It is a tough pill to swallow, coming to terms with it. I know when I was told that I only had two options which was either sperm donor or adoption, I didn’t know where to turn. But the more I have spoken to people and conversations I have had on this journey, I have realised that I would bring that baby up to be my child and I would be the father. That is why you need to remember at the end of the day, nothing else matters, you just need to stay focused, have a good mindset, that’s it.

How to accept egg or sperm donors?

Infertility affects both male or female reproductive system. When we get to know that the only option to become parents is either going through ivf or it is needed gamet adoption, we have difficulties to accept it.
