In this week's episode, Charlotte shares her journey as both an adoptee and NPE. Charlotte always knew she was adopted. Her parents were always open with her and she never wanted to seek out her birth parents. After taking a 23&Me test to learn her health history, she was surprised to realize that it also connected her with DNA matches.
She shares how she found her birth parents, how this process affected her relationship with her raised parents, and what she's learned about her family and herself throughout this process.
Thanks to Charlotte for sharing her story.
