THE GIRL WITH 3 BIOLOGICAL PARENTS

Alana Saarinen had the DNA of about 3 people. Alana was born through an infertility treatment called cytoplasmic transfer. Her mom Sharon was trying to have a baby for over 10 years.

Basically the cytoplasm (the gel-like substance inside the cells membrane) of a donor woman’s egg was transferred inside Sharon’s egg and then later fertilized with Sharon’s husbands sperm. The cytoplasm contained mitochondria so DNA was transferred into the developing child. This resulted in Alana having DNA from 3 people. 

Although Alana has DNA from a 3rd woman, she doesn’t consider her, her mom.

I just want a guy best friend who secretly adores me and wants to hold me and punches his dude friend for saying something mean about me. Is that too much to ask for?

Please people do not use the ‘wake me up when September ends’ kind of jokes. Billy Joel’s dad died on September 1st, and Billy Joel ran home from the funeral and said that line to his mom when she tried talking to him. I know it’s not meant to be mean but just think of young Billy Joel okay?

Ask me questions pretty please
