The yearning for information about family history and identity is at an all-time high.
More than 26 million people have taken at-home DNA tests. Of that number, thousands of people will experience a Non-Paternity Event (NPE). NPE is also an acronym for Not Parent Expected. Also referred to as Misattributed Paternity or Misattributed Parentage Experience (MPE).
The NPE experience can be traumatic. The shocking news of finding out a secret that your father is not your biological father can be overwhelming. The discovery has the power to cut the fabric of one’s identity. A sense of displacement, of being shattered and fragmented. A disorienting feeling that you were not who you thought you were.
Many seekers struggle and have internal conflicts about their identity, and I was no exception. Like so many others, I wanted to know the truth and needed help navigating such a complex process, and ENOUGH tells that story.
ENOUGH sheds light on the shock, undercurrents, and chaos that can arise during the search for answers.
By telling my story, I provide insight into the steps I have taken, the feelings I have experienced, the tools I have used to help me find my father - giving a voice and validation to those feeling lost and overwhelmed. I want to share hope and light with those on their journey to wholeness.
My mission is to inspire, empower and bring more light and love into our world.
