Twin sisters Amy Khvitia and Ano Sartania. 

GEORGIA, Jan 27: In a remarkable turn of events, a pair of identical twins, Amy Khvitia and Ano Sartania, who were tragically separated and sold as infants, have been joyously reunited after years of separation. Born in Georgia in 2002, the twins fell victim to a nefarious child adoption market linked to organized crime, leading to their separation and sale as part of an illegal adoption scheme. Shockingly, their mother, Aza, was deceived into believing that her children had perished.

The incredible reunion began when Amy, one of the twins, recognized her sister Ano at the age of 12 during an episode of Georgia’s Got Talent. Ano, seven years later, grew suspicious after a friend sent her a TikTok video featuring Amy, prompting her to notice the uncanny resemblance between them.

After being connected by a mutual friend on Facebook, the twins discovered the harrowing truth about their separation—a result of an underground Georgian child trafficking ring that operated from the early 1950s until 2005, selling infants into adoption.

Their reunion took place at an underground station in Tbilisi, with Amy expressing the surreal experience of looking at her sister, stating, “It was like looking in a mirror, the same face, same voice. I am her and she is me.” Ano added, “I don’t like hugs, but I hugged her.”

The adoptive parents of the twins, unaware of the illegal practices involved, shared that they had been unable to conceive and were offered adoption at Kirtskhi maternity hospital in Western Georgia.

To track down their birth mother, the twins utilized a Facebook page dedicated to reuniting lost children who had been victims of trafficking, eventually connecting with their sister and confirming their relationship through a DNA test. Aza, their mother, revealed that she fell into a coma after childbirth and was falsely informed of her children’s demise.

Child adoption trafficking believed to involve criminal gangs collaborating with corrupt hospital officials, diminished after 2005 when Georgia changed adoption laws and reinforced protections. In 2022, the government initiated an investigation into the scandal, citing challenges in obtaining information due to the age of maternity records and historical data loss.
