It's been really helpful reading all your posts and the process towards trying DE to be a mother. I have a question for those of you who've used a known donor.
I've got strong feelings (for myself) that I want to have a known donor. I am single, using a sperm donor already, and have found it enormously helpful that the clinic I use for sperm has online (downloadable) discussions with the sperm donors talking about why they choose to donate etc. The physical characteristics aren't my biggest concern, but the person who donates and their reasons for donating are very important to me....knowing a bit about them and their personality.
If you've used a known donor, could you let me know how easy it was to find one and how it went in terms of getting to know them ? I don't have the flexibility to use someone I know (all my friends are the same age as me !). I assume I'll be using a clinic but I would like them to be open identity (which my sperm donor is) and I'm not sure how common that is.
Thanks in advance for any info
