In cases of twin siblings, should the adoptive parents take the siblings together?

Asked by: Dellalicious
  • Yes, adoptive parents should never split up siblings.

    I feel that in all cases of adoption, not just in cases where children are twins, adoptive parents should do all that they can to adopt an entire group of siblings, allowing them to grow up together. In the case of twins, especially identical twins, they are like one person split into two, being biologically identical. It seems that splitting up siblings in this type of instance is especially unethical.

  • Yes, many twins are close to each other.

    Twin siblings can be very close to each other and being a twin and having a twin can be an important part of their identity. Adopted children already have more problems fitting in and finding a family and home without being separated from their siblings. Being together with their twin can help children to cope.

  • Can be hard to be a twin.

    Sometimes there is a lot of pressure on twins and competition to be the better twin, the prettier twin, the louder twin, their qualities are always compared and this can have a detrimental effect on the twins health. If they were raised individually as then there might be less pressure.
