A woman had twins but had to give them up for adoption. Later in life they each separately found her, first Amal, who had been adopted by an Islamic family in Indonesia, and then Juan, who had gone to a family in Spain. Juan found her and her husband first on Facebook, though. They looked at his photos on his Facebook page with amazement. Later, though, when Amal friended her, she called out to her husband "Come see!" but he declined. "Why?" she asked.

"Because," he replied, "they're twins -- and when you've seen Juan you've seen Amal."
My strength is as the strength of eight --
My heart is nearly pure.
