I know that others have posted this request, I believe to no avail. But I will try again. Our KD is searching for info and support for him and his wife, to normalize their feelings, to help them discuss and distill the important issues. They have “Mommies, Daddies, Donors, Surrogates,” but this book is not from the donors perspective.
As more and more families are created this way, I become more and more frustrated by the lack of information and support. Must I write a book myself?? I’m seriously thinking about it.
Why oh why doesn’t a book or even a friggin article exist?
Where can KD and The Wife go for support? Any help would be so appreciated. It may even influence their decision.
If anyone has written an article or even a few pages about this, or even if your story (including the donor perspective and feelings both the scary, doubtful and the altruistic happy ones) is written down somewhere…point me to it! Email it to me!
I think The Wife is having fears and what about our babies, and will we be too close, this freaks me out, what will our kids call their kids, OMG someone else will use my husband’s sperm kind of feelings. I am assuming this, or course, because it is how I would feel. I think they need to know this is normal, and I think they need to hear other people’s stories, not just the good parts, but the whole process. How are donors and their partners okay with this crazy stuff? How is it difficult, scary, wonderful? This need not come from a KD, but at least include some of KD/KD’s partner’s issues.
KD has been searching online to no avail.
So I ask you, by blogging friends, and lurkers…HELP!!
Really. Thank you.
