    I dont understand why this is such a big deal. Unless your stepdad was a jerk. But if he took care of you why be so sentimental about it?

      I believe you said you were coptic egyptian. You might know this by now, but coptics are actually the most native egyptian people there is. They were the earliest peoples we have to have been there, and despite foreign invasions, still are alive today to be the rightful earliest trace of egyptian ancestry we have.

        Your truth is your right to know. Your mother has let you down, even worse by not admitting her failures to you. It is clear you have challenged your mother's power over you and she cannot admit the truth to you. Your truth brings down your mother's lies; it is very hurtful when your mother can try to deflect her lies. There is clearly something she does not want to face or own up to; she would rather see you in pain. You are a genuine and amazing woman, you need to find a way to heal the hurt and pain you feel. Find out your truth, and remember; who you really are is always in your heart.

              Your mom and mine are very alike... you don't have to put up with her lies! You weren't attacking her and you do have the right to know, because without him you would have not existed, half of you physically came from him! You keep going strong because your effort is between you and you, no one else has the right to stop you from what you decide to do!

              I have been told by one of my half brothers on my dad's side the story of my parents, and why he doesn't believe he's my half brother. I am going to also take a DNA test and see where I come from, and I want to meet my biological dad if at all possible!

                  A couple months ago my sister and I decided to take a DNA test. Turns out we are half sisters. My other sister decided to take the same test and she’s my half sister also. My 2 sisters are full sisters. I’m the only one with a different dad.
                  It’s hard knowing that the man you thought was your bio dad isn’t. He passed away when I was 11. I didn’t know him that well but I was so heartbroken. My mom is still convinced that the results are “incorrect”. I’m only 16. I just want to know who my bio dad is.

                    I’ve already spoken to my mom twice. Still no answer. My mom lies. I began to realize her unpredictable behavior over the past few years. I’m exhausted of these lies. Getting the tables turned on me to look like the bad guy. Just because i want to know who my dad is. Do I look like him? Do I get my curly hair from him? Does he have any family history of health problems? Does he even know I exist? There’s so much to ask.

                    Its true you don't need him... im considering having a sperm dona child... if I do that, I wont even know who the father is... blood does not change the soul you have, only the people around can do that... but your mum should be honest with you... if she had an affair you have the right to know the truth... so that you can judge for yourself how you take this knews

                      They did that to me too dear. I was told my dad was my biological father at 12 years old. Dont worry about it: love yourself and God and you will be happy.

                        Your story is much more intense then mine but we're kinda in the same boat.

                        I was raised believing I was German and polish. Today at school we went on a site that shows you all your school ID legal information, on my ethnicity section I was labled as this, "white(European, Middle Eastern, Northern African)".
                        This confused me so much and it made me question my parents on what was going on. I know I'm not adopted, I know they're my real parents, but why am I labled as this?
                        And a girl who checked hers was only labled as European so I know it's not migration from Africa.

                        I had wanted to take a 23&me test before this just because I was curious as to what I fully was. I heard that because of immigration there are no full Germans so I got interested. I still haven't taken one yet but my grandmother and mom have talked about it for a Christmas present.

                        You and I have many similar facial features, so that immediately makes me think I have Egyptian blood in me. Maybe not slot due to my blonde hair and blue eyes but still it counts.

                        Boy is this a hard and confusing thing.

                            This newly found information is a blessing! How great is it to become closer to your heritage where you had no intel before. Turn this circumstance around and look at the positives here ❤️

                              Heart rending. I discovered the same in my forties, though not through a DNA test. I totally understand the confusion which for me is ongoing after several years. Just hearing a few words from someone or reading a few words can turn life upside down. The worst is the feeling of lack of control, as though thoughts and emotions have been hijacked. Coming to terms will be a long work in progress. Sometimes life is hard, brutal, but one thing I have found through this is that the labels we give to ourselves and others, especially those of nationality and race matter less and valuing myself and others as individuals is more real and positive. Now you are not who you thought you were, but even though you have Egyptian genes you don't feel Egyptian, so it's like your roots have been pulled up. But with this new knowledge you are still you. What matters is YOU as an individual, not you as half Egyptian or part this or that. And the same is true of everyone. I really hope that you get more information about your father. Be strong. You seem like a lovely, genuine person and will get through this.

                                I hope you find your real father and that he has family for you to bond with. You deserve the truth and you deserve to be happy. Please be happy, you are way too beautiful a person to waste on sadness. rock those Egyptian genes!

                                      Mothers used to take these transgressions and secrets to the grave. Getting to be less so now.
                                      And sticking some man with the burden of a child not their own with them not knowing about it. How is this not a crime to the man?

                                            These tests are not very accurate. Some things of the things I know I am are not on my profile but they put them on my sons. My son gets them from me. They are in my family’s Dna too. Never put one hundred percent into these things. Jews are mixed. He very well could be Jewish.

                                              I'm so sorry you're going through this. She's upset you got her caught up but it's so sad and wrong that she kept this from you and led you to believe a shitty person was your father. You do whatever you need to get the answers you want. Just remember to go into it knowing that you've come this far without whoever you've been missing and you will and can survive without them if they don't want a part in your life. On the other hand, maybe he didn't know about you. Maybe he does want to know you. either way, it doesn't make you any less of who you are. i wish I could give you a hug girl. ps. I'm waiting on my test. I don't know who my biological father is either.

                                                It's irresponsible and selfish for parents to lie about these kinda of things whatever their circumstances are tell the truth to your children.

                                                My cousins father is not actually their biological father I just learned that info from my mom when I was working already and apprently my cousins still don't know the truth. It's awkward seeing them now, and I'm wondering if my aunt will ever tell them the truth cuz I think they deserve to know the real thing

                                                    But my question is: do you like your dad? (not the biological one) even after the dna results?

I just reconnected with my biological father after 40 years of being told he tried to give me away when I was born and he didn't love me - Turns out my mom was jealous because he loved me so much and kicked him out when I was 3 and then told me lies about how he felt about me. She is now angry at me for talking to him.

Once I saw 50% 'Middle East' and that your research matched it w/ 'Egyptian', i thought your biological dad might have been an Egyptian Coptic Christian, part of their heritage is from Early Christians who migrated from Lebanon/Syria to Egypt, bringing early Christianity from the Levant to North Africa. Can you trace them to see if that is the case? BTW, I swear I wrote the aforementioned sentence before hearing the confirmation you give @ 10:40 - once you said the Middle Eastern matches were 'Egyptian' I immediately thought 'Coptic Christian'. In any event, you are a beautiful woman. Be proud of your beautiful heritage. All the best, peace.

I’m sorry your mother did not react favourably 😢❤️

That community is amazing and full awesome stories. truly you wish you the best. :) hopefully get to see you experience that community. My prayers to you
