Pardon me (het single mother by choice) for butting in, but I used a known donor and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. It's not awkward at all. My five year old has met his donor and we exchange phone calls and emails the same way we would with any friend of the family. He has even met some of his half siblings and I have other mothers to reassure me about little genetic quirks our kids share through KD.

I'm not a spammer, but if you google "known donor registry" and use a bit of common sense, then you can find out more about another alternative than going through a bank or asking friends and friends of friends.

You don't need a doctor to do the insem, but it's only fair to covor the donor's travel expenses if he's the one doing the travelling.

I tried the "friend of a friend" route first and there is still some awkwardness when I run into potential donors that didn't work out even after all these years and the complete lack of hard feelings on my part.
