The couple, who are not being named, filed a lawsuit Aug. 28 against the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science at St. Barnabas in Livingston, requesting a host of records from the hospital in order to determine the genetic parents of the child. The couple went to the hospital for in vitro fertilization treatment in November 2012, and believed the hospital was using the egg and sperm donated by the mother and father. According to the couple's lawyer, David Mazie, the parents only realized the child wasn't theirs in 2015. "It wasn't until the child was 2 years old that she started having, they're both Caucasian, she started developing Asian features," Mazie told New York ABC station WABC. Among other information, the couple is seeking documents identifying employees who were working at IRMS on or about Nov. 7, 2012; electronic or physical log books of male clients; the identities of men who provided specimens on or around that date; information on the lab technicians involved; all Asian clients who donated semen specimens around the date; and all women who had their eggs thawed or fertilized in late November 2012. According to the lawsuit, the hospital claims it used the clients' sperm for IVF and that either the child is their own or"that an extramarital affair led to the minor Plaintiff's birth." "The minor Plaintiff is entitled to learn the identity of the actual father (if different from the Plaintiff)," the lawsuit states, referring to the now-6-year-old child."Among other reasons, the minor Plaintiff has a right to ascertain whether she is vulnerable to any genetic diseases." "The court has now ordered that the clinic produce to us everybody of Asian decent who donated sperm, was inseminated during the critical times that family was there," said Mazie."We want to find out who the genetic father is." The child is still being raised by the couple, unlike a recent, similar case in California, in which the court took custody of the child away. "She's still their child; they love her. She's 6 years old now," said Mazie. St. Barnabas said in a statement it would not comment:"This matter involves a private group in litigation. RWJBH does not comment on matters in litigation." The hospital has 30 days to respond to the filing. ABC News' Leo Mayorga and Matt Foster contributed to this report. Read more: ABC News
I thought you have to pay extra for an asian baby Heh. 'She's still their child; they love her. She's 6 years old now,' Lmao. This husband is really in denial. How sad for them. A nyilvántartás és a kutatás ezek szerint még mindig gyerekcipőben jár mert nem tudták ki szűrni azt hogy az emberiség a történelme folyamán természetes úton és erőszakos hódítások útján is genetikai keveredett.
Check the mailman... See what happens when you play God. 😆🤣😂 Oh no! waaaaa haaapen?!! He believe that shit?

Or the wife could be unfaithful🤭 Yahtzee. But does the baby identify herself as Asian? What a nightmare. I can’t believe the hospital said it could be her biological child and she could have had an extramarital affair. Hello, the onus is on you, fertility clinic. Thanks for blaming mom for doing something wrong as part of your defense.
They should keep the baby, though. Fate brought them together! Hahahahahahaha. This is jersey healthcare. And, yes, it was all paid for by the US taxpayer. I know this family, and they DID NOT pay for IVF. 😂😂😂 And who gets to decide what “Asian features” are? The white couple? Asking for a friend. Oh DAYUM!
Couple allegedly spent $120,000 deposited to account in bank mistake, charged with theftThe couple allegedly used the wrongly deposited money to pay off debts, but also used it on lavish items such as a race car and four-wheelers. Well, they actually did not “steal” it, it was “given” to them.😁 But they didn’t steal it tho... Is the bank being charged as an accessory?
They wanted a “Chad” but got a “Zhang” 😂😂😂 Different human race?! Did I miss the part where the article stated this is definitely not their child? Features stem from ancestors. So racist? Six years later... Could have been worse. It could have been green with almond shaped eyes. Maybe mom had an affair? 🤔
Not to be negative but I would start asking certain ppl carefully chosen questions. Secondly, I feel confident some persons would want the newborn if the current persons did not want the baby.

Oh the horrors. At least that's what she told her husband If you're ” playing God” don't be mad when it backfires on you. Made in China like everything else. Mess with nature... 😱 Well the kid would be 40 percent chance of being a doctor, 30 % engineer, 20 % and 10 % Bruce Lee WINWIN This hospital has no strick immigration control of their sperms tubes.
😲🙁---Shocking but sad. Unexpected, but a child is still a child. I know the couple was probably hoping the child would be 'genetically closer looking to them but, I think The couple should be grateful for the gift of life, regardless.
Couple says they were kicked out of Uber for being gayJennifer Mangan and Kristin Gauthier were on the way to a concert on Friday when they were kicked out of their Uber, the couple said.
Maybe the father wasn’t Asian. Me he has Melania eyes, like mine. They stupid they wanted a kid they got a kid why is that a problem omg 😡 TexSandra210 WTF! They should be overjoyed at having a baby. Not bitching about the baby not being white. We are all the same race, we have different ethnicities. Seem, an advocate meet them. Otherwise, Asian are more stronger. You have every right to sue hospital and know who is the biological father.
They should be happy. The one Asian addition to the family probably increased the IQ of the family threefold. Oh man, that's terrible. I feel sorry for the baby as well for the parents. Secret Asian Man Or ‘a baby’
Travel influencer couple defends death-defying photoAn Instagram post that shows two influencers on a cliff hundreds of feet above a lake, one apparently dangling the other over the abyss, has amassed over 14,000 likes and many critical comments Maybe society needs to think about who we consider to be good 'influencers'. I don’t think those two will be splitting the atom anytime soon. So as responsible journalist we’re going to bring more attention to this... Nice job guys! Here’s the pic that’s getting all the likes kids, now go out and one up them! sigh
Sum Ting Wong? Why are they suing now? The child is 6 years old and they love her. Oops. At least it wasn't a black baby! Seems racist not wanting an Asian baby. Also ungrateful.
