It depends on the country.

Tell the girls it’s like braces. Better it’s done when young and parents pay for it. There could have been a Japanese or Korean connection. They won’t be curious later and have to get a kit themselves.

So you are European.

The rest of our reports are finished.  I'm really glad I didn't pay full price for this.  I'm not sure why anyone does 23 and Me?  My friend did ancestry.com, and her results were detailed by country.  I did upload the data to Wegene...waiting for reports.  If ancestry.com runs a good sale, I think we'll do their test.

Child 3:
99.6% East Asian (99.3% Chinese, .3% Broadly East Asian)
.4% European (Broadly South European)

Mine:
92.1% Northwestern European (44.2% British & Irish, 35.3% French & German, 12.6% Broadly Northwestern European)
2.7% Southern European (1.1% Italian, 1.6% Broadly Southern European)
1.3% Eastern European
3.7% Broadly European
.1% East Asian
<.1% Sub-Saharan African

We have received 23 and me results for two of my girls.  Still waiting on mine and another of my girls.  Results are kind of disappointing. 

Child 1:
96.6% East Asian (95.3% Chinese, 1.3% Mongolian)
3.3% South East Asian
.1% European (Broadly South European)

Child 2:
100% East Asian (98% Chinese, 1.5% Korean, .4% Broadly East Asian)
<.1% Broadly East Asian and Native American

The kids were like, well duh, we're Chinese.  Haha.  I uploaded to wegene...haven't gotten reports yet.

I binge watched the first season on demand and really liked the transracial adoption narrative but the show as a whole was too negative and sad for me. I also liked how it addressed issues of masculinity and fatherhood. I didn’t find any of the female characters compelling.

I watched it in the beginning, then got sidetracked.  I've seen a few episodes recently.  I really liked the interaction with the adoption storyline as well.

Has anyone watched this series? I have been watching it on Netflix and find it interesting. The topics of adoption, inter racial adoption and the dynamics between the adopted sibling and the bio siblings is interesting to me. Also the whole story of finding the birth father and all this brings up is interesting to watch. I tried to get my kid, who is almost 14 to watch it but he isn't interested. Anyone else watch it?

I heard some sad stories of North Koreans trying to escape through China and ending up pregnant in China and unable to take the baby as they continued on. If my son ever tested part Japanese I would wonder about the Nanking massacre being a factor given the region where he was adopted from. I could never get him to spit. Many Koreans escaped into northern China during Japanese occupation.

We officially determined with ancestry kit my husband is not Native American, highly suspect family lore. I got if for his birthday mainly so I could put that legend away. We thought he was 50% Iberian but there were a few surprises as it is much less. His dad side was said to be a mess of things. If I can get over the spitting I might do it as it goes back farther than the 1800’s, what I can track through the census. Is there a test kit that just wants blood from a finger?

It said four to six weeks but it came in less than two weeks.
