Welcome to Season 6 of DNA Surprises. We’re kicking off this season with a quadruple DNA surprise story as told by triplets.
Rikki, Julianne, and Kendall are donor-conceived triplets who were separated at birth. Rikki was raised by her biological mother and who she believed was her biological father. Jules and Kendall were raised together by their adoptive parents.
Rikki knew about her sisters but didn’t know she was donor-conceived until after her dad died. Meanwhile, Julianne and Kendall knew they were donor-conceived, but didn’t know about Rikki until they were older.
In this episode, they share how they connected with each other and built a relationship. Rikki discusses her determination to learn more about their donor and what happened as a result.
We also chat about how complicated all of this is - adoption, donor conception, and DNA surprises, and why it’s important to allow space for every individual to own their feelings.
Rikki, Jules, and Kendall share their story in depth on Season 1 of their podcast, Luke Who Is Your Father. Their next season shares other stories, including mine. You can find Luke Who Is Your Father on all streaming platforms.
Thank you to the Luke Who Is Your Father ladies for sharing your story.
