Searching for your father: How strong is your desire to learn the identity of your father, and what would you wish to learn about him? Would you like to know about possible genetics passed to you, and would you like to know what he is like personally, and why he never sought to find you? How much does it matter, and what aspects of knowing about him matter more than others?
