  • Adoptee story for TV Production

    Family Tree DNA was contacted by a TV producer that would love to do an adoptee reunion made possible by DNA testing. The discovery would need to be fresh, i.e., separated siblings or an adoptee and birth parent who just found each other. A perfect situation might be one where they have talked but have not yet met in person because they live in different parts of the country. If they would agree to be on the show—and were accepted by the producers—they could receive all-expenses paid trips to LA to meet on the set. If this is your case, please contact [email protected]

    How exciting!! I hope someone is available and steps up to the plate!!
    This is a good opportunity to not only promote FTDNA, but also the trails and tribs of adoptees and/or parents seeking to unite.

      About 25 years ago I became involved in a TIME magazine cover story on adoption.Time did an in depth interview and took many pictures. My birth mother and a half brother and half sister were also involved in the interviews. What a mess. They did not get the story straight and left out my brother from the magazine photos. Some of what they said in the story did not even make sense. Ah well. You and your life will be made public in ways you never imagined and have no control over.
      I am not saying you should not take part in the TV story and FTDNA advertising. However you need to be prepared for your post show involvement with many folks you do not know having the details of your once private life.
      It would be good advertising for adoption issues and DNA if done right.

        That sounds like an awesome opportunity for a lucky family that was reunited! I'm hoping to have such an experience someday (sooner than later).

        My father was on Unsolved Mysteries about 15 years ago looking for his younger twin brothers that were released into adoption. Nothing turned up, so we're hoping this DNA game may yield a discovery.

          adoptee story

          Well we are waiting for results of Family Finder DNA test with hope that my almost 90 year old mother will find ANY family member. She was adopted at 8 days old. I have been searching for 40 years and finally found a woman who's aunt had the same name/birth year as my mothers' birth mother. Fingers crossed we match!! I've been in contact with this "might-be" cousin & would like to be related.

            Did your family ever find out anything about the twins?
