Australia’s adoption sector has been imploring online DNA platforms to work with them, but so far such calls have received a tepid response.

“They treat DNA matching as a straightforward scientific event,” says Fiona Cameron from The Benevolent Society’s Post Adoption Resource Centre.

“People are buying them as gifts for a 40th birthday, and the recipients then feel compelled to do it.”

It overlooks the complex and emotional task of connecting with an unknown family, remarks Fiona, who adds that she has heard of people discovering they were adopted when they thought they had been raised by their biological parents.
