My name is Liane, and I was
born by artificial insemination with donated sperm.
My mother was unable to have children with her first
husband, who had had a vasectomy. My mother remarried
when I was 3, and it had always been confusing to me
why my Dad appeared a bit later in my life, and where
was he before? After questioning my mother about this,
she finally told me the truth in grade 3.
I am now 18. I love my Dad very much, he has been an
excellent father and I don't think of him as any different
than I would if he were my biological father. He has
legally adopted me, he is my father. However, there
is always this curiosity in the back of my mind... I
wonder what my biological father looks like. I don't
look much like my mom. I often wonder how many half
brothers and sisters I might have. I wonder what kind
of personality he has, I'm so different from my mom
in a lot of ways. I'm just curious, and I wouldn't want
a father/daughter relationship with this person. I just
want to meet my other half. It's frustrating though,
I've never tried, but I know that the donor was anonymous
and I don't know where to begin looking. I wonder if
they would still have the records?
