Last month I remembered my
Very good question. I didn't know about registries but glad they exist. I know our donor was a first timer but is off and running to do it again. Imagine the horror if our child meets up with a half sibling and falls in love like a bad soap opera then they find out they are related!? EEEP.
I do plan to tell my twins about the donor eggs at some point, in an age appropriate manner on a need basis....I will stock up on the books too, just in case, to have them on hand. I don't want them to find out accidentally or be shocked and angry with me someday because I lied.
For example, my first husband died by suicide. My children were 4 and 6. I have heard terrible stories of kids who were lied to about a parent's death and quite angry later. My kids were always aware of how he died in a TOTALLY age appropriate manner. I mean, at first, I just said that daddy was sick with a disease called depression that affects your mind and makes you hurt yourself, a disease as deadly as cancer or a heart attack. As they got older, I added more to the story as they asked. Maybe that is too much info there :) Sorry
