I've been thinking after watching the movie Hanna, in which the main character has a bit of a crisis after discovering that they have been conceived as part of a genetic engineering programme to create super soldiers, would it really be a cause for crisis to discover something such as that?
It made me think about the "savour siblings" debate from a while back in the UK, when parents had so called "designer babies" in order to help children who had already been conceived who had genetic defects which could be corrected by donation of genetic material from their siblings. Part of that debate revolved around how in later life children would take the news surrounding their conception. Would it be terrible or wonderful to be in their position?
Personally I think its fine or even a good thing to consider your birth as a result of thinking, judging and planning rather than chance or simply as a consequence of love or maternal and paternal drives.
Although I'm fine with some varieties of "hot housing" parenting too.
