To PLEASE just adopt a child in need:
I am also donor conceived, and I whole heartedly agree with you. I feel the same pain you do. I hate how everyone talks about how parents want to have a biological connection to the child, and in the same breath, they talk about how that desire warrants DENYING their child the SAME desire to have a connection with one of their biological parents. We are human beings. We are not fertility treatments, procedures, genetic material, donations, or “gifts”. We are not the physical representation of our parents’ desire.
We are not obligated to be thankful for something we neither asked for or consented to.
