My wife and I have been together for 3 years, and are celebrating our 1 year marriage anniversary this Winter. We both work from home full time, and recently purchased a home in Central New York. We’re moving in around December, and would like to start trying to conceive around February.

I have a Masters Degree in literature, and currently work as an account manager for a small manufacturing company. My wife has a Masters Degree in Wild Life Management, and works as an endangered species biologist for an environmental consulting firm. We’ve dreamed of starting a family together since we first met, and are so thankful to be at a place in life where we can provide a stable, loving environment for a child.

Our home is already full of love, with a 5 year old yellow lab and 2 cats. We enjoy hiking, craft beer, and stand up comedy (we are lesbian, after all), and have spent most of the pandemic exploring state parks, having bonfires in our backyard, and binging the Haunting of Hill House on Netflix.

We are not interested in co-parenting, and to be honest, we were a bit nervous about the idea of using a known donor at first. However, after researching sperm banks and looking into costs and scandals, we’ve decided it could be in a future child’s best interest (and our own) to look for a donor within driving distance to make insemination easier and more effective, to save a bit of money that can be put towards raising the child rather than just conceiving them, and perhaps most importantly, to ensure that we can use the same donor for a second child a few years down the road.

That being said, we complete understand that donors are graciously volunteering their genes, and may want to know the child they help create. We are more than willing to work out updates and picture sharing, but we want to be very clear that this will be our child, and we will be their parents. The donor will be portrayed to the child as an absolutely wonderful individual who gave their moms the best gift we could ever receive.

We are only looking for AI. Our schedules allow us some flexibility to travel, and we would prefer in person donations. That being said, if a donor is interested but not able to commit to meeting every month, we’d be interested in working out an in person-frozen shipment hybrid. We will pay for genetic testing and to have an attorney draw up a donor agreement. We’d really like to video chat a few times, and even meet the donor in person (at our expense) in advance.

If you’re interested in getting to know us, please reach out. We’re very excited to meet potential donors and see where things go!
