Today’s Alternative Parenting show was another resounding success. The show included many leading experts giving advice on how to navigate through the minefield of starting a family, whether in a same-sex relationship, single or needing a donor to conceive.
I did once seek out my biological father.
A front-page article had hit The New York Times, and I was suddenly spammed by 6,000 well-meaning friends emailing me about DonorSiblingRegistry.com, a website that helps people track down sperm-donor fathers and potential siblings.
Back when I was conceived, my moms chose to keep their sperm donor anonymous, in both directions, feeling that doing so best protected the family they were starting, in particular R's position as the non-biological mother.
