I'm looking for a word that effectively conveys an attitude showing a preference for having a child related to oneself ... ie, a lineally/genetically-related child.
In particular, a word that would fit the following example:
- Michael had a _____ attitude, he wanted children of his own
and / or possibly a noun form:
- Michael was a _____ unlike Sam who was a non-_____
which would be helpful in distinguishing between people that prefer to have their own children and those that are happy to adopt, foster, etc.
I had considered "autogenic" ... "auto" meaning self, and "genic" meaning "produced by" ... and even "progenic" (or "progenetic" possibly) which might work here, "pro-", I take to mean "following" or "in favour of" which in combination with "genic" / "genetic" relates to genetic lineage or heritage. However, I'm not sure I've constructed them appropriately, or whether they're right or not.
