Identical twins Harry and Oliver Machin are both adorable, but not even their mother feared they were not equally lovable. Charlene Machin admits she struggled at first to love Harry as much as Oliver — because Harry was born with only half a face: His left eye, ear and nostril never developed. Holding Harry for the first time, she says, she felt only terror and grief, wondering, "How could I possibly love this little boy when he looked like this?" Finally, when the twins were 18-months old, she felt love surge in while defending Harry from gawkers. Now she feels the same as Oliver, who recently declared, "He's my brother. It doesn't matter what he looks like." [Source]
