The other thread on storing vials reminded me about my little dilemma.
We have 4 vials of sperm from our retired anonymous donor at our old AI clinic, our storage is up, and we would have to pay $250 to keep it another year. We have 3 healthy beautiful boys, almost 5, 3.5, and 1.5, and are definitely not feeling the urge to have another baby right now.
Also, though our 3 children are from this donor, we have the feeling that if we did have more children, we would want to use another donor. Not that we weren't satisfied with him, our 3 boys are healthy and amazing, but when we planned on having children we were hoping for darker children. I have always seen myself parenting a rainbow of kids. Our donor is bi-racial, as I am, but both myself and my partner(who is white) birthed 2 very fair children from this sperm(Our oldest "passes" for white, the middle is darker, obviously not white, and the babe has blond curly hair and blue eyes, def. "passes" as white). But there is the draw of knowing that we have this sperm which from which we got our children and would never be able to get again if we got rid of it and changed our minds.
Lastly, our sperm is currently living in Boston, our old home, but now are in oregon, and aren't sure of what are options are to move it closer, or what. I want to try and sell it, but it's been away from CCB(where we bought it from) for over 4 years. Has anybody else been in this situation? What did you do?
