Ask Amy: In-law might bring a stowaway virus on her visit
Dear Amy: Like so many others, I found out about a half-sister after a relative did their DNA profile.
We’ve met and she is very nice.
I was 9 when my mother took a six-month “business trip.”
I still remember this time. Abandoned and scared feelings were brushed off by the family members I was living with. I’m 66 years old, and those feelings persist to this day.
Be careful with those tests. It changed the way I see myself and family.

Dear Been There: I’m highlighting these DNA discovery stories so readers can see the variety of experiences people have when confronted with this news.
