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

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…

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 …

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…

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…

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 …

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…

None of Your F@*#ing Business!

More often then not I get asked “Did you need help to get pregnant?” “Did you have to use IVF?” “Do twins run in your family?” because I have twins.  My initial reaction is to respond “Non-of your F@*#ing business”, but a smarter part of me tells my brain to answer politely even although it really is no ones business how I became pregnant, they are only asking out of shear curiosity and not meaning me any harm or hurt feelings.  But I also always wonder if they would really want to  hear the…

Us DI (Donor Inseminated) Moms Are Not Alone!

I wanted to post part of a response I wrote to a DI mom who contacted me as I feel like it represents how a lot of us moms who have used donor sperm feel.

” we all have things about DI that we are trying in vain to keep a secret from someone in our lives. Personally for me my kids are very young. 20 month twins and a 3 year old, so quite a while until we need to start having the talk about them being Donor inseminated kids. All of my family and friends know about my kids, but my…
