Dad, not donor

Submitted on: July 10, 2018

My dad is my biological dad and he raised me. I signed up for a DNA site and found many half siblings. I’m realizing he was a sperm donor before I was born. I have the answers my newly found genetic relatives may be looking for. I haven’t made contact with them. For all they know, my profile is another person who doesn’t know their biological dad. My dad donated with anonymity and still wants that. How could I not respect that? I’ve been trying to learn about this community since I made this discovery. It seems there are varying perspectives. Some people would likely disapprove, others likely wouldn’t care who I am and just want to know their full gentic family history. My plan is to share important family medical history with my half-siblings before deleting my account. That is the most fair outcome I can think of.
