I know, it's not very romantic, is it? But that's AI for you, married or not - you'd like to think of the conception of your children being a beautiful, spiritual moment between two people who love each other, but I think it's rarely that. More often than not even when children are the result of sex, even then it's probably more "this had better work this time" or "oh my god I hope I don't get pregnant" or "let's just get this over with so I can go back to sleep". So as with most things in life, that "magical moment" is probably rare.
So this random guy, whose name I may or may not know sixteen years from now, did such a simple thing, that made such an incredible thing possible for me and untold other women. I don't kid myself that he thought about anything other than the money. But that's ok. However you get there, you know?
So Donor, wherever you are, I appreciate you. I hope someday you know the joy of a good relationship and your own children. I hope you wonder about your offspring and I hope you get to meet them. They're pretty awesome.
