Where did I really come from?
How do you tell your kids this story? Do you tell them at all? And, if you do, what exactly do you tell them?
Donor Conception Network also has some interesting materials on their website, including the transcript of a focus group discussion that they held with young people who had been conceived through donor conception. In this interview they ask the kids what language they think parents should use to tell their kids about how they were conceived. Seventeen year old Sam says, “I just think that they should just use big, science words as early as possible just start, just have them grow up with the scientific terms from an early age, even if they don't understand them at first, then they will always be used to them.”
Today is the 5th Annual Blogging for LGBT Families Day. What a great idea! I love a good blog. The best ones, I find, seem to take you on a bit of a journey through argument and opinion into easygoing chit chat followed by a quick tour of the author’s family album. If you are up for a good read, you can find a list of all contributors to this Blogging Day here.
