The Gello Show

Weekdays 6am-10am

For those who don’t know, Joanna from The Gello Show is adopted, so she took a DNA test to learn about her ancestry and decided to start the search for her birth family.

Joanna bestowed Gello the honor of reading her DNA test results live on-air…

Afterwards, Joanna knew she needed to inform her adoptive mom, Alice, but didn’t know how she would react to it.

We decided to call Alice and tell her that we got the results back…

Hear the DNA results and Joanna’s emotional phone call with Alice…
