This session will discuss the practical realities, excitement, and pain of researching a “new” family. We will look at the invaluable information that can be revealed to adopted people through DNA testing. Reunions may not go as well as expected, so some adopted people can find a lot of satisfaction in finding other relatives or constructing an ancestral tree, all of which can help with the impact on identity and personal narratives. Penny will reflect briefly on her own adoption story and discuss the variety of ethical dilemmas that can arise.
