    Jennifer Cramblett and her partner, Amanda Zinkon, looked forward to becoming parents. They went to the Midwest Sperm Bank in Downers Grove, a Chicago suburb, back in 2011.

    They requested sperm from a white donor with blue eyes, because they wanted their child to look similar to them.

    "It was the most amazing feeling to know that I had a child that I was going to be able to raise, to call my own," said Cramblett

    However, that excitement turned to concern when Cramblett, five months pregnant, called the sperm bank requesting the same donor's sperm so Zinkon could also get pregnant.

    That's when they heard the news. The sperm bank gave Cramblett the vials of an African-American donor. She was told the mix-up happened because the sperm bank keeps handwritten records instead of electronic ones, which allowed the donor numbers to be misread.

    "After a moment of panic, oh Lord, everything's changing in me so quickly I knew I had to be strong. I have this child in my stomach," Cramblett said.

    She gave birth in 2012 to a beautiful biracial girl named Payton. However, Cramblett is afraid that raising Payton in their predominately white Uniontown, Ohio community may be challenging.

    "I want her to feel like she has a place with the people she has a place with; White, Black, Asian; whoever she feels comfortable to be around.

    Cramblett and Zinkon are suing, her attorney, Tim Misny, demanding change.

    "We want them to change their procedure and hopefully prevent this from ever happening again," Misny said.

    The couple spent thousands of dollars for the donor's sperm. They're suing for emotional distress and financial loss.

    "This is a life you are creating. You have to take all the measures possible to make sure you get it right," Cramblett said.

    Midwest Sperm Bank has apologized, saying, "We are so very sorry for the mix-up, we would like to refund the cost of your vials."
