A woman had twin boys
Unfortunately, she was unable to keep them, so she put them up for adoption.
She was able to find loving homes for both of them overseas, but it was many years since she had seen them.
Then, just before their 21st birthday she got two letters, one from Egypt, the other from Spain.
Each son had tracked down their biological mother and wanted to visit her.
She was overjoyed; she would finally see her identical twin sons! Jamal from Egypt, and Juan from Spain!
Just before they were to come to visit, though, the woman got another letter from Egypt.
Unfortunately due to unseen circumstances, her son from Egypt was unable to visit that year.
She still got to see her son from Spain, though.
So her husband tried to console her, saying “Once you’ve seen Juan, you’ve seen Jamal.”
