Twins separated at birth?

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Twinsters is a Kickstarter project by a pair of twenty-five-year-old women who just discovered they might be identical twins.

Here's their story: In February, Samantha, an American actor living in Los Angeles, received a Facebook message from Anaïs, a French fashion design student living in London. Anaïs' friends had seen a YouTube video featuring Samantha. They were immediately blown away by the identical appearance of Samantha and Anaïs. After a few Google stalking sessions, Anaïs and her friends discovered that both girls were born on November 19, 1987 and adopted shortly afterward. Anaïs knew immediately that it was possible for Samantha to be her biological twin sister and reached out to her through Facebook.

Now they're raising funds on Kickstarter to meet each other, film a documentary about their experience, and test their DNA to see if they are twins. Fascinating, right?!

P.S. People who only look like twins.
