What’s in a name?
For people who have experienced a DNA surprise, a whole lot.
In this week's episode, Morgan shares his DNA surprise story as the child of an adoptee. He describes how he first found his biological grandmother before the days of the internet and later found his biological grandfather’s family with the help of commercial DNA testing.
He also explains why changing his name to that of his well-known paternal side made sense to him—even though it led to estrangement from his raised family.
Thanks to Morgan for sharing his story.
