Did you grow up knowing exactly who your parents were? It's easy to take that for granted. But for some people, their parents' identity is a bit foggier, thanks to the miracle of sperm (or egg!) donation.
A recent Reddit thread asked people who've donated sperm to share their stories about whether or not they knew their kids. A ton of people responded, mostly about being the product of donation. Here are their stories — with a few of the actual donors thrown in.
my bio-dad donated sperm and gave permission to be identified. Didn't even have to be after 18. In counting (because we're not sure if we've found all of us yet) there are 53 half-siblings, all his kids. My full sister and I didn't know we were donor babies until I was a freshman in college, and her a junior in high school. It was a few more years before we found out the scope of our family.
