Learn How to Use DNA to Complete an Adoption Search

Richard helps  adoptees (and genealogists) understand their DNA testing options through his web site: All his information and advice are free. People interested in DNA testing order directly from the labs.

He also has a book: Finding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNA

DNA is also helping adoptees reunite with birth families. The Wall Street Journal reported  Richard’s successful adoption search in a front page article. Hetells the entire story, including a new ending based on the latest genetic genealogy tests, in his book.

Lost Daughter’s blogger Lynn Grubb wrote a wonderful review of it on the Lost Daughters blog.

There’s an entire section about his book with blogger reviews etc. that can be reached directly through this link:

About the Author

Musings of the Lame was started in 2005 primarily as a simple blog recording the feelings of a birthmother as she struggled to understand how the act of relinquishing her first newborn so to adoption in 1987 continued to be a major force in her life. Built from the knowledge gained in the adoption community, it records the search for her son and the adoption reunion as it happened. Since then, it has grown as an adoption forum encompassing the complexity of the adoption industry, the fight to free her sons adoption records and the need for Adoptee Rights, and a growing community of other birthmothers, adoptive parents and adopted persons who are able to see that so much what we want to believe about adoption is wrong.
