My Doctor Said "Donor", Now What?

I didn't grow up dreaming of using a donor to have my children. 

After our second failed IVF cycle, my doctor brought up the idea of using a donor and I was a hard no. I would NEVER use someone else’s genetics to create a child.

But... after lots of research, soul searching and facing my fears... we decided to take the leap and we now have two beautiful donor conceived girls.
