My husband is not the father of my child.
What happens when your child's real father turns out to be a convicted kidnapper?
Many couples have problems with conceiving children, and tire of trying day-in
and day-out; a lot of them resort to the option of artificial insemination, but
what if this went horribly wrong?
This had happened to a family from Utah who struggled to
conceive. They went to their local clinic and always believed that the sperm
that was provided was from the husband, but ultimately, it wasn’t.
The women’s daughter was said to be fathered by a man called
Thomas Lippert, he was previously arrested for kidnapping.
Imagine giving birth
to a kidnapper’s child without knowing…
The mother, who doesn’t want to be identified, said she was
shocked at the news. They were aware that there could have been some sort of
mix-up and soon after finding out, they attempted contacting the clinic but
then learned that it no longer existed.
With knowing that, the parents then used the daughter’s DNA
to identify the man who fathered their child. Thomas Lippert, the sperm donor
was a former employee at the clinic they had the insemination done.
The mother said that she remembered seeing a number of
photos behind the desk of which Lippert sat and said he was extremely proud of
all the children the clinic had facilitated.
The question hangs in
the air… How many of those children has he fathered?
Thomas Lippert was an ex-college professor before he worked
at the clinic, who served two years in prison for a high profile kidnapping
case. He kidnapped a girl from college and kept her for three weeks to perform
a “love experiment” on her. He kept her in a black box and used electroshock
therapy on her to make her fall in love with him.
Why would a fertility
clinic employ someone who was capable of doing something so bizarre?
According to The Stir, the mom says she would have gone
through anything to have their child and it doesn’t change the family feelings
DNA is very important, but the DNA isn’t what makes them
your child, it’s the love and bond the two of you share and build while rearing
How would you feel
about finding out that the child you gave birth to, you shared with a criminal?
