Imagine growing up not looking like the rest of your family, and having people make jokes like, “Where’d she come from?! She must be the milkman’s daughter.”
Dani Shapiro, best-selling author, and podcast host took an Ancestry DNA test at 54-years old and discovered that her family had been hiding a secret from her for her entire life.
But what would you do if you found out that your father, the father who had raised you, the father you adored, wasn’t your father at all? Would you act as though nothing had changed and go with your life, business as usual? Or would you start a podcast to help other people uncover their own family secrets?
