Ashley’s DNA Surprise
Play • 1 hr 6 min

Welcome to Season 3 of DNA Surprises. In the season premier, Ashley shares her double NPE journey. 

First, a content warning: due to the circumstances of Ashley’s conception, there is a lengthy discussion of rape and sexual assault. There are also mentions of childhood sexual abuse. If you or anyone you know are a victim of rape or sexual abuse, please call:

National Sexual Assault Hotline

1-800-656-4673

Ashley took her DNA test for health reasons, and was completely blindsided when she learned her raised father is not her bio dad. In this episode, she shares how she is processing two different versions of how she was conceived. Her mother says that she was raped - her father says it was a night of passion. She also shares how her discovery has affected her immediate family.

I also want to note that these conversations are difficult, especially in the DNA surprise community. 

Thank you for sharing your story, Ashley.
