This blog is for anyone who’s been touched by donor conception, anyone who’s grappled with a secret, anyone who’s felt like odd man out, anyone who wants to be a better parent and anyone who simply loves a really good story.
BUT first and foremost, this blog is for my donor conceived daughter. My beautiful girl, who had no say in the manner in which she was conceived and who was deprived of the fundamental right of knowing where all of her DNA came from. May she always remember that it was with the greatest of intentions that I traveled through uncharted territory… may she always remember that what was done, was done for her. This is my real life chronicle of my journey through the murky waters of donor conception and donor related families. Back when I began this journey there were no guidebooks, no data and no professionals with any advice. It was just me and my pen.
I hope my story will help other parents make mindful decisions. I hope my story will improve the lives of the donor conceived and those yet to be conceived. Thanks for reading.
