Probable selves or just another cool twin story? “An unmarried immigrant woman gave birth to two boys, twins, who she put up for adoption shortly afterward. Later that August, the Springer family of Dayton, Ohio, brought their new adopted son home. They were informed that his twin brother had died. And while they felt badly for the boy, they were so glad to finally have their own child, the inquiry stopped there. In the meantime, almost 100 miles away in Lima, Ohio the Lewis family adopted a brand new baby boy. They too were told that the boy’s twin had died. The Lewis family discovered, quite by accident, that the “other half,” the twin to their son was still alive six years later. What was rather astonishing is that both of the families named the boys “James” or Jim, as they both became known as.”
