Making him or her both of ours

I have a Question.....my wife and I are a lesbian couple, contemplating having a baby together using a sperm donor, is it possible to introduce let's say, my dna, into my wife's fertilized embryo; making that future son or daughter biologically both of ours? before its transplanted into one of our uterus's?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
You will have your genes or your wife’s genes incorporated (depending on whose eggs you use) and the other part would be from the sperms donated by donor. For further clarification and assistance, visit your doctor/gynecologist.
Take care.
