  • My brief story

    I was adopted and have since found/met both of my birth parents. I was given family names, some country origins, religion information etc

    Once I compared my mtDNA results with what was shared with me I wasn't surprised - my test confirmed everything 100% and then some.

    I just wish my birth parents would test as well but oh well....

    Ronda, I am curious as I am also an adoptee, how did you find your birth parents? I have very little information about my birth family. Supposedly Jones is the surname of my birth mother....makes things a bit difficult!

      I lucked out as it were. I was adopted out of Delaware and Delaware allows Adult Adoptees to request their Original Birth Certificate without identifying information.

      The birth mother is allowed 30 days after the request is received to say yes/no. I was sent my original birth certificate with my birth name, my birth mother's name etc. I found her nearly 2 yrs later on a message board and then found out my birth father's name.

      I got to meet him and my extended family. It was a wonderful experience. My father's family is of Sephardic Jewish descent and my birth mother's family is of Ashkenazi/Sephardic descent.

      You will want to start with the state where you were adopted; they may have resources for adult adoptees like Delaware.

        I'm very happy for you. So lucky to have Delaware's intelligent laws. In michigan, I got my non-ID and boy, did they mean it There are tantalizing hints, a 2 year window for my mother's birthday. Her mother dying 2 months after she was born and her father dying sometime later so that she was raised by her mother's sister. But... I haven't found anything in the census yet...

        Anyway, enough about me, let's celebrate your success! WOOOHOOO!
