    They, the sperm bank, obviously withdrew from the wrong account.

    The kid might be an opportunity for the 98% white community to embrace diversity. I would love to follow this story from a noninvasive distance.

    There is a word for this, let's see, just what is that word, wait, I'll think of it in a minute.

    Oh yeah. I think the word is LITIGATION.

    I love the concept that a handful of money is going to fix the problem.

    I have a feeling the kid will be fine, unless the media decides to stalk.

    My limited knowledge of genetics leads me to this question..."Is there any way that skin pigmentation could show up generations later?" In other words, in other instances than this particular situation, is it possible that a donor could be white and didn't know he had the gene for dark skin?

    It brings to mind another question..."Are sperm banks responsible for the appearance of every recessive gene?"

    It would seem to me that when it comes to reproduction, there are no guarantees...I'm almost certain that my ex would like our children to look like less of me than him...

    ...hmmmmm....many questions...

    Concerning you last comment re: you children's looks, perhaps plastic surgery....seems to be, along with tattoos, the thing to do.





    I am, of course being silly...sorta. 😉

    yes this happened to a friend I have from Stoke, his parents were to all intents and purposes white but he looked a little Asian, apparently some genetic traits had skipped a generation or two and resurfaced in him.

    There is a story by Kate Chopin: Dessirèes baby

    This is a great story though the contents is quite tragic...
