Women's Fiction

A mom, a dad, a baby...and another dad.

Laurie and Alan are expecting, again. After two miscarriages, Laurie was afraid they'd never be able to have a child. Now she's cautiously optimistic — the fertility treatment worked, and things seem to be different this time around. But she doesn't yet know how different.

Jack can't seem to catch a break — his parents are on his case about graduating from college, he's somehow dating two girls at once, and he has to find a way to pay back the money he borrowed from his fraternity's party fund. The only jobs he is qualified for barely pay enough to keep him in beer money, but an ad for the local sperm bank gives Jack an idea.

Laurie and Alan's joy is shattered when their doctor reveals that Laurie was accidentally impregnated by sperm from a donor rather than her husband. Who is Donor 296. And how will their family change now that Donor 296 is inarguably part of it?

Re: Expecting

I'm sorry that you had to go through your miscarriages, but
I'm also happy that you were able to carry your Son through
to term!! As you stated, you also have a wonderful Daughter
through adoption, which wouldn't have taken place, were it
not for the loss of those 2 babies. Due to health problems,
my Doctor informed me that I was not able to have children,
and not to get pregnant, because of the amount of
medications I needed to take, and other reasons. Throughout
my life, I went through private pity parties, because I
always wanted to have a lot of children, but also felt
relief at times, because of other reasons. Now that I'm
older, I still have those same feelings at times, knowing
that I could have been a Grandmother now. Yes, I could have
adopted, but I was going through a lot of problems with my
health, and my Husband would have been saddled with a lot of
the raising of the kids, which wouldn't be fair. Be
thankful for the kids you have, and Thank God for your
blessings!!
