Adoptees Finding Their Birth Family

Finding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNAFinding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNA by Richard Hill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For children who were adopted and raised by parents who were not their own are faced with questions that need to be answered . Questions that center on identity , belonging and acceptance. In certain cases they are not even told they were adopted and the adoptee finds out through some medical fluke, or a elate spilling the beans . There seems to be a wall of conspiracy to Kerr the adoptee from finding the truth. Doctors, family and even friends know about it except the adoptee. Their search for the truth is further complicated by official documents that purposely contain misnormatiin. The adoptee has no rights to see their original birth certificate or adoption papers.

Richard Hill found out he was adopted in college when a new physician inadvertently let it slip. He never brought the issue up with his parents and he n ear would have guessed. When his dad was on his deathbed he brought up the subject of the adoption. He urged Richard to find his half brother . Thus began a great adventure if sleuthing around to first find his birth mother and then other half siblings. Richard tracks down his mother Jackie by doing some old fashioned detective work. He later tracks down his half brother.

Funding his dad was another issue. A lot false leads and lies . Thanks to DN A texting he found out who his dad was. He also located some siblings. Over all good book with great advice on how to use DNA testing to find relatives.
