Since its black history month, I’m sharing my DNA results. Not because it only revealed my African ancestry but because it also reveals my non-African ancestry. 500 new cousins also share some versions of my DNA, according to ancestry.com. I connected with some via email. I’m very pleased about that. Afterall, aside from learning where in the world one comes from why would you not want to make connections.
Being adopted, I learned why one would not want to connect. I imagined numerous scenarios about my biological beginnings before I got my DNA results. None of them reflected the actual results of my DNA spit test.
What my DNA results confirmed for me – Why?
- Love the color green
- Adore to Irish / Gaelic music
- Love to hear bagpipes
- Crave Corned beef and Cabbage on March 17th
I’ll look forward to more connections but in the meantime, I will reflect on what I’ve learned so far.
