Our expert says:
I think that as a single woman, before one decides to have a child by AID ( and not too many ethically sound doctors would be eager to arrange that ) one should think through in great detail, and with the help of experienced counsellors, all aspects of the situation you were planning to create, especially from the point of view of the child.
As she has not yet started asking, now is the time to work on this with proper professional help, and there are no simple answers.
Generally truth is the best policy, though sometimes "the whole truth" needs to be tempered by taking into acount the age of the child and her ability to handle and understand complex concepts. You don't get to choose the age at which she starts asking.
Also, don't see this as a 1 question, 1 answer situation, but as the start of an ongoing discussion which should happen at different times.
