Telling their son about donor conception

Despite having their sons in the secretive era of donor conception in the1980’s, Kerry and her husband Greg had concerns that their story would come out later and so chose to be very open with their sons and their extended family from the start. They are so glad they did as a recent medical diagnosis requiring a bone marrow transplant would have revealed the secret at a very traumatic time.

Kerry used a children’s book to explain their story to their sons. She also needed to repeat the story whenever her children forgot what they had been told. She is pleased with their decision and wouldn’t do it any other way. Her sons, now in their twenties, are well adjusted and comfortable and couldn’t love their Dad more.
