At the age of 13, Adrieanna Tyler was given the surprising news that the man she had always believed to be her biological father was, in fact, her stepfather. Since that time, she has had an insatiable curiosity about the identity of her biological father.
Currently, Adrieanna is 33 years old, lives in Pittsburg with her husband, and is a mother to two children: Maximus, who is 4 years old, and Preslee, who is 2 years old.
She came to the conclusion that the best way to find her long-lost family was to get a DNA test and seek for assistance from members of a Facebook community whose purpose is to assist others in finding long-lost relatives.
Because of this, she was able to learn more about her aunt Kathie Johnson, who is 47 years old. After that, she came to the conclusion that her biological father had been a law enforcement officer in the state of Florida.
Adrieanna said that she was quite nervous when the other woman told her that she would connect her with her father. “How can you simply pick up the phone and ask someone, ‘Are you my father?’”
When Adrieanna finally got in touch with her biological father, Joseph Frank, she learned that he was overjoyed to learn that he had a child who was also a girl.
Joseph was completely unaware that Adrieanna ever existed prior to the 1980s, although he did recall having a “summer affair” with Adrieanna’s mother during that time period. After they stopped talking to one another, he had no clue that she had become pregnant and given birth to a child!
The next thirty days were spent by the two talking on the phone and engaging in daily video chats in order to get to know one another better. After that, Joseph made the trip all the way from Florida to Pennsylvania so that he could finally meet Adrieanna in person.
Adrieanna discovered that she had two half-sisters who are around the same age as her, and Joseph said that meeting his third daughter was an amazing experience. “The moment I found out about my daughter brought that void in my heart back to its previous level of satisfaction.”
