During one of my initial appointments I had asked how I express my ‘wants’ in a sperm donor. I was told a simple email would suffice and to send it to her (Penny), and that she would match me as best she could, as she knew them and would try and match to make a good family dynamic.
I procrastinated big time on this email, as let’s face it – it was probably the single most weirdest email that I ever had to write. I mean, how do you even start that? Not to mention what do you put in the subject line. Crazy town.
Procrastination on the writing of the email did not mean that I procrastinated the thinking about it and I had already had a few characteristics in mind.
Not wanting to be greedy, I only had a few prerequisites. If I have to do this alone, or if I am lucky enough for it to be successful, I want the child to look as much like me as possible.
So in the interest of telling it like it is here is the exact email I sent:
Thank you for your email and for sending me your preference regarding the donor profile. I am sure I will match you most appropriately 🙂
I will be seeing you tomorrow!!!
