Default Thinking about DNA ancestry test?

Don't do it. Trust me. Two things.

One. Anyone who uses your DNA for test/research makes tons of money. You don't.

Two. You may not be who you think you are. It'll shock you.

My twin brother did those DNA ancestry test. What affects my brother affects me alike. We found out that our dad is not our biological father. What made it rough is that two of my older sisters had dad as a biological father.

We all have the same mom but who's our father ?? How did we come into this family?

Needless to tell you, I am shocked and shaken.

That's a shocker for sure Celery. I assume neither of your parents is still alive to ask.

My older sister paid to have the DNA test, I figured we shared the same biological parents so I didn't bother to test my DNA separately. Based on your experience, that might not be a correct assumption on my part. However, I'm not curious enough to spend the money to find out.

Yes, both my parents are deceased. They took their secrets to their graves.

That shit made me wonder WTF is going on with mom.

I think I have it figured it out and my brother and sister agreed. It's funny how when faced with this revelation you remembered some things in your childhood. I remembered Sue and Lyle, my parents' best friends who's always there for us. They were childless and my mom, being graceful, bore us for them.

That begs a question, why didn't we live with them as a family?

It's a certainty now. My brother dug up a VCR tape that was transferred from the reels. It's of us as kids and at one scene on Xmas Lyle and Sue was there.

My niece remarked that I look like Lyle.
