This fifteen-year search included years without any apparent progress, but we never gave up.

Our connection through DNA has brought me and my family a gift that only someone with your talent could accomplish. Your knowledge of DNA and application of what I can only say is an amazing ability (gift) to sort through the labyrinth of what is called my family history has introduced me to a family I didn’t know I had; now, I have a history just like almost everyone else I know.

I grew up with the knowledge of only one full-blooded relative and a half-brother with no one to answer any of the many questions I had. You did all of this with the DNA results and several names given to a social worker during an intake interview in some 60 plus years ago.

I can only say what you did, in my opinion, was nothing short of a miracle. Two thoughts come to mind when I think of how this came about, “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.” Paulo Coelho ... and ... “1 Universe, 9 Planets, 204 Countries, 809 Islands, 7 Seas and I had the privilege to meet you.” Unknown.

A simple thank you seems to be such a small gesture for such an enormous gift. This is something my children are profoundly grateful for. My three grandchildren and generations to come will now have roots.I am eternally indebted to you.
