Warm and Insightful

Ally generously brings her experiences, questions and insights into every episode - inspiring the listener to think more deeply about what it means to be donor conceived and what it means to use donor conception to grow one’s family. Thank you Ally, for taking the time to produce this podcast!

Used to be good

Now this new season they sound so judgmental and pretentious. How some of this speak about sperm donors, THEIR bio father and half siblings they don’t like is disgusting.
