Hits close to home

Love the show. My parent was adopted. While searching for her parentage, I discovered that I was an NPE. It’s been a DNA rabbit hoke of secrets. The tips and tricks have helped uncover so much, and the stories help process the discoveries.

I am an NPE and enjoy this podcast

Julie understands the emotions that come with DNA discoveries. I feel honored that she allowed me to share a part of my story on the show. I thank her for her work with this podcast and with her work as a genetic genealogist, as it is SO very needed. Thank you Julie!

Much Support,

NPE Alicia “notparentexpected”
