My Disastrous Family Reunion

Episode description

Mark Hawkins grew up in Michigan. The family who gave him up for adoption lives in the heart of Appalachia. 38 years after he was adopted, Hawkins’ biological family invited Mark to their neck of the woods. It was a gathering of people with nothing in common, other than common D-N-A. A complete clash of cultures.
