Couple Sues IVF Clinic after giving Birth to Asian Child

A white couple discovered they were raising a baby fathered by another man after the child developed Asian features. The pair blame their fertility clinic for the IVF mishap, which they claim led to their divorce. Now the New Jersey clinic must hand over a list of sperm donors after Kristina Koedderich and Drew Wasilewski filed individual lawsuits against it. The couple say the error dawned on them as they noticed their daughter developing Asian features and were told she has a blood disorder associated with Southeast Asian heritage, according to court documents. A DNA test later proved Drew was not the girl’s biological father.

In his written testimony he revealed his ‘devastation’ at the news, while Kristina recalled them both breaking down in tears. The ‘nightmare scenario’ resulted after the couple spent some $500,000 at the Institute of Reproductive Medicine and Science at Saint Barnabas (IRMS) so they could have a baby together. David Mazie, representing the couple, said: ‘Even though they love her, they were entitled to have a child with both of their genes ‘What happened to the father’s sperm that he doesn’t know about?’ The lawyer said Drew now wants to know if he is the biological father to another child.
