NPEs, DCPs, and adoptees aren’t the only people who experience DNA Surprises. Found family has them, too. This week, Dori shared her surprise at being contacted by a sibling she never knew existed.
Dori also shares her experience growing up with family secrets, especially her life being raised by a lesbian couple.
I’m excited to release this episode during pride month, because it demonstrates how far we’ve come in destigmstizing LGBTQI families. I look forward to the day when we see families for what they are - families, each with as much nuance as anyone else’s.
Thanks to Dori for sharing her story.
