My mother's doctor was Dr. Irwin Weiner. His office is now long closed. This was in the early 70s and at the time his office was located at 614 2nd Avenue at 34th Street. However, he was affiliated with NYU Medical Center. I was told my donor was Jewish and a NYU Med student. There were a few donations in late 1972 (Dec.) and early (Jan.) 1973. I was born October 1973. I have dark (almost black )hair, pale skin and brown eyes. I am also very thin, which I did not seem to inherit from my Mom. I am 5"2'. I am searching for my sperm donor or any possible siblings.
Pilot, flight trainer, waitress, was soon to attend a culinary institute.
Hiking, professional dog walker, swing dancing, batiquing, drawing, reading.
The egg donor had studied architecture in college for two years and anthropology for one with a minor in French; communications. The donor was engaged at the time. Her mother was born in New Mexico and her father was born in Kentucky; she was born in the south. She had a sister, a half-sister, and a half-brother.
He was supposed to have been a New York University/Bellevue medical student or resident who took Dr. O'Leary's class. In recently speaking to another person who was conceived via Dr. O'Leary, I'm not sure that his promise that the donors were all med students (or that they were all under 30) was really accurate so he may have another profession. I don't have many details. It was informal so there was no donor number. If he were a medical student or resident in 1972, I would guess he was born around 1942-1950. I've discovered he must be Ashkenazi Jewish from my own DNA testing, as this heritage doesn't match anyone else in my family.
