How would you feel if you learned that your biological father was a constant presence in your life, despite being raised under the belief that another man shared your DNA?
In this week’s episode, Shannon shares how she learned that her biological father was a longtime family friend who even taught her how to tie her shoes.
I spoke with Shannon just four months after her DNA surprise. She offers a fresh perspective on the immediate aftermath of a discovery, including what she’s doing to process and how she’s learning more about her newfound biological family.
Thank you for sharing your story, Shannon.
