Massachusetts father and son reunite thanks to DNA test

"It felt so good to put your arms around your dad and to know he loves you and you love him," Jason Campbell said.


Jason Campbell grew up never knowing his father, Mark Goujon, but spent decades looking for him. It wasn't until Campbell took a DNA test that he was able to make a link to his biological family. The pair had an emotional reunion.

For Goujon, he said the connection was immediate: "I can’t really explain it other than I just knew. I just knew."

"There are no words to explain that feeling that you know, to know you had a dad out there, you know, and I wasn't just left behind. You know, he just didn't know about me," said Campbell.

The father-and-son duo is making up for lost time.
