DNA tests carried out on two women who believed they were twins have revealed that they are not related.
Vicki, a resident of Santa Maria del Paramo, Leon, had been looking for her twin sister for years, although her family had been told that she died the same day they were born in Leon Hospital. Meanwhile, Maria Jose, who lived near Valencia, found out when she was 18 that she was adopted and had been looking for her biological family ever since.
An article about stolen babies brought them together. Maria Jose saw Vicki’s photo in the newspaper saying she was looking for her missing sister and felt as if she was looking in the mirror.
The two met, and found they had the same smile, the same mannerisms, the same constitution, the same age and many other things in common. They began to talk every day on the phone and felt they were family.
However, DNA says differently, lab results confirmed they do not have the same blood.
The two women refuse to believe it and want the tests repeated by laboratories not linked to the National Association of Victims of Irregular Adoptions, where there are DNA samples of more than 2,000 people who have lost babies or believe they were stolen from their families.
