When to tell your children they were donor conceived?… Is the big question.. I know I’m not alone but sometimes it feels like it.
I have to make this decision.. (As well as hubby) but it’s harder for me as it was egg donation.
Some days I think about it more. No one can understand how I feel or will feel when we have to sit our children down & explain to them why, how etc.. I feel like a failure every time I think about it.. What if.. But I know I mustn’t think like this.. I have 2 beautiful children whom I love with all my heart and soul. I feel so very blessed to have been able to have my children as I know the struggle..
So just remember whenever someone says to you how much your child/children are like you, good or not so good take it as a compliment for you never know, they may never get that..

  • Tell them when you feel you are ready, I just hope they are old and mature enough to understand :)


  • Tell them when they are older, you carried them and nourished them, yeah it is dna but they are Your babies


  • It must be a tough decision not something that I had thought about. But don’t put yourself down you are their mother in every way that counts.
