Grandparents of Donor Conceived Children

I recently read a blog post over at Oliviasview Blog titled “Relative Strangers: what grandparents think about donor conception” and it prompted me to finally write a post myself about the role of Grandparents in the life of Donor Conceived Children.  I

The Law is the Law, Whether We Like It or Not! Sperm, Eggs and A Womb Cannot be Bought in Canada!!!!

Tom Blackwell at the National Post Reports “Illegal purchase of sperm, eggs and surrogacy services leads to 27 charges against Canadian fertility company and CEO”.   Well, Well, Well seems like Canada’s legal system is finally enforcing a law that has been

A Nerve is touched by a blog post “Parenting donor conceived children: Is it different?”

I saw this blog post from OliviasView  called Parenting donor conceived children:  Is it different? several days ago when it popped up in my inbox.  The title certainly intrigued me and usually I read her posts as soon as they get to

About Me
Allison Rouble

Allison Rouble

I am a 41 year old Wife and DI Mom to 3 year old B/G Twins and a 4 year old daughter all born using anonymous donor sperm #BGM 9581 from xytex. I live with my wonderful Husband in Ontario, Canada. I am many things other then a Mom. I am a wicked dreamer, a mild mannered skunk hunter, a no nonsense chef, a lover of a glass of wine, a participating wife and a best friend. I started blogging about my crazy life as a mom to donor conceived kids back in 2009 when my first daughter was just 1 and I was trying for baby #2 (which ended up being twins). Now I write at GENdMOM.com about my life and issues having to do with the world of Donor Gametes, infertility, and the mess it can all sometimes be.

However, I discovered I had more to write about then just being a mom of donor conceived kids, I also found that I got great joy from interacting with others about being a Mom, A Wife, A Women, etc. Most importantly I found an online world of friends and family. Therefore I started a
