Local DNA Stories
A Medford man who was adopted as a young child reunited with his mom at 61, thanks to DNA testing. Ron Swain was adopted at 16 months old and grew up in southern California. He lived a great childhood but always wanted to know his biological mother. Since his adoption agency was closed, he knew it would be difficult. Swain moved around, living in Bend, OR, and the Philippines, where he fell in love. He eventually lost interest in finding his mother but still wanted to learn about his ancestry, so he took a DNA test. The DNA test matched him to his niece, and the two connected. He found his 79-year-old mother who resided in Seattle with his sister and his niece. The Medford man flew to Seattle to meet his mom and sister and met other family members in Seattle and Portland. As of 2019, Swain had also received a message about his biological father’s family.
