This book is the result of a collection of edited papers from conferences on the subject of siblings.

"This paper is based upon a Mother-Infant(s) observation that I undertook as part of my clinical training. I observed the 'good enough' development of twin girls in their family setting for the first 2 years of their lives. The twins were dizygotic and following a difficult labor were initially separated at birth. The paper illustrates how the parents coped with over-whelming emotions by each 'appropriating' a twin for themselves, and cites the projections and over-compensations that they attributed to their infants in the process. I contemplate the idea of symbiotic merger in the relationship between the twins and in fantasy in the parental minds. I highlight the enactment of various twinning scenarios between the parents (and encompassing the observer) and cite the importance of the observation in helping the mother to scaffold the individual developments of her two daughters in her own mind." --From the introduction of the first Chapter by Toby Etterley
