Welcome to the Riess family’s website. On this website, we discuss the 1976 adoption of our daughter, Michelle Riess, and unexpectedly finding her after 40 years of separation thanks to an Ancestry DNA test. We also discuss the indictment of adoption attorney, Edward Kent, who illegally arranged the adoption along with a few other adoptions.
