In this episode, we are delving into why adoptees search for birth family. I explain my reasons for genetic testing, why I wanted to search, and the importance of taking the time to prepare yourself before searching. This episode also includes a little behind the scenes of my recent HuffPo article, "My Half Siblings Found Me on 23andMe. I Wasn't Prepared for What Happened Next."
