Wisconsin woman tracks down birth father after years of searching

[anvplayer video=”5181464″ station=”998132″]

Melissa Kelly of Wisconsin grew up in a large family with a stepfather who raised her as his own.

As she got older, she got more curious about her birth father, and started to ask her mom some questions.

While mom was upfront and honest, she had the spelling of the last name and the pronunciation wrong.

Fourteen years of wonder and dead ends with multiple DNA tests led to nothing.

After using a 23 and Me DNA kit, she finally matched with a cousin several years later. That eventually led her to her birth father.
