I'm not sure if I should post this here or in On Topic. Mods, please move it if you think it'll get better answers there. Long story short, I'm a surrogate child. As far as I know, one of the first few in the country. When my parents married, my mother (the one that raised me) had a hysterectomy. My father really wanted a child and they heard about surrogacy. The contacted a lawyer who's specialty was adoption and he helped them. They went on the Phil Donahue show a few times to find my birth mother. They eventually found one in Knoxville, TN. Inseminated her with my fathers sperm, and the rest is history. The only information I have is her name, birth date, and city of residence between 1977 - 1978. Anyone know how I could find her? I've done a lot of Internet searching but it doesn't really lead anywhere. I would like to do this on my own, without hiring someone. But if I have to hire someone I will. I would also love to find the Phil Donahue episodes that my parents were on. They have to be in storage somewhere. I have tried contacting the local affiliate network that he was on back in the day but my requests go unanswered.
