From guitar players, to pianists, to painters…SSB is proud of our talented donors! Ross is very intelligent and passionate. When not performing, Ross is typically reserved around those he does not know. However, once he becomes comfortable Ross is a lot of fun with a great sense of humor. Ross is a donor that is kind, loyal and compassionate.
I was, rather, the product of a completely intentional transaction. My father was an anonymous sperm donor. The revelation hit me deeply. An introverted, introspective teen, I internalized her decision to hide the truth as my own shame — shame I still feel today.
In , she met a woman named Beth Hanson on LavaLife, and they fell in love. Collins is now 46, with elfin features and a folksy energy, while the blond, year-old Hanson is quiet and sober-minded. Both are teachers: Collins works in the phys. Ten years ago, they decided to have a baby. The couple spent months mulling over their reproductive options.
The process can look like a seamless way to create a family, and for many, it is. As simple a transaction as sperm donation can seem to be, though, some find it to be stressful or isolating—and because assisted reproductive technology is a relatively new, rapidly developing field, the social and emotional challenges that can arise between the participants in a sperm donation are, for many, uncharted. Even decades after these practices have become common and their intricacies should theoretically be common knowledge, many of those who opt for sperm donation are still consistently surprised by all the ways it can shape—in some cases straining and, in others, enhancing—family dynamics. One such consistently surprised group is made up of infertile men. I shouldn't think this way.
