hello everyone,TL;DR do you on any level favor your own genetic child?

I am a young adult woman who likes women. The further I get in life without being romantically captivated by a man, the more I'm doubting the 'traditional' path is for me. The main inconvenience with this is that I do want to have children and have a family but am worried about the logistics of it.

If me and my wife both have a child from the same donor (or a diff donors) I'm worried that there won't be that certain genetic cohesion in our family. I'm worried that I will subconsciously have a stronger attachment to the child I carry, and she would to the child she carries.

I guess I feel like although it may not be who I am, that somehow it's important to have the m f cohesion in the baby. And how special it would be for a baby to tie you two together genetically. To have her this and her(his) that. I just wonder how lesbians in perhaps certain indigenous cultures, where there was space for them were fulfilled in this way. I feel like there must be a way! Even if it is currently forgotten from the mainstream knowledge.

Oh also I want to come right out and say just like I believe humans have no future on mars, so too I believe there is no future in same sex genetic reproduction. Sorry (to myself I guess) but that is not an area I feel comfortable leaving up to artificial Frankenstein-esque experiments. Feel free to disagree with me.
But anyways do you favor your genetic child? Or do you know where I might be able to find more info about this topic?
