Bianca Fazey, 25, posted an ad on the classified site Gumtree to find the father of her new baby, Logan Fazey, who doctors spent nearly 30 minutes attempting to resuscitate after birth.
Logan was conceived last April in a one-night stand in Perth, Western Australia. “From what I remember [Logan’s father’s] name is Jeremy… he was handsome, about 5’7ish, in his 20s, brown hair, brown eyes, no tattoos, very friendly, and a lovely gentleman,” said Fazey in the ad.
All Fazey knows about Logan’s father is that he is a fly-in, fly-out worker in his twenties, who she met at the Harlem Wednesdays Night at Amplifier Capitol.
“I tried finding him for months and felt pressured by a friend who was adamant I don’t give up despite exhausting all avenues,” said Fazey.
Not giving up, Fazey posted the ad on Gumtree as a final effort. However, she was discouraged by a myriad of hateful, judgmental comments from other users.
“It was sad to see people saying I should get an abortion, those were the only comments that hurt,” said Fazey.
The ultimate reason she wishes to find Logan’s father is to be ready to answer his questions when he gets older.
“For the sake of the kid, when he asks questions or wants to find him I want to be prepared,” said Fazey. “I do hope that I can find him and let him know, he can make his own choice.”
Fazey was surprised but also excited to find herself pregnant, as she was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome in 2011 and did not believe she would be able to ever have children.
“I couldn’t be happier,” she said. “I am looking forward to holding my little guy and raising him in a loving stable environment.”
