Welcome ann, this is certainly not an easy journey. No donor is ever going to be perfect, they can't possibly be. My primary criteria was a tall donor from a tall family since I am 5'11" and hubby is 6'. I wanted to maximize the tall gene and not find the donor who was the rogue tall person in their family.

The donor was about 5'8" and her family was on the taller side. Our son is stupid tall...he's 4 months old and 27 inches tall and weighing in at 19 pounds. He is in the 98th percentile for everything just like my older brother was and he has wide spaced eyes like me. Sometimes genetics are funny things!

Good luck with your decision. Take your time!

Thanks everyone for sharing your stories and for your support. DH and I had some really good talks this weekend and decided that we are going to go for it. At the end of the day, I could care less if the baby had blonde hair, brown hair, red hair, etc. as long as I had our baby!
