29. Dodds’ Outcome
One significant person in the Hatbox Baby investigation was Emily Dodds Farro; an adoptee herself, but most importantly Sharon’s great-grandniece and the DNA profile that cemented the possibility of the Roths being Sharon’s birth parents.
While she did find the identity and location of her birth parents, they, unfortunately, didn’t want much to do with her. Her attempts at communicating with them were rejected, with letters being sent right back to her.
Nevertheless, Emily understood that her birth parents wanted lives separate from her, but she still remains grateful that they gave her a second chance at life.
