes, in some ways no. If we stood side by side itís unlikely that you would think weíre brothers...but we both have certain things that very few other people in the general population have. Most notably a gap between our front teeth...which both Mom and one sister have as well. But other things as well. Plus, every person that has seen pics of my nephew and my son say they really resemble each other. But thatís kind of a generalized thing instead of very specific things.

My story is actually not that unusual for 23andMe. Currently over 12 million people have used one of the big four DNA testing systems and that has resulted in quite a number finding blood relatives.

Plus - we are not interested in having our story made public.

My birth mother (92 y.o.) is not aware of this and neither of us has worked out whether she will ever be told. †For over seventy years it has been our parents choice not to bring this forward - and we are currently honoring that choice...privately.
