These are amazing stories of our NPE journeys
As I listen to the stories I find myself nodding in agreement and even talking to my phone agreeing with the stories that these people are telling. A lot of them are stories of my life. Emotions I’ve felt, the way my family responded ... it’s amazing to see all of the similar emotions and actions that are in all these different families... even across country lines, across ethnic lines, across economics lines...
I have enjoyed these stories so much. I find myself nodding my head at so many similarities to other NPE’s when hearing them.
My daughter gave me Ancestry December 2018 as a gift because I told her that’s what I wanted. My results came in 2/1/2019 and at the top of my matches listed a man’s name I didn’t know.
It stated he was my Father. The relationship was parent/child.
I was so confused & distraught! My ethnicity was also not what I was told. I am 34% Scottish & 15% Irish & no German like I was told my entire life.
I was 53 at that time & raised by a different man.
Currently I have met & developed a beautiful
Father/Daughter relationship with this man that I look just like!
I have also developed a great relationship with my new aunt & numerous cousins that I look just like. The sad part of this is my family of origin is not in my life & I have a new 1/2 brother I haven’t met. This discovery will change your life forever & nothing or nobody can prepare you for that.
I’m an NPE, and this show is a lifeline ❤️
I found out via an Ancestry.com test in 2018, and this show makes me feel like I’m not alone. Thank you, Lily, and all of your amazing and brave guests who share their stories. This isn’t something that even my closest friends and family understand - but you guys do ❤️
