« An Ungrateful Child | Main | I Stand Corrected »

It's a huge decision. I'm a big believer in "you don't regret the kids you have." Best of luck as you make the journey.


Congratulations on making a decision!

As hard as things have been around here lately, I definitely don't regret the kids I have. They are worth it and I'm lucky to have them. I'd do anything for them.

Lastly, I don't know how old you or your husband are but my husband turns 55 in June and I don't happen to think it's irresponsible of him to have kids at this stage of his life. Your husband's best friend is entitled to his opinion but he shouldn't be surprised that others don't share it!


Congrats on moving ahead!


No, you certainly don't regret the kids you have, and I imagine it's a million times more true for you, since you work so hard to have them.


I don't think it's unfair as long as the child is brought up by parents who love him/her. ASSuming it's a lifespan concern, no one knows how long they'll live. A person who had a child at 30 could drop dead at 41, while someone who has a child at 50 could live to be 96.

Your "everything is good right now" dilemma for having a second sounds a lot like ours for having our first. Nothing is predictable or controllable, though, as you've discovered with DD and we've discovered with Amelia, and yet there's an awful lot of good going on most of the time anyway.

Good luck!


We sort of toyed with the idea of a known egg donor, but ended up having an anonymous donor (also due to laws in Europe). So it is interesting reading about your process, it gives a whole new dimension to egg donation (for me at least!).

I am completely at ease with our anonymous donor. Although I would like to know more, so many things are uncontrollable anyway. I see that in my sister's two daughters, never could there be more different sisters than those two.

Glad that you are moving forward though!
