Separating twins and triplets in adoption (both domestic and international adoption) has been going on for years, I’ve written about it several times, and it’s a travesty to me. Right now there are several sets of separated twins growing up whose stories have been made public, so just think of how many there could be right now that are kept private, or who don’t know it yet, if they ever do. I looked back through my posts and can’t find that I talked about the first documentary done in 2010 on Mia and Alexandra meeting for the first time (Norwegian version), although I remember talking, and thinking deeply about it.
Red Thread Broken has an amazing post on the current documentary Twin Sisters, it’s a great response that I hope you will take the time to read. I couldn’t have done it the justice she has.
Below is the 2010 first meeting between Alexandra and Mia when they were about six, I think. It’s in two parts (combined is about 15 minutes). It has both Norwegian and English and subtitles, and is easy to follow, I’m still trying to decide which documentary I prefer.
