For those of you who don’t know…
I have a TWIN sister…. And we finally met! *dances*
And we finally figured out our whole story… here it is…
In 1984, our parents (whom we don’t know who they were), got married and after a couple of months our mother got pregnant of a set of twins. They were a poor but happy couple. They lived in VA by that time. In summer 1985, we were born. We were healthy babies. Our family was a very happy one. In a cold and snowy night of January 1986, our parents had a very bad car wreck as they were driving home from a date night. They both died. My sister and I were being taken care of by our good neighbors when the accident happened. The funeral services were done, and our neighbors, being poorer than our family was, couldn’t take care of us…so State and Foster Care split us up in late March. My sister was sent to a very nice and loving family. Actually, this family had a big share in a hamburger company, so they were very wealthy. I was sent to a family of baptist missionaries. When I was 6 years old, we moved to the Caribbean.
When I was about 16 years old, my foster parents talked to me about my twin sister. Why they waited so long to tell me, I don’t understand yet. Since then I had been trying to find her, but all my efforts were in vain. On Monday (yes, this week ), I finally found her!!! Wooohooo!!! I found out that she’d been looking for me too…so it’s more like a reunion of long-lost sisters We have been in contact and talking on IM and the phone for endless hours and she’s just everything I dreamed about We are so alike….she’s also a Christian, we think alike about many things, like the same kind of music, we like writing and reading and kids…we are both in love with love…wow, it’s like we have never been separated from each other!
I am so thankful for this. She told me something funny about her last name (given by her foster parents): the social worker had her placed with the Shallenbergers because he thought it was funny how it rhymed with “hamburger”. So now that I’ve given you a hint, you should all know who my twin is. He obviously had a strong sense of humor And a good bit of imagination.
So do I. And this story proves it.
