Our guest this round is Michelle Tullier, who discovered she is an NPE after taking a DNA test for fun that the man she thought was her bio dad was not. In fact, she had known her bio dad her entire life. Michelle realized her mother was closer to a family friend than she first knew. Michelle reconnected with her half siblings that she knew as kids.
“I had some kind of connection with him. Now I understand why. He would look at me in a certain way. Didn’t bother me. It was an intense way. Now I understand why,” Michelle says of her bio dad.
