More info on Donor #9 MWSBHi again,
I am new to the board and so I hope that I am posting correctly. :-) Anyway, I thought I would mention that my partner and I are a mixed-race couple. I am Irish-American and she is African-American. We both used donor #9 and the babies all look so different from one another. Our first child, who I carried, is blond, blue-eyed, and as fair as they come--even though donor#9 is bi-racial and is of medium brown complexion. We thought for sure that we had gotten the wrong sperm. One of the twins is lighter complexioned and looks just like his mama. The other twin is a toasty caramel color, but looks Indian (India-Indian) with dark, very fine, almost straight hair and fine features. Everyone who sees him thinks he's Indian. I've seen several pictures of other Donor #9 babies and they are all beautiful. In some I can see similarities between the children, big eyes, curly hair, etc--and, in others, it is hard to see the connection (at least from the pictures). I just thought I would share a little.
