"My Fears" - Second Submission to International Infertility Film Festival

no. 347

I actually filmed this video for the IIFF before putting the montage together. In summary I am reading about two pages straight out of essay in the Voices of Donor Conception book Behind Closed Doors: Moving Beyond Secrecy and Shame.

I am the only donor conception (with child) piece in the festival that I know of. For other videos submitted please visit:

I really enjoyed your film - it's a lot to think about.

I do wonder if those DC adults you mention are the loud minority. I never thought to wonder what I inherited from my dad (except my wide feet), at least not consciously... maybe that's what happens when you grow up with both bio parents?

Have a happy Passover!

I don't know for sure, but they may be a vocal minority. I guess it is a case of the grass looking greener on the other side. There are many people who preferred their social fathers over their biological fathers. The difference is, they tend to be those who had at least some experience with their biological fathers.

Hearing you speak your own words really made the fears of DI come to life. Thank you for sharing your feelings and your film.

I applaud how open and honest you are with your story.

Eric, thank you for sharing this. Your piece was is so informative and really examines donor conception from all the angles, in a wonderfully honest manner. I wish you all the best.
