Raised as an only child, Shelly's mom and dad passed away when she was in her early 20s. In spring 2021, at age 35, she was ready to find children she had been told her dad had before she was born but didn't raise. What she found out is that her dad wasn't her biological father, half of her ethnic heritage was incorrect, and she was not an only child. As a journalist, she has written about her experiences, and is learning how to balance being an NPE, a storyteller, and a mom in the healthiest way possible.
