Buying and Selling Eggs, Sperm and Embryo's is a crime here in Canada!!!!

Finally after 8 years of the Assisted Human Reproduction Act coming into play the police are laying down the law and investigating some questionable  practices in the fertility trade in Canada.  The AHRA act clearly states that the exchange of money for Sperm, Eggs, Embryos or the Services for Surrogate Mothers is a crime here in Canada.  Then why have people been receiving money under the guise of such actions.  Last month the RCMP raided an Ontario Agency called the …See More

TMI......And Every Typed Word Felt Great!

Blog posts are usually very organic for me, they pop into my head and I write them rather quickly with spelling mistakes and bad grammar all included. I then go back and fix my mistakes hoping that the post looks polished and well thought out. This post however is taking its time and feels very forced, it is being typed at my kitchen table with my 22 month old son on my lap, my 3 year old playing next to me chatting away about the most inane things and of course what’s a day without Dora…See More

"Go to a few makeup counters and talk to the consultants, they will be a great help. Make sure they start you out slow, a polish(looks like lotion), maybe blush and lip gloss. Don't buy a whole bunch of stuff. The most important thing is making…"

40 Year Old Makeup Virgin

Facts:I am turning 40 in twelve days and I have never worn makeup in my life, okay except for maybe a few unfortunate attempts when I was 14 and angry at the world….black eye liner!Not wearing makeup was never an issue for me, until about a year ago.  I have an increasing case of Vitiligo and it has come up onto my face, gone are the cute little freckles that used to speckle themselves whimsically across my nose and down onto my cheeks. It became very noticeable last summer when I was a bit…See More

I Am the World's Worst Sperm Donor

I came across this story on the THE AWL and I have to say I did not think I was going to be able to finish reading it.  This guy was really pissing me off, how dare he call any children he creates “evil sperm children”!  As a matter of fact reading this story made me feel like puking, but luckily I was able to keep the vomit down and make it to the end where it turns out he was not such a bad guy after all and had some sense of the fact that perhaps he was…See More

23 Sperm Donor Kids and Counting......

As a mom with donor conceived children I have been doing what I can to put the word out there that I am open to finding half-siblings for my children.  I post on my blog and elsewhere the Sperm Donors ID that we used and up until recently I had found one half-sibling on the DSR and another mom contacted me through my blog that she also had a child using Sperm donor BGM 9581 from Xytex.  I was thrilled about this…See More

Dear Donor

Dear Donor,This letter has been 3 years in the making and many times written and erased. It brings me to tears when I think of all I want to say to you and all I would ask if I meet you. It also puts the realization into the fore front that my children, these three beautiful creatures are not just part of me, but part of an unknown! Everyday I look at them and watch them grow I can clearly see me in them, but the other parts, the ones that are so obviously not me, I can only assume come from…See More

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I am a 41 year old Wife and DI Mom to 3 year old B/G Twins and a 4 year old daughter all born using anonymous donor sperm #BGM 9581 from xytex. I live with my wonderful Husband in Ontario, Canada. I am many things other then a Mom. I am a wicked dreamer, a mild mannered skunk hunter, a no nonsense chef, a lover of a glass of wine, a participating wife and a best friend. I started blogging about my crazy life as a mom to donor conceived kids back in 2008 when my first daughter was just 1 and I was trying for baby #2 (which ended up being twins). Now I write at GENdMOM.com about my life and issues having to do with the world of Donor Gametes, infertility, and the mess it can all sometimes be.

However, I discovered I had more to write about then just being a mom of donor conceived kids, I also found that I got great joy from interacting with others about being a Mom, A Wife, A Women, etc. Most importantly I found an online world of friends and family. Therefore I started another blog PandeMommium.com where I write about my nutty life with my 3 kids, and my husband all while trying to maintain some sense of still being a women who has aspirations and desires that go beyond diapers, mac and cheese, treehouse, disney, potty training, well you get the idea!

DNA, Genetics and Half-Siblings are all we have to put the Puzzle Pieces together!

Posted on July 26, 2013 at 7:59pm 0 Comments

Finding half-siblings for my kids has been very important for me, in truth it is why I started blogging, in almost every post I would put our donors number (BGM 9581 by the way) and it is why I joined the DSR (Donor Sibling Registry) before my first was even born.  I feel I have been lucky enough to find two half-sibs. One on the DSR, and one because of my blog.  I know that there are at least 25 reported births as of earlier this year, but…
