We received a letter from our sperm bank today, telling us that our girls' open donor (and the intended donor for our next baby) died in a motorcycle accident recently. We are saddened and shocked and still mulling things over.


  1. OH MY GOSH ! That is TERRIBLE. I think I would feel shocked as well.
    Thing is....I'm thinking this could be a good thing too. Now you can say...ya, we wanted you to have that ability to connect with 1/2 of your DNA, BUUUUUUT, he died in a motorcycle crash.

    Our donors profile said that he had been compared to the looks of Patrick Swayze. So now I'm just going to tell them that their donor daddy died. Sorry. we had EVERY intention of hooking up later so that you could meet him. not going to happen...ours was closed..but the kids don't know that :)

    Still. That sucks.

  2. Oh my gosh. What a shock! I am so sorry. This must be really hard for you to process right now.
