A poor couple gave birth to a set of twins. They were so poor that they had to give the babies up for adoption, to ensure that they could lead good lives with people who could care for them.
One brother was adopted by a family from Mexico, and they named him Juan.
The other brother was adopted by a family from India, and they named him Ammal.
20 years passed.
One day, the birth mother received a letter and a picture from her son Juan. She was so happy to read his words and see his picture. She excitedly showed them to her husband when he came home. They were very happy.
Then she sighed sadly. Questioned by her husband, she said, "I only wish Ammal had sent a picture too. I'd love to see what he looks like." Her husband looked at her and said, "dear, they're twins. If you've seen Juan you've seen Ammal."
