I found my real father

My mom never told me that my dad wasn’t my real father. Due to her remarried when I was born. I only found out when I did a DNA test here! OMG It was so heavy. I found his wife on FB. She had no idea I was born. It could’ve gone really bad but she was heartbroken that my real father never mentioned that he had a daughter at age 17. Anyways she is amazing and is welcomed me in with my real dad to get to know them. I spent a few days w/ them spring break 2021. My father and I are a lot a like. Had same eyes did the same things with our food. We even loved the same things. This was the best experience I will never forget it. I just wish it didn’t take 48 years to find the truth. I even found out I have 2 half sisters. My kids and I are looking forward to the future of our new family. If you’re wondering how my mother felt about this she said the guilt ate her up. She relieved that this secret is finally over. The father I called dad is also happy for me. I always knew I was little different from my brothers and sister. They also couldn’t believe what my mother did. Life is crazy, this would be a great movie! Cheers and you never know what or who you might find with this test. Just roll the dice and do it!

After 50 years I was united with my birth family

Thank you ancestry DNA I was given up for adoption by my birth mother who I met at age 21.I was given a name and a college that my said to be biological father attended and that was all the information that I had .I waited over 50 years to build The courage to find out about my biological father and his Family.. thanks to ancestry DNA I saw many matches of relatives including a first and second cousins we shared communications and confirmed that we were family and that was indeed my father. I was completely amazed and in tears to see so many family members over 500 or so for someone that never knew her biological father‘s family I am so thankful to God and ancestry DNA for making this miracle happen. I must say my father passed two years ago but I now share the love of all my aunts and uncles and so many cousins. I have beautiful pictures of the Reunion I would love to share with ancestry.
Thank you ancestry DNA for making this miracle possible Sandra Stanfield

Happy & sappy ,

A long time coming!

Recently I have had the fortune to have two members of Ancestry reach out to me. They were aware of DNA that had a high probability that would lead me on a path of discovery. Discovery, well that’s an understatement. It turns out that we are close relatives one being a first cousin & the other a niece. You see I’ve been an Ancestry member with the goal of identifying my biological father for several years & I hit a gold mine. Not only did I find out who my father was but also discovered a group of people that are my family.
With a few text messages & face time I realized that I was accepted with open arms & hearts . I’m a fan of the Ancestry TV show & I have enjoyed seeing people find their ancestors & the eye opening revelations and heart felt reactions . I was always hopeful that one day that it would be my turn them bang it happened. Thanks to this wonderful program it has great value, priceless.
