Kids don’t always have the most sound logic. Sometimes they just plain make things up. And what is so cute about it is that they often actually believe the stories they tell.
Take 4-year-olds Jia Sarnicola and Zuri Copeland. The two have been best friends since meeting in school, and despite having no familial relation to each other, the pair believe that they are not just sisters, but twins.
It all started when Jia and Zuri, whose June birthdays are two days apart, decided to have a joint birthday party. Ever since the celebration, the girls have concluded that because they shared a birthday, they must be twins.

“They tell everyone they are twins,” Zuri’s 23-year-old sister, Victoria Williams, told BuzzFeed News. “They are convinced they are each other’s siblings.”
When another kid told the girls that there was no way they could be twins because they didn’t even have the same color skin, the girls told Victoria, “We have the same birthday and we share the same soul.”
That sounds like a pretty convincing argument to us!
Even though the BFFs are not actually twins in the strict sense of the word, Jia’s mom, Ashley Sarnicola, says they share a lot in common.
“[They have] the same vibrant energy, intelligence, heart to take care of others, and both [are] extremely vocal about their needs,” she told BuzzFeed News. “They love to dance and sing.”

People on Twitter think these two adorable little girls’ declaration made a pretty great statement about how kids perceive differences—and that adults could learn a lesson from these preschoolers.
“This is a prime example that kids don’t care about skin color until society or someone tells them to,” read one comment.

“More reason we’re advised to be as children to have the right mindset towards life generally!” agreed another.
We’re so glad that these twins—in spirit—found each other!
