How to query document to return parent and child result

Hi All,

I have created some parent and child documents :

curl -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/twitter/author/1 -d'
curl -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/twitter/author/2 -d'

curl -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/twitter/tweet/1?parent=1 -d'
curl -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/twitter/tweet/2?parent=2 -d'

with the mapping as well. However there is a case whereby i need to query
the parent and child with the result return with both parent and child
information. I would like to know could i
achieve that in a single query or i need to do 2 query each for parent and
