Teens on TikTok discover they’re actually twins

Ammon News - Elene Deisadze was scrolling on TikTok in 2022 when she had to do a double-take. There was a girl who looked just like her.

The European teen immediately reached out to Anna Panchulidze, who she believed to be her doppelgänger. The two had an instant connection.

But it turned out the pair had more than a bond — they had shared DNA.

After several months of getting to know each other online, the two discovered that they were adopted.

“I had a happy childhood, but now my entire past felt like a deception,” Anna told AFP, according to the Daily Mail.

Once they realized that they didn’t actually know their biological family, the girls decided to take a DNA test and learned that they weren’t doppelgängers — they’re identical twins.

“We became friends without suspecting we might be sisters, but both of us felt there was some special bond between us,” Elene told AFP.

And while the girls’ revelation might be shocking, it’s unfortunately more common and dark than either had expected.

The DNA test for Elene and Anna was arranged with the help of Georgian journalist Tamuna Museridze, who has been investigating a country-wide kidnapping scheme that appears to have taken place for decades between 1950 and 2006.

Museridze first uncovered the dibacle in 2016 when she found she had two birth certificates with different dates while she was clearing out her mother’s house after she died.

“We found out it was systemic, and we found out there are more than 100,000 children stolen in Georgia’s hospitals,” Museridze told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
