As I've said before, I intend to tell my kids (fewer choices due to age, decision to widen donor pool by not restricting blood type, etc.), but I do acknowledge that there are people with cultural and religious backgrounds that make it unwise for them to reveal their child's donor origin, and even Donor Conception Network agrees with that. The mechanics of telling are much, much more difficult, however, and with my children still toddlers, I'm still mapping my course and looking for resources.
Anonymous PP, I respect your experience and agree with most of your points, but when you write on such a sensitive topic, there is an extra premium on tact and posting anonymously can reinforce the impression that you're flinging a dialectic Molotov cocktail instead of trying to contribute to a civil discussion.
