Are there any moms out there who conceived their child with an anonomous sperm donor?

My daughter who is 12 was conceived that way. Just curious to see how your children handle the news or if you have kept that truth from them and why.

  • I actually tried to conceive my daughter using an anonymous donor and before I did, I talked to a friend of mine who was conceived that way and she didn't have one problem with it at all. She was told around 10 I think and she had been raised by two parents who loved her very much so she says she honestly doesn't feel like she has voids in her life or questions or anything. She has really accepted that her father couldn't have kids (chemo) and they wanted to be parents...the best route for their family was to buy a college kids swimmers! She says it just like that.

  • My husband's aunt's girlfriend did that so they could have a baby. I'm not sure what they've told him, if anything...but he's about 13 now so he must know SOMETHING by now.
