Liane's Story

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?
