Children by Donors

Deciding to have a child with the help of a donor is a difficult decision. As described in the donor sperm & donor egg pages, there are many concerns future parents may have.

One of the issues that frequently arises once the child is no longer a baby is how to share the information with him or her.

Some parents choose to have their children grow up knowing their biological background, some choose a point in time that seems "the right time" to tell the child & others choose never to tell the child.

If you are contemplating what to do or have made your decision, here are some resources that may help.
