So...I finally gave up on finding a donor with my ethnicity because there were so few in our area. I'm Caucasian but Italian and there is a particular "look" I was hoping to find but never did. Well, DH has dark hair and fairly dark skin for a white guy, and his father has pretty dark skin and dark eyes. DH got blue eyes. Our donor is 1/2 Mexican and although her skin tone was light-medium, her mother's and brothers have dark skin. And she has brown eyes like me. So we thought there was a chance the children would look more similar to me. Here we are with 2 very light skinned, blond and blue eyed children. One twin's hair is very fair and almost reddish. If you really stretch it, you can say they look like they belong in our family, but truly they don't. And they sure don't look like there is even a tiny bit of Mexican in them but genetically they are 25%! They don't resemble DH either. I think they must look like the donor's father's side (he has blue eyes and is European). So...make sure that the donor's parents and grand parents also have the same coloring, because things do skip a generation. If there is any Caucasian or some other type of Asian blood (Chinese or Japanese, for example) in the family tree of the donor, it could show up as a surprise.
