A woman, Kianni Arroyo, whose father was a sperm donor, has made contact with 40 other people born to the same sperm donor father. She has tracked down 40 siblings born to the same man, and she is sharing her encounters with them online.
Kianni Arroyo, from Orlando, Fl, first began the project five years ago, when she was a high school sophomore and has since discovered her siblings include four sets of twins as well as brothers and sisters as far afield as Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.

This 21-year-old woman is the oldest known sibling born to the donor, with the youngest just five months old. She was raised by her mother, who she says has always been honest with her about being born using a sperm donor.
Kianni, “I always wanted to find out more about who I was, and whether I had any siblings, so as soon as I was old enough to access the records I did just that.”
She began her search and found a local half-sister called Joanna, 20-year-old, who also lives in Florida.
