Emilie Falk and Lin Backman Unidentical twins separated from adoption reunited in Sweden.

This is a a story about two non-identical twins that are being separated due to the adoption since birth. Both of them are adopted by Swedish couple.
29 years has passed since their separation, they are not aware of the fact that both of them live just 40 kilometres away from each other. Until now.
Knowing the existence of her identical twins Lin Backman decided to search for her twins by going through several investigation. 

There are no actual documents that lead to the fact that both of Emilie and Lin are twins, When Backman's parents left the orphanage with her all those years ago, the taxi driver had turned around and asked them: "What about the other one, the sister?" and they jotted the girls' Indonesian names down on a piece of paper.
"They went through the adoption papers, but they didn't think we were very similar and there was a lot in the papers that didn't add up ... And there were no DNA tests back then," Falk said.
The two couples in the end wrote off the idea and eventually lost touch.
"But when I got married two years ago I started thinking about family and my adoption, and when I asked my mother she told me this story again, and I decided to look for Lin," Falk said.
She had a name and began searching through a network for Indonesian children adopted by Swedish families, and found her on Facebook.

According to a DNA test the pair had done two months after reuniting in January last year, and which they shared with AFP, there is a 99.98 percent chance of them being sisters.
They found they had a lot in common such as :
  • born on March 18, 1983 in Semarang
  • They lived only 40 kilometres apart in the very south of Sweden
  • they are both teachers
  • they got married on the same day only one year apart and even danced to the same wedding song: "You and Me" by Lifehouse.
Since then the two have kept in close touch, and have talked about going to Indonesia to search for their biological parents.
