Tennessee teen finds her egg donor mom

NASHVILLE — Janet Schreibman read "Goodnight Moon" and "Curious George" and all the usual children's books to her daughter, a thoughtful little girl who always wanted another story.

So her mother told her one, a small, simple piece at a time, about the child's unusual conception.

Sometimes mommies and daddies need help if they want to have a baby, Schreibman would say. Children are created in all different ways. One way is called in vitro fertilization.

Brittan Gilmore was about 7 when she put it all together, confronting her mother anxiously instead of climbing into bed. "Are you my real mom?" she asked.

Our partners at The Tennessean have more on the story.
