The child also has a right to know the heritage of the dna on his biological mother's side. Is there a history of heart disease, etc.
I will never forget a GMA program several years ago when a young adolescent girl, conceived through donor insemination, wanted to meet her biological father. She blushed when he appeared on a large tv monitor, accompanied by his wife and 2 sons. She posed the typical questions of others born from such scenarios. Did he have large feet? - Yes. That explained from whom she had inherited the feet so much larger than those of her mom. The other questions were in a similar vein and the girl blushed at the image of her "dad", primping herself in hopes that he he approved of his "little girl". Finally, the GMA host posed the question: "Do you have other children from your donations?" The man smile broadly, puffed his chest a bit, then announced he had hundreds of other children and ... laughing heartily ... he hoped they all would not come looking for him.
The beautiful smile on that girl's face, faded rapidly. Her shoulders drooped and she slowly sat down in her seat as the reality of that comment bore into her precious heart. Her hopes of being Daddy's little girl, went up in smoke. She was no more special to him than yesterday's newspaper.
Every child has a right to a mother and a father.
Good Lord. That is heartbreaking.
Today it is all about every attention grabbing weirdo and not about the children.
