Client Testimonial: Scott Lanier

Michelle worked with Scott Lanier who was adopted in the State of California.  His adoption was closed which means that the state would only share non-identifying information with him. Using the results from his DNA Test Michelle built out family groups and analyzed the results. Traditional research was conducted to expand the family groups to identify Scott's biological mother and father. Scott also had the opportunity to connect with other biological half-siblings discovered through the DNA testing process.

“I decided to find my birth family and did a DNA test. After realizing it was more complicated than I thought, I used the services of MB Boutiques to find my birth Mom.

Michelle was very detailed and thorough in her research. Not only did she help me find my birth Mom, but found my birth Dad and 2 half siblings as well.

The diligence of their research was fantastic!!

I would recommend them to anybody without hesitation!!” – Scott Lanier
