The story of her search for her birth parents was featured on Long Lost Family at 9:01 p.m. Sunday on TLC.
"All of them so far have been tearjerkers, but ours will be different," she says. "I was told one thing by my adoptive parents ... but it turns out to be crime. It's actually a very sad story, but it's a happy story about why I was given up ... it was for my benefit."
Kahle, 58, thinks her story came to the show's attention after she joined an adoption website that she thought led her to what she thought was her family. She found out it was the wrong one when the DNA tests came back negative.
She says the show stepped in and said, "We know some things you don't know, and this is a pretty good story." It seems they did.
The episode starring a Frisco woman is called "Everything Your Parents Told You Was a Lie."
"My adoptive parents were wonderful but they discouraged it and did not want me looking," she says. "When they passed away in 2007, I said, 'You know what? I'm going to look'."
Kahle works for Frisco ISD in special education at the Early Childhood School.
She says a team of 10 people came to her house in November of last year and shot the episode over two days.
She's excited for the episode to finally air: "I promise it'll be good," she says.
