Ancestry kit for Seth so he can connect with his heritage

Posted Dec 4, 2023
Seth knows very little about his biological father, except that he was born in another country. Now that he is older, he longs to connect with his heritage and learn more about the culture his father comes from. A 23 and Me DNA kit will be the perfect gift to let Seth know who he is and where he comes from.

Seth is 18 years old and lives in GA

Seth is the very definition of courage. After entering the foster system at 14 years old, he bounced from group home to group home. He often ran away from placements due to poor treatment, seeking a better life for himself as a homeless teen. He resorted to drugs as a coping mechanism and sought any escape from the significant pain and trauma he had endured throughout his childhood. After being placed with a foster family for the first time, Seth slowly began to heal, recovering from his addiction, learning to trust others, and catching up on years of missed education. Seth graduated from high school a year early, remains in a safe and stable home that loves him dearly, and is transitioning to adulthood beautifully despite all he has been through. He is an overcomer.
