View Full Version : Children for Lesbians?
08-19-2008, 08:24 AM
I've been thinking...I am nearing the age of 30, and with my sister recently having a child and with the simple fact that I love kids -- I wonder how will my partner be able to have kids. Meaning...I worry about the whole issue of finding a "donor" without going to a sperm bank. How do you reconcile your Christian beliefs (to those of you who are Christian) with going to a sperm bank and/or finding someone to donate and then let you raise their child. I don't have any males friends at this point who would do something like that because they are all pretty set in their Christian ways -- and/or already married. I'm sure they would not want one of their seed just floating around. At the same token, it bothers me to have to go to a sperm bank where I would not know the person at all. This leads me to wonder if I am just not supposed to have kids.

My son was concieved through AI(artificial insemination) 12 years ago. It's changed alot!
Google CryoBiology, Inc.( in Columbus. OH.) Their website will come up, I think it's the 1st or 2nd one. If you go there, they will tell you how to order sperm vials and store it. Some of the donors have pictures on file or even baby pics now. Their number is 614-451-4375.
That is who I used. It's very reasonable. I had to go through a clinic, but the site will tell you how you don't have to. If yo uhave questions they will talk to you and explain everything.
I got a medical history on my guy, and his sperm of course. Some of the donors leave pics and other things in their files now. Mine didn't, my son wanted me to look and see if he could get a pic of his donor but they could not help me.
Also, save all your info if yo udo it, your baby will have questions some day and it helps if you have answers for them! Good Luck!:D
You can PM me if you have questions.

I don't know a great deal about artificial insemination, however if the issue continues to bother you, you could consider adopting instead. You do lose out on the pregnancy, of course - whether that's a good or bad thing depends entirely on perspective :p - but you would still end up with a child that is very much yours; parentage depends far more on upbringing than biology.
There are issues attached, among other things legal headaches and the likelihood that your child will at some point want to find its biological parents; however it's something to consider. You could change a kid's life forever. :)
