DNA Solves Switched at Birth Mystery ... After 57 Years
Date:1/26/2009

DNA solves another mystery when 57 year old Fred George discovered he was switched at birth. Fred's father, John George, occasionally - sometimes in fun and sometimes more seriously - accused his wife of having had an affair after Fred was born since he looked nothing like the rest of the family.

Pembroke, MA (PRWEB) January 26, 2009 -- Frederick George was raised as a Roman Catholic in a Lebanese family of 13 children but should have been raised in a Scottish Presbyterian family of five, if not switched at birth.

"I was accidentally placed in the wrong bassinet at the hospital the night I was born and did not discover this until I was 57-years-old," says George. "The result is that I lived a life that should have been someone else's and he lived a life that should have been mine."

George tells the heart-wrenching story of two families forever impacted by a nurse's simple mistake in the autobiography, Switched at Birth: My Life in Someone Else's World (ISBN- 978-1439204825, Sept 2008, BookSurge, 218 pages, $15.99).

Switched at Birth tells of growing up with a father who always suspected George was someone else's son, of how the birth switch was discovered, and how the author came to terms with the fact that he had been living in someone else's world.

"The man I knew as my father, John George, occasionally - sometimes in fun and sometimes more seriously - accused his wife of having had an affair after I was born," says George, "I didn't look Lebanese. As it turns out, I wasn't even slightly Lebanese!"

George was raised the son of John and Ngaire George in a Lebanese community in Dunedin, New Zealand, where he remained for 26 years until moving to America about 35 years ago. It took more than half a century for George to learn he was actually born the son of Gordon and Helen Churchman. Of his four parents, only birth
