DNA SURPRISE?

We support people impacted by DNA surprises and misattributed parentage experiences (MPE) which can occur due to an adoption, assisted conception, or those conceived from a non-paternal event (NPE) as well as those searching for genetic family and promote understanding of the complex intersection of genetic information, identity, and family dynamics. 

ADVOCACY

We work with regulating and advisory bodies and organizations, educate policy makers, and propose legislation to promote our genetic identity rights.

We are currently working on broad-based fertility fraud in six states and plan to introduce bills in two more states next year.
