Do you want your children to be the same race?

I'm in an inter-racial marriage. My husband and I got pregnant no problem with our 5 year old. Since then DH has had some medical problems so we are going to have to go with a donor. We are having trouble finding a donor who is the same race as DH. I want my kids to be the same mix...that they really are DH's kids. Anyone else feel this way?

  • I would want them to be the same race, especially if you don't plan on telling them when they are older that you had to use a sprem donor. That could create alot of uncomfortable questions from a little one, lol.

  • Does your husband have a relative or friend you could ask?

  • I would probably feel the same way especially if you don't ever plan on telling them that one was a sperm donor. Maybe try going to whatever country DH is from and going to a sperm bank there?
