Dear Sylvia,

Given the current state of cloning science, you will need to make a choice of genetic donors. Either you or your partner ( or anyone else, with their consent..).

Mixing genes from two ( or more??? ) different people is not something you can reasonably expect to see happen in the near future. That is not to say that there will not be a “breakthrough” tomorrow….

You should also be aware that a child born through this method will not be an exact “duplicate” of the donor. Though the somatic genes certainly play a huge role in what that person will be like, no less a role is played by the environment in which that person develops.

That may also include the environment of the embryo from day one (prior to implantation), and the subsequent environment in which it continues to develop and grow (the womb).
