(Massachusetts) Donor Found! I am a Donor Conceived, donor is of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage. Dr. Donald Peter Goldstein who is now at Brighams and Women/Beth Israel/Harvard was my mother's physician. At the time, it was a Harvard /Mass Children's Hospital/ Beth Israel project. Dr. Goldstein coordinated the DI procedure on my mother in the Summer of 1975. There may have been another doctor that performed or accompanied the procedure. According to my mother the other doctor was tall, young with dark hair. My blood is O+. At the time of conception, Dr. Goldstein told my mother that he was a Harvard Medical Student. I have yearbooks. Since meeting my biological father/donor, it is clear that many things said were blatantly untrue which can be confirmed via DNA. At the time of conception, which my mom recalled took place in a wing of Massachusetts Children's Hospital, across from Beth Israel, my mother also recalled a sanskrit prayer in English placed on the ceiling.
In 1991, Dr. Goldstein told my mom and I that her/my file existed and said there was nothing in the file. In 1995, he said he can't find it. In 2011, he stated, "I have made an honest attempt to find the early records on your mother but they are nowhere to be found." His secretary was Ann Moran, who indicated to my mother they may have been in Iron Mountain Storage Facility.
I live in Maryland and I work in public health. I would like to speak with anyone about this topic.
My mom received IUI in fall 1975 with in Longwood Obgyn practice. Mother was told donor was a medical student. He indeed was a student of a Boston Univeristy ; graduating in 1978. Ashkenazi Jewish descent. Donor was tall (would say almost 6ft), dark curly hair, green eyes, left handed (all information is direct from donor).Donated a handful of times in spring thru fall of 1975.
My mom was inseminated summer 1959 at what was then the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital. She was told the donor was an intern at the hospital, and he had type O blood. My half-sib and I have identified the donor, who is deceased. But if you were conceived in the late 1950s - early 1960s at the Brigham complex of hospitals, please do a DNA test and get in touch with us!
My mother was artificially inseminated in 1978 at Boston lying-in hospital and/or Boston woman's hospital, which are now Brigham Women's Hospital. May have been Richardson house or Richardson wing.
Dr. Stillman (Dr. Robert J. Stillman) was doctor.
Told the donor was a student. From DNA, the donor was Jewish (eastern European Jew, Ashkenazi) and may have been British.
Would be nice to meet someone who looks even remotely looks like me and/or has some of my personality.
