Have you met 401?

6-foot-4, of German heritage, has a master’s degree, is athletic and is very close to his mother,” does this sound like the ideal man to bear offspring with? According to 11 different women who selected donor 401 from a sperm bank in Virginia, the answer is an absolute Yes!.

Some women have their book clubs, and others belong to professional groups. Some connect in therapy and others through sororities. But here is a relatively new connection: a group of 11 sharp, educated and independent women brought together by one man’s sperm.

And thanks to Wendy Kramer (who also reared a child through sperm donation), they now have a place to meet, talk and create a modern day family tree. She and her son started the site DonorSiblingRegistry.com where people could sign up to meet their half-siblings, other mothers that had children from the same donor and in some rare cases, even the donor themselves.

    Well definitely not Hitler as he measured in at a mere 5’9″ (of course I guess he Austrian, not German, but close enough)
