In this day and age, genetic testing and genetic geneology are really making a difference to some folks.
My wife’s best friend was adopted at birth, 61 years ago. Her adoptive Mom and Dad have passed; she thought she was all alone. A couple years back, she submitted one of those genetic geneology tests. She’s always searched for her birth family, but her records were sealed by the courts. Last night, she learned she had two brothers and a sister! She said it was like waking up on Christmas morning and finding the world’s best present under the tree!
