For kids born from sperm donation, it’s extremely tough learning who dad is

Hosted by

Courtney McKinney didn’t know her dad was a sperm donor until she was 16. Her mom is black, and said there were no black sperm donors in 1989, so she picked a white man. Now at age 28, Courtney’s on a quest to find her dad. She’s discovered it’s hard for kids born from sperm donation to get information about their fathers, even in this age of easily available genetic testing.
