Late discovery of genetic origins project

Helen Riley is a late discovery adoptee from Australia.  She has set up this site in order to gather more information and data about 'late discovery' experiences.  She's very interested in raising awareness about the effects and implications of discovering the truth of one's genetic origins later in life.  She's currently doing her PhD at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia into the ethical implications involved for both late discovery adoptees and donor conceived adults.

If you are a late discovery (adolescence thru adulthood) donor conceived adult or adoptee, PLEASE submit your experience to the website via email.  It is all confidential and will be used only as collated data which will be added to the site.  You can also provide your experiences in the comments section, at which it will not be confidential.
