Help searching

I have been told after finding out I was a surrogate baby that my dad and I appeared on an episode of Donahue. I was born in 1982, my name is Anna, my dad was a trauma doctor. Anything you have could help.

I assume you were a baby when you appeared - correct? Do you know any other details?

You can access the main Donahue page here on IMDb - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065335/?ref_=ttep_ep_tt

If you scroll, look for BROWSE EPISODES, then you can click a drop down to view by year.

Once you are at a year, you may be able to find some info, but then could then be used to do some good old internet searching (e.g. Donahue episode surrogate YEAR) which might lead to some other sites that have full topic summaries or other details.

Umm - NVM - found something about a case of a surrogate baby who was born with multiple birth defects and the issues round the case.

@cinefyl​ I was a baby it was when surrogate babies was the new thing I guess. I was with my dad and I have been told he stopped doing interviews when I was three so it had to have been 1982/1985. I was born in Michigan my dad was a Dr so traveling was normal from a young age obviously I wouldn't be able to remember that far back tho lol

@@GsGirl oh my - fascinating. So was he doing interviews about being a trauma doc in general, or about being a surrogate father?

UPDATE - there are some online databases with episode topic but there seems to be a gap in the years 1983-87. Do you have any other details you can think of?
