    Entitled millennial moron outs father who loved and raised her. Guys, stay far away from creatures like this. Not only will she talk you to death, she won't hesitate to publicly castigate you or proactively punish you at every opportunity. You have been warned...

    I found out I was adopted by accident, I found adoption papers whilst I was cleaning in the cupboard, it messed me up big time, I made this video today about it, come watch it if you have the time, feelings of rejection are real you cant get away from that, also a crisis of identity comes, I wish I never knew.

    I just learned the same thing a few weeks ago. A simple, for fun, AncestryDNA test brought out 30 year old secrets. I wanted to make a family tree, see my genealogy, where my ancestors were from, find 3-5th cousins I’d never heard of. Instead I found a half sister and a first cousin who I didn’t recognize.

    Can't help but think; spoiled selfish brat, what a slap in your father's face, he wanted you so much he needed another mans sperm to bring you into his life, he loved you, took care of you and raised you very well by the look of things, but you threw all that back in his face going after another man. One that tossed you into a test tube for money and walked away.
    The brother... he must be a lovely young man that makes his father proud.

    It's not 'a slap in the face' or selfish to want to find out about your biological parent/biological family. I have a half brother who was told at 17 that my mom was six months pregnant when she met my father, and his stepdad. He cried for days over it, and still calls my dad dad and nothing has changed about that relationship. But he still wishes that he knew that side of his family. And that's completely understandable. He could have siblings or anything, really.

    Brian has a couple of companies. One ot them deals with stem cells. It looks like he is using the ones from china, from placenta and he is injecting it in his body very heavely. Since placenta cells are to make babies grow faster, thats the intention of mother nature, he is growing his face and body again, so his body dont need to grow orgams or bones because he is 55 years old, but he is forcing his body the way mother nature didnt intended, since this cells are in premature steps no body knows how it works on adults. The same happens with bodybulders and growth hormones, thats why they look awfull and they have a huge stomag, becuase their guts keep growing and the muscles break. The same happens with brians face, his nose grew too much. He is young, 55 is really young but he looks like he is 75. Funny is that this thing he does in china is backfiring him. In the states is not allowed. Finally, he is happy he has goten biological kids, so he can blood or cells in case he needs it. The whole 3 parts of the story are really sad. Curiosity killed the cat, and I see sam really awkward because she doesnt know what she is doing to her feelings but she films the whole ordeal, mibght to be someone on the internet and taste fame, who knwos, but sadly it backfired her just like his bio father with the stem cells. Sad documentary, I dont see the point. I guess it is what internet feed us, I we dont know if it is good or wrong until we see it. I wasted my time.

    Your bio father was a sperm donor that make your parents happy having you and your siblings. Your father is the one who loved and raised you as his own. That's the important thing.

    Pandora's box... not referring to the young lady in the video, but the sperm donation and all the other genetic tampering we've been doing and will continue to do over the years... Glad she was able to find her biological father, I believe it is crucial to have this information. Best Wishes to you and your family.

    I get wanting to find your relatives, I really do, but I also think this man has a right to remain anonymous. There's no reason to think he wants to be seen as a father or have a relationship with any of these children, which seems like something he should have respected because he was just doing a favor to future couples wanting to conceive. I mean, it's one thing to find out your health history, it's another to find a new 'father', which puts a lot of different pressures onto the person.

    At SOME POINT every child deserves to know if their father is not their biological father. Esp. once they're 18. It's selfish not to tell them. It's not your place to keep it from them. They have a RIGHT to know.

    I think she was smart. My oldest brother found out the hard way in the hospital while his dad was dying. He wanted to donate well he had the blood type that was impossible to be his dad. His mom had died already so he had to do research from grandparents. We got a email from him and he was my dads from when he was a teenager. It was hard

    The fact that this means so much to so many people and the fact that adoptees always want to find out about their biological parents tells me that the adage, "the one who raised you is your parent and there's no need to know more" doesn't entirely hold water in people's natural minds--true as it may be in practice. And I think the fact that there have been so many revelations of false paternity out there is a little dangerous to both the conservative social structure and to liberalism. Nevertheless, the world will never improve until there is more truth told and less deception.

    That was boring. I clicked on the video expecting her to be the only sibling with different dna than the others, so they would find out about her mom's affair. Then her father dies of a broken heart and a civil war would break out, because even though she was not of royal blood, she was clearly the most capable ruler and had the people's support for the throne. Now that I think about, I might have some unrealistic expectations for BuzzFeed videos.

Who ever casted the doubt, that person should of told you the truth and not having to go through paternity test. Mommy is a liar just like.........

Give me a break.

    Found out at 50 my dad was not my biological dad. Did a DNA test and found out much of my life was a lie . It’s tough going sometimes, we were very different and it was abusive at times . Getting close to finding my Aussi dad .
    You were brought into the world with so much love , and it’s obvious your parents love you . I’m embracing my new ethic heritage and the old one as well .

    It's selfish to lie to your child about who their father is... My grandma was lied to as well. She didn't find out that the man that raised her and was the father of her younger brothers, was not her biological father. Until her mother DIED and her aunt finally told her the truth. By that time my grandma was 54. I can't imagine how blindsided she felt.

    A lot of puffed up opinions are flying around here. In the end who cares who lied to who and how "wrong" or "right" some element of this all was? These people feel good about it, they got over their shock from not knowing and gained a lot from the experience. They even got some small amount of youtube recognition (whatever that's worth) Can we just leave it at that without all the "SUCH BLASPHEMY!!" and just live our own lives?

    Okay, I'm not that mean. :) Here's what it reads:

    In Your Own Words...

    Why do you want to be a donor?
    *_I need the money._*

    In your own words, describe your personality and character.
    *_I am outgoing and very social. I am hard working and industrious._*

    What are your hobbies, interest and talent?
    *_I like tennis swimming travel skiing sports_*

    If we could pass on a message to the recipients(s) of your semen, what would that message be?
    *_be a good parent._*

    P.S. Teach your kids, and/or yourself, cursive.
