...after a lifetime of living with a yearning void with all its associated feelings - I have only recently found you so am looking forward to discovering more, and learning about the experiences of others and how they echo my own."

"I was told by a shamanic sort that I had been with a male twin in utero, and I felt a strong resonance with that information. My life has been full of trauma and struggle. In researching this on the internet, I came across Althea's writings. She asked me to write my story, which is under the pseudonym 'Dondee' in the book, A Silent Cry. I wrote the story 7 years ago and am happy to report that much progress has been made. I did several years of trauma focused therapy, using the modality EMDR. At some point, this allowed me to consider the possiblility of going back to college. At the age of 59 I started an undergraduate degree at Naropa University in Peace Studies, with a minor in Media. I will continue for a master's in ecopsychology. Just the information, and the validation that Althea's writings and her book gave me was of tremendous benefit. I'm so grateful to have this piece of my personal puzzle."

"I came across the Womb Twin website recently via the Lone Twin Network website. I am a womb twin survivor and a member of the LTN and now Womb Twin. I lost my twin brother aged 36 hours old in 1944. I did a lot of research around twin bereavement for a BA degree in 1993 because my twin loss affected my life. The information I found on the Womb Twin website was transforming for me. It answered a lot of questions I had about my emotional life. I also realised that I had never said 'goodbye' to my brother. I found his grave in my local cemetery four years ago when my father died and I decided to place his ashes in my brother's grave. I am a Christian and I was able to say 'goodbye' to my brother and ask God for release of my emotional confusion that was explained to me in the book on womb twin healing. I look forward to becoming more acquainted with what I call my authentic self. I am a counsellor and would like to work in this area as I know from my own experience that few counsellors understand the special nature of twin loss, and especially womb twin loss. I should like to do more research into this fascinating study, and to hopefully help others who struggle with the loss of their twin."

"I first came across Womb Twin through my friend. The characteristics described on the website explains why my daughter is acting the way she is. I had my first sonogram two weeks into my pregnancy. It was then that I discovered that I was having twins. Then at two months I had another scan. By then, I had lost one of my twins. It was strange as there were no indications that I had lost one at all. I didn't think much of it or that it would effect my daughter. She is now 13 and I always thought she acted different from the rest of my children. Thanks to all the useful information on the Womb Twin website, I can understand her better and be prepared should she develop any problems in the future."
