After reunion, adopted twin sisters discover 12 more siblings


STOCKHOLM (AFP) - A set of twins separated at birth in Indonesia when they were put up for adoption and who found each other this year in Sweden have discovered they have another 12 siblings, the two said on Monday.

"We spoke to our biological mother this spring on Skype. She is around 65 years old. We have 11 brothers and sisters in Indonesia and one brother who was put up for adoption," Ms Emelie Falck, 29, told AFP.

"My biological mother said that my 14-month-old son was her 22nd grandchild," added her twin sister Lin Backlund.

The twins found each other earlier this year in Sweden, living in two nearby towns.
