Is there truth to the bond between twins?

Researchers seeking the answer to that question would do well to visit Limestone College as no less than seven sets of twins were enrolled during the 2009-2010 academic year.

Unlike single-born children, most twins seem to share a unique connection that is deep and self-sustaining. "The twin bond is important since it's a relationship that really started in utero," says Eileen Pearlman, a licensed marriage, family, and child therapist who lectures on multiple birth issues and is the author of Raising Twins: What Parents Want to Know (And What Twins Want to Tell Them). "Even in the womb, there was a lot of working together sharing a very small space."
