Are you really who you think you are?
DNA is a wonderful thing and tens of thousands of DNA heritage kits have been sold. Most confirmed and helped the purchaser(s) identify and confirm their family origins. But a small percentage have produced surprises. I have read dozens of stories about DNA surprises.
A current story at https://bit.ly/347gotT tells of one such incident where a 29-year-old woman discovered she was not related to the man she assumed was her father and also that she had no Italian heritage, unlike what she had been told all her life. She believes there was a mix-up at the hospital where she was born.
That certainly is possible. Other stories I have heard often revolve around stories of the person’s DNA matching that of the fertility doctor who assisted a formerly childless couple and, of course, many stories of marital infidelity, often involving “one night stands.”
How does this affect the person who had their DNA tested? The results vary widely but it rarely is “welcome news.” These stories often remind me of the old sayings about skeletons hiding in a family closet.
Is your heritage REALLY what you think it is? A DNA test will tell you the truth. You might want to order a DNA test kit today.
Then again, maybe you don’t really want to know.
