Kiara Rae Schuh, 25, from Chicago is a donor-conceived person from a solo motherhood journey. The youngest of 2 siblings, her mother now seen as a pioneer was career-focused and found herself in the predicament of wanting to start a family without being in that established relationship, with time no longer on her side the sperm donor option was the only logical option. The way she raised her children to be able to process their own identities is a testament to her character in a time when there were no real known guidebooks on how to navigate such circumstances.

In November 2022, Kiara released the book “Chosen Family” which explores her story, her views, and the relationships she has created along the way with her donor and currently 23 other half-siblings.
