I found my father

Since a young child I always wondered who I looked like, I didnt look like my mums side and only had photos of my father. After to signing up to Genes Reunited I had a message from a woman explaining that she had been trying to find her father, but that she was married to a man who fit the description of my dad, anyway I now have a really good relationship with my dad. I would advice people to try it, but not to get too enthusiastic as sometimes people dont always end up with happy endings.
