Imagine spitting into a tube, sending off your DNA, and unknowingly turning your life upside down. For me and thousands of others, this is our reality.
I'm your host, Alexis Hourselt. In July of 2021, I discovered that I am an NPE - someone who has experienced a non-paternal event. In other words, my biological father isn't who I thought he was.
This podcast shares the journeys of people who were shocked by a DNA discovery, mostly through modern DNA testing. We're telling the stories of NPEs, adoptees, and donor-conceived people and their families.
This...is DNA Surprises.
Do you have a DNA Surprise that you'd like to share? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration is open for the inaugural DNA Surprise Retreat, May 4-7 in Tucson, AZ!
If you're an NPE, donor-conceived person, or adoptee who has experienced a DNA surprise, join us for four days of community and support!
