OK I redoing this to beable to choose more than one....forgot that could be the case.

Here is my original message.

Just thought it would be nice to see the diversity here. We are in the process of adopting or daughter through the fost/adopt program....

Thanks for changing this! I voted kids from a prior relationship (DP's previous marriage) and insemination.

Glad to hear it, Henry's Mom! Sometimes I feel like the only one going that route... I know it's not for everyone, but there are so many benefits to a known donor situation! Our donor is a dear friend, an 'uncle' to our child who we see at least weekly... I feel really blessed to have him in our lives.

Our two little guys (now 23 days old!!!!!) are here thanks in part to an annonymous donor whose sperm we used for the insemination.

Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 4, 5, 7, 8, 11 & 11) in a small house with a lot of love.
