Science Fiction Books/Can't remember the title of the short story


I read this short story decades ago, and I just can't remember the title or the author. The summery of the plot goes like this : An astronaut is returning from space after many years. Actually not the real person but his clone, since the real him died. The cone meets the parents but did had no idea that the parents were clones as well.

sorry,  never read this one.  the closest I can think of is Time for the Stars by Robert Heinlein.  An astronaut returns form space after many years.  He has barely aged, and his twin who remained on earth has aged tremendously.

Good luck finding your story.
