>> Reporter: WHEN SHE WAS 29,

THAT IDEA BECAME A REALITY.

WENDY'S MOM INVITED HER TO JOIN

A THERAPY SESSION.

AND IT WAS THERE, WENDY'S MOM

ADMITTED TO HAVING AN AFFAIR

MANY YEARS EARLIER, BEFORE WENDY

WAS BORN.

>> SHE DISCOVERED SHE WAS

PREGNANT.

AND SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHO SHE WAS

PREGNANT BY.

I DIDN'T SPEND A LOT OF TIME

THINKING ABOUT IT BETWEEN THE

TIME THAT I WAS A TEENAGER AND I

WAS 29.

I HAD FOUR KIDS.

I WAS WORKING.

I WAS BUSY.

>> Reporter: WENDY SAYS IT TOOK

HER TEN, FULL YEARS TO FINALLY

ASK HER DAD TO TAKE A DNA TEST

WITH HER.

AND HE AGREED.

>> I HAD A STRONG SUSPICION THAT

MY DAD WASN'T MY BIOLOGICAL

FATHER.

>> Reporter: WHAT SHE LEARNED

FROM THAT TEST WAS THE MAN SHE

CALLED DAD WAS NOT, IN FACT, HER

BIOLOGICAL FATHER.

>> THIS PERSON NAMED BILL MILLER

WAS MY BIOLOGICAL FATHER.

AND I WAS THINKING, HOW WOULD I

EVER FIND THIS PERSON?

THERE'S THOUSANDS OF BILL MILLER

MILLERS.

>> Reporter: AND ANOTHER DECADE

WENT BY.

>> FOR SOME REASON, I DECIDED TO

FINALLY DO IT.

>> Reporter: WENDY TOOK A SECOND

DNA TEST.

THIS TIME, ON HER 49th BIRTHDAY.

>> I GOT THE RESULTS BACK.

RIGHT ABOVE MY PICTURE WAS A

PICTURE OF A MAN.

AND IT SAID, WILLIAM MILLER,

FATHER, 50% MATCH.

I WAS SO SHOCKED.

>> Reporter: BILL MILLER WAS

CURIOUS ABOUT HIS OWN ANCESTRY

AND WAS IN THE SYSTEM BECAUSE HE

HAD TAKEN A DNA TEST PRIOR.

>> FINDING WENDY HAS BEEN THE

BEST THING THAT'S HAPPENED TO ME

AND THIS PART OF MY LIFE.

BUT IT'S BEEN THE MOST

DIFFICULT, TOO.

>> Reporter: DIFFICULT BECAUSE

WHAT WENDY WOULD LEARN, IS SHE

AND BILL MILLER HAD VERY

DIFFERENT MREEFBELIEFS.

>> HE STARTED LABELING

EVERYBODY.

THEY WERE A JEW.

THEY WERE BLACK.

WOULDN'T JUST TELL ME THEIR

NAME.

I TRIED TO TELL HIM HOW HE

TALKED WAS HURTFUL.

AT THE SAME TIME, HE WAS WANTING

TO HOLD MY HAND.

HE WAS SO HAPPY HE MET ME.

>> Reporter: WHEN ASKED IF HE IS

A RACIST, BILL SAYS, NO MORE SO

THAN MOST AMERICANS.

>> MY ATTITUDE TOWARD THINGS IS

NOT -- CAN EASILY BE PUT INTO A

BOX.

I SEE GOODNESS AND I'M TROUBLED

BY A LOT OF THINGS.

IT'S NOT A BLACK AND WHITE KIND

OF THING.

>> Reporter: AND WEDNESDAYNDY LEARNED A

MORE SURPRISING SECRET ON HER

FAMILY TREE.

WE'LL HAVE THAT FOR YOU IN A

When I walked through a snowstorm for a cigarette,

that's when I knew I had to quit.

plus intense craving relief.

Every great why

needs a great how.

Any questions?

-Yeah. -How do you go to the bathroom?

Great. Any insurance-related questions?

-Mm-hmm. -Do you have a girlfriend?

Uh, I'm actually focusing on my career right now,

saving people nearly $600 when they switch, so...

Where's your belly button?

[ Sighs ]

I've got to start booking better gigs.
