Thinking About Your Child’s Origins

"I still ache to have a genetic child. I thought the feeling would evaporate as soon as [my daughter] was born. Now I think my acceptance of the situation will grow, but it is something that will always be with me."

In the March/April 2011 issue, one mom shared her thoughts on using donor eggs before becoming pregnant and after her first daughter was born. How do your feelings compare with this mom's? If you adopted, how often do you think about this fact? If you and your partner conceived via donor-assisted reproduction, how often do you think about the fact that only one of you has a genetic tie to your child? Frequently, or not at all?
