TLC REUNITES LOVED ONES ON NEW SPECIAL "LONG LOST FAMILY"

-- One-Hour Special Airs Sunday, March 1 at 10/9c --

(Los Angeles, Ca.) - Hoping to find their biological families, two adoptees team up with hosts Chris Jacobs and Lisa Joyner to embark on an emotional journey in the new one-hour special LONG LOST FAMILY. For hosts Chris and Lisa, the painstaking search for answers is familiar territory. Both of them were adopted as young children, later searching for - and ultimately reuniting with - their biological families. Premiering Sunday, March 1 at 10/9c on TLC, viewers will watch adoptees go through the ups and downs of trying to track down loved ones they're so anxious to meet.

Christopher Hanson hasn't seen his mother in 30 years. After being left in a grocery store parking lot when he was only 6-years-old, Christopher has been haunted by this memory for most of his life and has always longed to reunite with his mother. Eventually adopted by a loving family, Christopher is desperate to unlock the mysteries of what happened on that day and discover exactly why he never saw his mom again. Paula, a 54-year-old grandmother of 10, knows very little about her biological family. She is longing to meet them and find out why her parents kept her for a few days, only to give her up and never reach out again.

Chris and Lisa are uniquely poised to provide emotional support and guidance as the adoptees brace for the rigors of this difficult search. Hitting so close to home for both Chris and Lisa, the two will stop at nothing to try and give Christopher and Paula the news both so desperately want to know.

Ancestry, the world's leading family history service, is teaming up with TLC again to sponsor this special. In coordination with LONG LOST FAMILY, Ancestry provided AncestryDNA kits used by the two adoptees to confirm their biological families while Chris and Lisa used records on Ancestry.com to help bring Christopher and Paula's exhaustive searches to an end.

LONG LOST FAMILY is produced by Shed Media who also produces TLC's WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?
