    Text - As soon as everyone opened their gift at the same time, my mom started freaking out. She told us how she didn't want us taking them because they had unsafe chemicals. We explained to her how there were actually no chemicals, but we could tell she was still flustered. Later she started trying to convince us that only one of us kids need to take it since we will all have the same results and to resell extra kits to save money Fast forward: Our parents have been fighting upstairs for the pas

    Text - TL;DR I bought everyone in my family AncestryDNA kit for Christmas. My mom started freaking. Now our parents are fighting and my dad might not be my dad. Update: Thank you so much for all the love and support. My sisters, brother and have not yet decided yet if we are going to take the test. No matter what the results are, we will still love each other, and our parents no matter what.

    Text - Update 2: CHRISTMAS ISN'T RUINED! My FU actually turned into a Christmas miracle. Turns out my sisters father passed away shortly after she was born. A good friend of my moms was able to help her through the darkest time in her life, and they went on to fall in love and create the rest of our family. They never told us because of how hard it was for my mom. Last night she was strong enough to share stories and photos with us for the first time, and it truly brought us even closer together

    Text - A guy found me on 23andme and it turned out we had 12.5% dna in common making us close cousins. But then I found out he was born in the fifties which makes cousinship impossible. turns out he's my half uncle. And in the process of figuring out how the hell he eluded the family, it turned out that the guy we thought was my great uncle was actually my uncle - my grandma hid the fact that her very younger brother was actually her kid. And he was this guy's brother. Those kinds of bombshells
