Sharing Her Story

Jayne Berry’s adoptive parents let her know she was special.
As a child, her parents told her: “Most children are just given to their parents, but you were chosen to be our daughter.”

Jayne felt lucky to have the parents she had, but because she never wanted to hurt them, she waited to ask more about where she came from. Who was her biological mother and why she’d been put up for adoption?

After testing with 23andMe and connecting with a niece, she finally got answers, met three full brothers and one half brother and learned about her now deceased mother. Her story was featured on Lexington, Kentucky television station and the local paper.

We asked if we could share her story with our readers.

“I would be honored,” Jayne said. “My goal is to help those who are still searching.”
