Flash forward several years . . .What do you tell your son or daughter who was conceived with some sort of technological assistance about where babies come from, specifically about where he or she came from?As IUI seems more and more to be indicated for us (at least from our layman's perspective) we've been thinking about this question and are in fact having second thoughts about it for this reason. Alethea in particular is troubled by this. She read a poem a mother had written to her child that was a prenatal loss that included the line, "conceived in love," compared that in her mind to, "conceived in a doctor's office" or "conceived in a test tube" and really didn't like the connotations. I myself am wondering where the line between what one can do and what one should and should not do is, much of this technology sure feels like trying to do God's role ourselves.I know we aren't the first people to wrestle with this and would appreciate hearing your experiences and perspectives.Thanks,- Joe
