Ancestry DNA and a Reunion on The Katie Couric Show

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman March 09, 2015

Karen Hopkins is brave and strong. She is a selfless mother with a good heart. She is a woman who faced the challenges of her circumstance and made a heartbreaking decision.

Karen Hopkins placed her baby boy for adoption because she wanted what was best for her sweet little boy. She wanted him to have a good family — a mother and a father. She wanted him to have a happy and stable home.

Years later, through Ancestry DNA, Chris was able to find his birth mother. Reunited, they visit with each other on the Katie Couric Show. Chris has also been able to meet his half brother, whose DNA on Ancestry DNA helped them find each other.
