For many, the unexpected result will be the last one, an uncovered family secret. This type of discovery grows more common by the day and has been given a name: NPE, or “not the parent expected.” A variation on NPE is NEE, or “not the ethnicity expected,” which Kirkpatrick covers in a section of the guide as well. Additional resources for further reading and support are included at the end. Don’t miss this guide from the only genetic counselor who specializes in home DNA tests and family surprises.
