Welcome to Season 5 of DNA Surprises. In the first episode of the season, Christa shares her NPE story.
Christa always knew that something wasn’t quite right because she looked different from her family.
When she got the results of her 23&Me test, she learned that her biological father wasn’t who she expected, and neither was her ethnicity. Christa talks about how she’s navigated building relationships with her newfound family and connecting to her Moroccan Jewish heritage. She also discusses the challenges she faces because her mother died shortly after her DNA surprise.
Thanks to Christa for sharing her story.
