AMAZING COINCIDENCES

TWIN BOYS, TWIN LIVES: THE STORIES OF IDENTICAL TWINS’ NEARLY IDENTICAL LIVES ARE OFTEN ASTONISHING, BUT PERHAPS NONE MORE SO THAN THOSE OF IDENTICAL TWINS BORN IN OHIO. THE TWIN BOYS WERE SEPARATED AT BIRTH, BEING ADOPTED BY DIFFERENT FAMILIES. UNKNOWN TO EACH OTHER, BOTH FAMILIES NAMED THE BOYS JAMES. AND HERE THE COINCIDENCES JUST BEGIN. BOTH OF THE BOYS GREW UP NOT KNOWING OF THE OTHER, YET BOTH SOUGHT LAW-ENFORCEMENT TRAINING, BOTH HAD ABILITIES IN MECHANICAL DRAWING AND CARPENTRY, AND EACH HAD MARRIED WOMEN NAMED LINDA. THEY BOTH HAD SONS WHOM ONE NAMED JAMES ALAN AND THE OTHER NAMED JAMES ALLAN. THE TWIN BROTHERS ALSO DIVORCED THEIR WIVES AND MARRIED OTHER WOMEN – BOTH NAMED BETTY. AND THEY BOTH OWNED DOGS WHICH THEY NAMED TOY. FORTY YEARS AFTER THEIR CHILDHOOD SEPARATION, THE TWO MEN WERE REUNITED TO SHARE THEIR AMAZINGLY SIMILAR LIVES.
