What a wonderful post. Yes. Yes to it all. Yes.


Amazing post, my friend! I often worry about what my child will think of all this donor stuff and I always come to the same conclusion: I have no control over it, but I can love her like crazy and be open and honest with her and hope she'll understand!
And your brother - wow. Deep and real. ((( hugs)))


What a beautiful post. When your children are older, sharing this with them will make all the difference, I am sure.


This is beautiful, Sarah. Love!


I have no words for how much this post touched me and speaks to me. I am bookmarking this post so I can come back to this again in the future.

I know the day your children reads these words, they will come to a better understanding of how they came to be.

And thank you for sharing the complete Frost poem. I realized I have never read it in whole as so many people only quote the last verse.

It is what it is

Lovely, heartfelt, and poetic. I hope there was some healing in putting this down and getting it out. So much catharsis in writing.


See....there's a reason I keep hanging around. This post just stopped me in my poignant and beautifully written.


Great post, Sarah. I've been thinking about loss, birth, adoption, and miracles so your post really resonated with me. I am going to write more about the subject when I have a little more time.

Have a great vacation.



What a wonderful, thought-provoking post!

I love this post. It's beautifully written. I've had some of the same wonderings...what will my baby think when he learns he was a donated embryo? I want him to feel special...CHOSEN. But I'm sure he will have many thoughts as he learns the facts. And like you, if I'd had my own genetic child, I wouldn't have him, a thought I can't bear. So many "what ifs" to contemplate.

I can tell you that the road less travelled may have a few more twists and turns but it's the sweetest road you'll ever go down.


I love reading your blog.


What a great post. I have always loved that poem but haven't read it in years.

It is true what you say about our children's origins, but lately I worry about that less and less. I know the time will come and come again where it needs to be dealt with by me and our children, but I currently feel it will be just one of those things in life - like boyfriends and difficult teachers and spilled ice cream cones.

Not on Fire

As a DE Mom, I feel it too. I would also like to say that I think that it is okay to be disappointed that you didn't have the easier path. It is not rejecting your current family if you wish they could have come without so much pain. You are right that you don't want to get stuck there, because we cannot change it. But I think that it is necessary to grieve on the path to acceptance.

There is so much I want to say- to share with you. Maybe when return from vacation? Maybe by phone? This entry touched my heart like no other. You are going to be one amazing mother, sweetie.


Beautiful, beautiful post. Thank you for thinking it and having taken the chance to share it.



Thank you for sharing. Realising that there may be a possibility down the line of using a sperm donor instead of my own swimmers brought me to your post and I have gained a whole new perspective on using donors. Thank you.
