From a couple of other blogs, I heard about a show Oprah was doing on sperm donor conceived children so I DVR'd it (I heart DVR). Anywho, I would not have known about it because I don't watch Oprah. And after watching Oprah, I remembered why I don't watch Oprah - it's just so straight. I know, she has this weird thing going on with her friend Gale (hahaha) and I'm not usually one to judge, I love the straights. But come on, she didn't even touch on lesbians using sperm banks...I guess why open that can of worms? She also just seemed dumb and totally clueless in regards to donor insemination. I was thinking, don't they brief her before the show. But it was entertaining if not a little weird and awkward.
And it definitely made us think, ummm, maybe we should have used a known donor. But what's done is done, I'm sure our child (if they wish) will be able to connect with some half-siblings. It was just sad to see some of children grown and seemingly bitter. No offense to single women having children - I think that's great to make the conscious decision to have a child and use a donor. However, I felt most of the kids had issues because they grew up with a single parent and as an only child and to top it all off their "dad" was a sperm donor. Who knows, maybe I think that to make me feel better. It was just sad and I hope it wasn't a very good example of sperm donor conceived children.
