Donor conception has always been something that i knew about and this was thanks to the amazing book my parents made for my and read to me from I was only 2 years old. I want to share the first page from the book with you guys in the hope that can inspire people to make something similar in their family.
This book was created to tell you the story of how you came to be, of our many years of childlessness and the sometimes very difficult decisions this demanded. Our wish is that this book should help to tackle these problems while you are still a small child and make the questions that it will create easier to ask. You must never doubt that you were the most wanted child in the world.
“For a long time, the wound continued to burn. Many a traveller
Siddhartha had to ferry across the river who was accompanied by a
son or a daughter, and he saw none of them without envying him,
without thinking: “So many, so many thousands possess this
sweetest of good fortunes — why don’t I? Even bad people, even
thieves and robbers have children and love them, and are being
loved by them, all except for me.”Siddhartha, by Hermann Hesse
