According to Cameroon, he did a DNA test after turning 26, which confirmed that the man who had raised him was not his biological dad.
“I now have two fathers. My father that raised me, is still in my life. I found out about my biological dad when I was 18.
I didn’t actually do a DNA test until I was 26. Once it came back no probability I reached out to my biological dad,” he wrote.
Cameron reached out to his biological father through text and informed him that there was a chance he could be his soon.
“Hey my name is Cameron. I don’t really know how to do this, I'm just wondering and hoping you and I could have a conversation,” Cameroon’s message read.
“About what?” His father responded.
That is when Cameron informed him about their possible relationship.
Netizens share their stories
Cameron’s post went viral, and some netizens shared stories of how they met their biological dads. Here are some of the comments:
"I’m so happy for you! I had a similar experience and connected with my dad on Facebook in 2013."
"Same thing happened to me."
"No DNA needed. You’re your father's son."
Cameron responded to the feedback writing:
“Your stories are inspiring and beautiful. Thanks to each and every one of you for sharing.”
