I got told that basically my dad wasn't my real dad as a result of a family fight.
My younger brother and I have the same donor.

I just want to know the donor so badly, no one in my family talk to me anymore, so I just want to know him.

I somehow knew from a young age I wasnt like everyone else in my family. I don't look like anyone! I want to be able to look at my donor and say, "I have his eyes" or "we are so alike!" and to feel accepted for once

I want a dad...

Welcome to the forum Kaitlin.
I know so many other donor conceived people who found out in bad circumstances like arguments/fights.
Have you tried approaching the clinic to see if they have any information that they can give you (non-identifying information), and have you put your name on the WA register?

Hi Kaitlin,

Welcome to the forum and thanks for your post.

There are different options available to you depending on when you were born. The younger you are the better chance there is for you to find your donor or any other half-siblings.

There is the voluntary register in WA: http://www.voluntaryregister.health.wa.gov.au/home/

Other than that, as Damian suggested, you can contact the clinic.
