This podcast is not just a heartfelt collection of stories for the NPE/adoption/donor conceived community. It’s also an awesome tool for learning about help that is available for those on their journey to figure out their family puzzles. Eve’s compassion come through in each episode.

I’m not alone

This podcast helps me, as an NPE, to see that others are in similar situations. Although there are sometimes major differences in our stories, our beliefs, and our experiences it brings people together and helps with understanding who we are.

Amazing Podcast!

Eve has such a heart for the NPE community. She is a wonderful advocate for those that are searching to find their truth. I have had the opportunity to be a guest on two of her podcast episodes. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone that has an interest in genealogy. Especially to those that find themselves searching to find their truth after spitting in a tube. Thank you Eve for your passion and commitment to the NPE community.
