Former Connecticut resident finds family through DNA test


A woman’s search for her family is finally over after a DNA test helped create a reunion decades in the making.

Cassandra Waite was adopted as a child and grew up as an only child. She now lives in Virginia Beach, but moved to Connecticut from the Dominican Republic when she was young.

Last Christmas, her adopted mother bought her a DNA kit. The test revealed she had a cousin in Connecticut. She reached out, and her cousin was able to find Waite’s father. They spoke for the 1st time though video chat.

Now, she’s not the the only child anymore, but the second oldest of eight siblings.
