Looking for a sperm donor
« on: 05 Jun 15, 06:13:pm »
Hi, we are Shannon and Jake and we are looking to have our first child with the help of a sperm donor.

We have been together for more than twelve years and married for six of those years, and we have often discussed having children over that time. When we first got together in our late teens we were both women, and remained in a lesbian relationship for nearly a decade before Jake transitioned to become a man. So, we have known since we got together that our parenting journey would include a sperm donor, as Jake obviously does not produce sperm! We are happy and comfortable with this and are looking for the right donor to help us fulfil our dreams of parenthood. We would like to have at least two children.

We don't have many requests for our donor in terms of appearance, interests, sexual orientation, marital status, etc. Our biggest concern is that we want to welcome a child into our lives and experience parenthood to its fullest, and our vision of that does not include a coparenting role from our donor. We would, however, greatly value a donor's contribution to our life, and feel that it's important for our child(ren) to know their donor when they feel ready to ask those questions. It will never be a secret that they were made possible by sperm donation, and we would encourage a relationship between any siblings outside of our family as well.

If you think we might be a good match please get hold of us and let's chat.  ^-^

Not my thing but for others who may be interested, you may want to say what part of New Zealand you live in.

We live in Auckland but we don't mind where in New Zealand the sperm comes from!   :D
