Using An Egg Donor To Build Your Family and The Donor Sibling Registry
Posted by Pathways to Parenthood | December 3, 2013
If you have decided to utilize an egg donor to build your family, you have likely considered what you will tell your child/children about the origins of their conception. The decision-making process about disclosure is complex, and warrants thoughtful consideration. It is important and useful to gather information about the topic of disclosure from reliable resources.
One such resource that offers useful information is The Donor Sibling Registry (DSR). The DSR was originally founded to help donor-conceived children connect with their half-siblings. The organization was founded out of the curiosity of donor- conceived children wanting to learn more about their donor and their donors’ families, including other donor-conceived half-siblings.
Since it’s beginning in 2000, the DSR has grown to be so much more. It is now a place to learn about how to get access to accurate medical updates from your donor, and be connected should you and/or your child have questions in the future that only your donor can answer.
