What is DNA? DNA stands for “deoxyribonucleic acid.” According www.dna.gov, DNA is “the fundamental building block for an individual’s entire genetic makeup.” It is found in almost every cell in the human body, such as in skin cells, tissues, muscles, organs, hair, saliva, mucus, blood, semen, etc.

A person can learn about his family tree through DNA testing. DNA is also used to solve crimes. One of the most common DNA tests is DNA paternity testing. This test helps determine a child’s biological father.

DNA paternity test is a simple and painless procedure. One way of collecting DNA samples is through the use of buccal swabs. Here is how it’s done: Rub the buccal swabs on the inside of the cheek of your mouth, place the swabs in the container provided and send this container to the lab for testing.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
