Exciting news today as The DNA Guide for Adoptees is #1 for new release in Genetics on Amazon. I’m looking forward to the information and support falling into people’s hands whether their preference is paperback or Kindle.
The book covers a lot of ground and is divided into four sections:
Bringing Science and Research Together through Genetic Genealogy
What to Do After the DNA Testing is Done
DNA Tests and the Search for Health Information
There are special chapters sprinkled throughout the book that cover topics for adoptive parents, the DNA pattern of ‘high ROH’ (which I have covered in past blog posts), and how to find and work with a Certified Genetic Counselor. Although much of the information is US adoptee-centric, those born and adopted outside of the US will benefit from many sections.
I talked about the book which I coauthored with my friend Shannon Combs-Bennett on Laura Hercher’s podcast The Beagle Has Landed. I will be talking more about my work and the book in more depth on an episode of DNA Today coming out on June 7th.
I hope you enjoy reading The DNA Guide for Adoptees and share with your friends and family!
