On Father’s Day, NBC’s Dateline aired a full segment about what happened to one family as a result of DNA testing. And it’s not at all what they expected.
A woman tested her DNA, but the family she found was not the family she was looking for.
“I knew everybody, right???”
“She’s just been waiting for us all these years….”
“A moment 50 years in the making…”
“It was a gaping hole…”
Put another way, by Bennett Greenspan, CEO, Family Tree DNA, “History may get righted.”
“DNA is like a history book written into your cells and only now in the beginning of the 21st century are we learning how to read the book.” – Bennett Greenspan
“It was the middle of the night. He told her he found me. I can hear her crying…”
“He couldn’t hardly talk…”
“We watched pain turn into joy.”
Poverty and prejudice is evil. In all of its incantations.
Two families about to become one.
