As I mentioned in a previous post (see Donor Children), when I was 21 I was a sperm donor in the Monash IVF program down in Melbourne. As of January 2008 my donations had been used to make 16 children for 11 different families. The first birth that resulted from my donations was a daughter in January 1999. I realised the other day that she would have turned 13 this year. Whereever she is I hope she had a great birthday and really enjoys her teens it is a great time with so many new things to experience. I still wish there was a way of checking up on all my kids to see how they are all doing and what they are up to.
My fourth oldest, a daughter, was also born in January. She was born in 2000 so she would have just turned 12 this year and my youngest child, also a daughter, was born in February 2006 and so will be turning 6 this month.
So over all, as of today I have 9 girls and 7 boys. The eldest is a girl who is 13, the next are two girls and a boy who are 12, the next is a boy who is 11, then two boys, a girl and twins (a boy and a girl) who are all 10, then two girls who are 8, then a girl and two boys who are 7, then my youngest who is currently 5 but who is turning 6 this month. So keep well all of you, and once again happy birthday to number 1 and 4 and a special happy birthday to my youngest.
