As an adoptee, I met my birth mother shortly before I turned 21 in 1988. She would never reveal the identity of my birth father and when she died just 4 1/2 years after we met, I thought that information was lost forever. I initially researched my DNA through Ancestry because I had reason to believe the adoption agency that placed me, reunited me with the wrong family. I knew my mother's sister had used it and if we were a match, then I knew my maternal line was intact (and it was). I bought this test to confirm the identity of my birth father after finding him on Ancestry through familial DNA matches. I was able to meet my father and brothers on October 21, 2016 where we collected the DNA for Identigene. After almost 50 years, the test proved 99.99% positive that he is my biological father and I received the results on what would have been my mother's 68th birthday. I now have my father and three brothers and an entire new family. Thank you!
