A Donor Conceived Young Adult’s Perspective

For years I’ve been listening to the voices of the donor conceived. I’ve learned a lot from them. These voices have evoked both hope and fear; strength & sleepless nights. We’ve heard from the donors and the off-spring they’ve created. We have yet to hear the mothers perspective. I’ve written a memoir—capturing my journey through the uncharted territory of donor linked families. I’ve even secured a literary agent (a successful, well respected one). However, according to my agent, publishers don’t want to take on projects written by those who don’t have a strong social media presence (as in, the likes of 100,000+ following). The media has done a brilliant job covering two sides of this billion dollar industry—that being, the donors and the off-spring they’ve created. Personally, I think it’s high time the voices of the mothers be heard. Embedded in this blog you’ll find the latest article written by a donor conceived young adult. It’s poignant and beautifully written—it’s a good read. Perhaps there will come a time in which all sides of the equation are represented. In the meantime, I will carry on writing, with the hope that one day my words will be read.
