Jodie Sweetin Early Life
Born on 19 January 1982, in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, her parents were in prison at the time of her birth, therefore she was adopted by her Uncle and his wife when Jodie was 9 months old. Her uncle and his wife raised her as their daughter. It is said that her biological father had some native American blood. When she was three years old she used to study ballet and tap dancing. Before coming out to the public with her adoption story, she shared that she kept it quiet since many would speculate that she was forced into acting as a child by her new parents. This is not new in adoption cases. People generally think that way since the parents are not biologically related therefore they treat the child not as lovingly as they would if the child were biologically theirs. But it’s not the case for Sweetin. She was doing her studies while shooting ‘Full House’. She graduated in 1999 which was four after ‘Full House’. Continuing her studies after graduation, she attended Chapman University in California.
