    A Letter From Your Unknown Dad

    I don't know what you've been told, but I would never purposely hurt you. I don't care how you got here, or who your mother is, you are part of me, and hurting you is hurting myself. I know we have never met, but I want to explain something to you just in case we never do. There...

    I have 2 moms & so I was made in a lab.

    Never met my dad (the donor) but I've read information. I haven't seen pictures and i want to know what he looks like and if he looks like me. I can meet him when I'm 18 if he wants but I don't know if I will.

    No one tells me anything about the man

    who created me. So I usually just sit here and sob about what I could be when I don't have to ask what if you don't have a dad in class when I don't have to explain why I don't have a dad. I just want to know his name? Is that too much to ask!
