My Brother John

A little more than a year ago, I was contacted by a man, who believed that he might be our older brother. After chatting on Facebook and talking with him, praying about it and thinking about what I would hope someone would do if I were in his shoes, I agreed to take a DNA test via Here’s our story, which will be in the February 12, 2017, edition of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a column called Personal Journeys in the Living section:

    I read your story and was excited for you, John and your family. God is so incredibly amazing. Very moving!

      Thank you so much, Gary. Connecting with John and his family has been one of the greatest blessings and miracles of my life. We continue to find things we have in common. We are grateful for advances in DNA technology that made this beautiful connection possible.
