Woman Tracks Down Her Anonymous Sperm Donor And They Fall In Love

An Australian woman that conceived a child through IVF from a sperm donor met the donor in person one year after her daughter was born. The mother, Aminah Hart, simply wanted her sperm donor, Scott Andersen, to play a role in her daughter Leila’s life. But when the couple met, sparks flew. Hart, 42, went through IVF with an anonymous donor after losing her two young sons Marlon and Louis to the genetic disorder x-linked myotubular myopathy. Hart herself had grown up without a father, so when she gave birth to Leila, she began tracking down the donor so her daughter wouldn’t share the same fate. Anderson, who had told the fertility clinic he’d be willing to meet a child born from his sperm, met Hart nearly one year after Leila was born. What are the odds? 

“It was much easier than I’d anticipated,” Aminah said in an interview. “I was nervous … I was walking in to meet a complete stranger and I had his genetic child in my arms.” In the following months, the two fell in love, and in December 2015, the two exchanged vows in Sorrento, Victoria. Leila was a flower girl for the ceremony.
Now, Hart has written a book about her family’s story titled “How I Met Your Father.” And some sources have reported a film is also in the works.
