This post over at Offbeat Families really spoke to me. When people ask me how I feel about having been conceived using donor sperm, I tell them that it assures me that my parents wanted me even more than I knew…that they went to extraordinary lengths to have me. This poster says it beautifully in the last two paragraphs of her post. Though neither my parents nor my wife and I had to go “all the way” to IVF, the sentiment is the same.
“She will know how much we wanted her, our precious result of a mad science experiment gone wonderfully right.”
