Good morning! Happy new year to everyone listening. I am freaking out guys and I need help. There’s things from my past that I never thought would ever resurfaced. So my son in law gave my daughter a DNA test kit thingy for her Christmas. I thought nothing of it at 1st until she started talking about all the distant relatives from different places & countries she hopes to get connected with. Quick backstory my wife was adopted & we know very little of her heritage. I can see why this is something my wife & daughter are both excited for. Well, I was young and dumb when I was in college. I had a buddy who told me about these clinics where you can donate your little swimmers, and back then I didn’t think anything. I went a few times to make a quick dollar. I wasn’t thinking!! I never shared this with my wife or anyone really. Never in 1,000 years would I think this would come back to haunt me. I feel shame & embarrassment. I don’t know how to bring this up. I wish I could go back in time. Honestly I’m very scared of how my family is going to react & think of me after this. What do I do?(email your situation to
