And there’s a half sister. Connecting with her is next on his list. We’ve also figured out who my husband’s biological father is, and we’ve found photos of him, too. Gene is going to wait until after the first of the year to reach out to his paternal side.

All of this has been a lot to take in. There’s a line from a song by The Chicks that states, “Who do we become, without knowing where we started from?” Thanks to the magic of DNA, my husband’s story is finally being told to him. He’s finally able to see faces that look like his. He’s finally able to fill in some gaps and understand the biological links that will eventually make him feel whole.

And for those of us who are watching the saga unfold, we couldn’t be happier for him. Fifty-nine years is a long time to wait to meet your family.
