White couple stunned after mum gives birth to Asian daughter after IVF mix-up


 A white couple who had an Asian baby are suing a fertility clinic after a DNA test proved the dad was not the child’s biological father, a lawsuit claims  Kristina Koedderich and Drew Wasilewski, who went through IVF, claim they noticed years after their daughter was born that she had “Asian features”  According to a lawsuit, a subsequent DNA test in 2015 confirmed there was “0% probability” that Drew, 49, was the father of the child   The court documents also say the New Jersey parents discovered their child had a blood disorder associated with Southeast Asian heritage, reports MSN news    The pair, who are now divorced, spent $500,000 (£405,000) on treatment at the Reproductive Medicine and Science at Saint Barnabas in 2012   The couple claim the clinic’s alleged negligence caused “the breakdown” of their marriage, reports the New York Post  Last month Superior Court Judge Keith Lynott ordered the clinic to hand over a list of men who donated sperm at the time they used the facility  The parents want to find out about the six-year-old’s genetic history in case she wants a relationship with her biological father when older   Ms Koedderich said in her deposition her ex-husband cried when he learnt the news, reports NJ com.  She said: “I was crying. And I called [IRMS] the next day and asked how — could this be possible? Could this really be possible?”  They are also seeking to know if Drew’s sperm was mistakenly used in another treatment  They are seeking unspecified damages.   A spokesperson for Saint Barnabas Medical Center said to The Patch they don’t comment on litigation matters
