|Jonathan in blue; Matthew in red|
I am officially ending this blog.
For more than five years - since they were nine months old -- I have used stories about Matthew and Jonathan to illustrate more universal issues involving identical twins.
Sometimes, I've simply focused on my little guys in blog posts. Other times, I have not mentioned Jonathan and Matthew at all.
But I believe the time has come to respect their privacy.
This blog has attracted more page views than I had ever imagined possible. That tells me people crave information about identical twins whether they are raising them; involved in their care or education; or are identical twins themselves.
For that reason, I am glad that I did this.
The lack of information about raising identical twins is the force that drove me to establish this blog in the first place. I hope I have helped someone along the way by making things a little clearer, a little less frightening, a little more exciting or even just a little more interesting.
Though I will create no new posts, this blog will remain.
So if you have any questions, please comment here and I will get back to you no matter how many years have passed.
Thank you so very much for reading, following and commenting.
I have learned much along the way from readers, interviewees, identical siblings, and people who are simply interested in those who share DNA. Our boys have grown tremendously since I started this blog and so have we. Good-byes have always been hard for me, but here is it:
Good-bye and thank you.
It's been loads and loads of fun.
Thank you so very much.
