When the Fantasy Doesn’t Match the Reality

My best friend in the entire world is adopted and I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. She was adopted in the 90’s as an infant by an extremely loving couple who have given her the world. Not to mention they are well off and she’s never in her life had to worry about money or lack of opportunity. She has always known she was adopted and her parents have stayed very neutral about her birth parents towards her. When she was entering her teenage years she started having some behavioral issues, most likely from the lack of…

Conflicted Feelings

I’m not very good at writing and english is not my first language so this may be short. I’m a daughter of a single mother that chose to have a child through sperm donation. I’ve been conscious of this since I was a small child and when I was younger it didn’t bother me much, you can’t miss what you never had right? I am now 19 and this has changed a little bit. I don’t want a father, I don’t need a father, but I want a face, a name, anything, I know nothing. I’ve tried to talk to…

Synchronisity

My partner and I used donor eggs to conceive a baby. Ironically just as our pregnancy was getting started a surprise popped up on my 23AndMe. It turned out that I had an aunt and two uncles I’d never met by way of a grandfather that I’d also never met or even seen a picture of. It turned out I didn’t even know the name [he went by]. My first instinct was to ask her for pictures of my grandfather. He looks a lot like me, and I only look like my mother in my family. It was an interesting…

Now I know

I’m a woman of a certain age, newly married with 4 biological children of my own. My amazing husband deeply desires a child of his own but my pregnancies have resulted in loss. We currently are considering using a donor egg but something deep inside felt uneasy. I found myself wondering how this will truly affect me, our child and my relationship with my husband. I wanted to know how the children felt about the non biological parent, whether they were happy or hurt and angry. Would my child accept me as their mother or just some woman who gave…

Silently Longing

I have known for most of my life that my parents used donor sperm to conceive me, but we never spoke of the fact that I’m donor conceived after the initial conversation. To my parents, it probably appeared that I had zero interest in it. But what they didn’t know is that even as a young kid I had picked up on the fact that they weren’t very comfortable with the topic. If I was asked if I would ever want to know who my biological father was if I could, my answer was, “nope, I’m not curious.” I didn’t…

Step Daughter Born through Egg donation

Egg Donation…funny term..when I think of the word donation, I think of giving something away for free and not profiting monetarily. I am a step mother to a now 4 year old girl that was born through egg donation. Her birth mom was too old to have anymore children at 46….my now husband was 10 years younger than her. He married her while she was 8 months pregnant with his son that was born stillborn due to the umbilical cord. She couldn’t get pregnant after that and it was his mission to have a child of his own (she had…

Sister of unknown newly found adopted out sister

I recently discovered I have a half sister! I was thrilled and excited to meet her and at first she was reacting with the same enthusiasm. We realized that she was conceived by my father’s infidelity and her birth mom chose to give her up for adoption. Unfortunately, my father can not remember “the details” of this situation or her name. We connected through 23 and me through my children first, then I took the test and we came back as half siblings. I was over joyed to have a sister and we met and it was as if we…

No Title

I ended up donating my sperm a few years ago around the same time my daughter and her girlfriend decided they wanted a baby so they got donated sperm. A couple years later they wanted to figure out who the biological father is so they do the whole DNA stuff process and I remembered I had donated my sperm around the same time my daughter got donated sperm so I decided to get a DNA check myself and when the results came in it turned out that the baby was mine I was so fucking disgusted because thats my own…

First time Polynesian Donor “Mother”

Aloha Kakau, So This is my first time experience doing this but at this point I am ashamed to admit it but I hit a financial struggle in my life right now and while i do want children it is not possible for me to do so right now because of the financial reason and i haven’t found a “perfect mate”, I had my first ever ultrasound done yesterday (to which i was very nervous about because i am “pure”). The ultrasound was a painful experience but i am still going to pursue the donation progress. My only concern though…

Beware of Governments Bearing Gifts

If you’re donor conceived and living in Victoria, Australia, you’ve probably heard the government has passed a new law. Once you turn eighteen, you can apply for the identity of your donor, even if he donated under the condition of anonymity. You may be considering taking advantage of this. Before you jump in, please consider how it might play out. You contact VARTA, and after the mandatory counselling, they send a registered letter to your donor. Now things get interesting. Let’s assume your donor has normal social skills. If so, he’s probably been married for twenty or more years and…

I am Alive

Without sperm donation, I would not be here, and my sister would not be here. I would NOT be alive. My parents told me when I was 18 that I was donor conceived. When they told me, I was incredibly shocked, but I realize that without my sperm donor I would not be here. After the initial shock went away things went back to normal in our house. My dad is still MY DAD! I am not a victim because I am donor conceived. I am alive because I was donor conceived. My mom and dad were put in a…

I think about her every day

I am an 18-year-old female and I was conceived using an egg donor. My dad is my biological dad and I admire him beyond words. I’m not at all close with my mom. My parents told me they used an egg donor when I was 10-12 years old. That’s a guess; I honestly don’t remember how old I was. Every day I wonder about my biological mom. Does she wonder about me? Do we look similar? Do we have similar personalities, likes, and dislikes? Do I have half-siblings? Do I have grandparents that know about me? That barely scratches the…
