Given the intense nature of twin and multiple bonds, the death of a twin or  multiple, whether at birth or later, is an incomparable loss. Surviving  multiples talk about the never-ending – and impossible – search for someone close enough to replace the missing sibling. It is a sense of loss that for some will never go away. Grieving multiples speak of it being like a jigsaw where there is always a piece missing.

If you have lost your twin or multiple sibling please contact The Lone Twin Network, all members are surviving twins and have had that unique understanding of what it means to lose part of yourself when your twin dies. 

If you are a parent who has lost one or more of your multiples, you may want to look at the resources and support available from our Bereavement Support Group.
