We have spoken with donor parents who live in different family constellations. We would also love to hear from you if you feel like sharing your story.

Donor parents’


The Silver family

How do you in the best way tell your children that they are donor-conceived? Please meet JR Silver who in this blog post will share his experience with using his own children’s book to tell his son of 4 how he was conceived using donor sperm.

Lina and Katharina

My name is Lina, I am 28 years old and I am from Germany. In 2015, I got to know my wife Katharina, 33 years old. At the end of 2016, we moved in together, got a dog and got married in 2018. We quickly agreed that we wanted to have children together – because why should we be denied of that happiness just because we are two women?
