About those Twins

One day, a married couple bore twin sons.  They couldn't afford to keep them, however, so they put them up for adoption.  One of the boys went to a Spanish family and was named Juan.  The other son went to an Egyptian family and was named Amal.

Some years later, Juan became curious about his real parents. After researching and finally locating them, he sent them a nice letter and a picture of himself.  Upon receiving the picture, the original mother said "I'm so glad that he's happy.  And what a wonderful picture.  I wish we had a picture of Amal.  I wonder what he looks like."

And her husband turned to her and said, "I wouldn't worry about it.  When you've seen Juan, you've seen Amal."

(If you don't get it, just think about it for a little while...)
