In 2013, a young and ambitious lawyer Ted Wood made an agreement with Ancestry to find a biological father, but a DNA test helped him find a biological daughter.

Lawyer from California met his mother in the 90s. After the woman became pregnant while in high school and gave birth, she gave the child to the orphanage. She also told Wood that his father had gone somewhere. After that, the man decided to take a DNA test to find the biological father and meet with him. But, Wood did not know that thousands of people use DNA tests today. Sometimes, people conceived by donor sperm meet with donors in different circumstances.

"As all students, I was always looking for ways to earn cash. Donation was one of the fastest ways and I remember hot I got about $100 donating sperm. I forgot about this case many years ago and I didn’t know how it could change my life," Ted Wood told NBC News.

For several years, Wood’s sperm was stored in a common database. Ancestry reported to the man about coincidences from time to time. Last spring, Wood received a message about another coincidence. This time, the tests of the man coincided with his daughter.

"At that moment, I was back thirty years ago and remembered how I received 100 dollars. It was a shock ...I couldn't say anything," Ted Wood added.

A lawyer from California thought it was a mistake, so he ignored this message. At the same time, Melissa Daniels, 27, received that message too.

"Mom told about my conception, when I was a teenager. Since then, I wanted to find my biological father and meet him. Last spring, I decided to join Ancestry," said the girl.

A month later, Melissa Daniels received a message about the found match, too. After that, the girl sent a letter to Ted Wood and thanked him for the donation that he did 30 years ago.

“I didn’t get a response from my father, but I wasn’t upset. It was a shock for him ... We all were nervous. I sent another email and told more information about myself in a few days,” said Daniels.

After 5 days, Wood answered the girl and told about himself. They even wanted to meet, but 1,500 miles separated them. Daniels' mother died late last year, and the girl had another reason to meet with her biological father.

"It was a wonderful day. I remember being nervous waiting for her. After several hours of communication, I realized that we have the same views on politics, art and life in general. Turning to Ancestry, I wanted to find my father, but I found a piece of myself," said Wood.
