Thanks for sharing. If gay people are going to be parents, they need to recognize the needs of their straight children, and do their best to meet them. That you've connected with other people in the same boat shows that you're not alone. Your relationship with your parents was "still happy and loving." I hope that's still true today. I hope sharing this story lets other children of anonymous sperm donors know they are not alone, either.
