She posts ad to find son's dad

A woman who had a one-night stand in Perth, Australia, is searching for the father of her baby on classifieds website Gumtree after she got pregnant.

In 2011, Miss Bianca Fazey, 25, was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome and was told she would probably never be a mother, reported Australia's The Daily Mail.

She then had a one-night stand last April, only to discover later that she was pregnant, reported UK's The Metro.

"I was at my wits' end," she told the Daily Mail.

"I tried finding him for months and felt pressured by a friend who was adamant I don't give up despite exhausting all avenues."


She only knows that the man's name is Jeremy, that he is in his twenties and from Morley, a suburb in Perth.

And he has brown hair and blue eyes.

After a five-month search, she decided to post an ad on Gumtree - to no avail.

Her son Logan Fazey was born in January this year with complications.

Doctors spent 30 minutes trying to resuscitate Logan immediately after he was born.

Miss Fazey, a graphic design student, said she received a barrage of hate mail after posting the online ad.

Some trolls called her a bad mother and expressed doubts about the future prospects for the child. Others even urged her to have an abortion.

She even received messages from guys telling her they would be the father or pretending to be Jeremy.

She said: "I'm so appalled at comments that I am a bad mother and 'God help my child'.

"It makes me sick that people can judge so quickly off something that is 500 words long," she said on her Facebook page.

"I love this beautiful boy with all my heart and I am a fantastic mother. He is strong, smart, happy and very, very loved!"

She hopes the father of the child will come forward and be part of his son's life, The Metro reported.

She said: "I do hope that I can find him and let him know. He can make his own choice.

"But more for the sake of the kid, when he asks questions or wants to find him, I want to be prepared."
