relationship with donor

Postby saralee » Sun Feb 04, 2007 2:19 am

We are hoping to begin our first IVF cycle with DE very soon.

I'd prefer a known donor, would love to develop a relationship with the young lady. Wonder if this is uncommon? It looks like most donations are anonymous.

Thanks so much for the reply!

We haven't found a donor yet. There is still a possibility that we will use a donor through our clinic although I am a bit dismayed by their waiting list and the fact that donations are anonymous.

But, I placed an ad looking for a donor and the response has been good. I am very interested in one specific donor, time will tell if this is the way we go. I'd love to keep a relationship with the donor, E-mail updates and photos at Christmas ... that sort of thing. It's such a wonderful gift, and I would want to be able to provide any child that might result answers to questions he/she might have about his/her origins.

I won't have a lot of answers until my first clinic appt.

Thanks for welcoming me here.

I know it's been a couple of months, and I am not sure if you are monitoring this thread any more - but I send you an email with a few questions for you on Egg Dononation - I'd love to talk with you further.

I hope all is well!

known donor

Dear Saralee,

I hope you are still checking this thread. I would like to donate but I am only interested in an open or semi-open donation. I would like to know the people to whom the egg is going and, if the parents choose to tell their child of the donation, I would like to be available to answer questions. I want the child to know that their creation and well-being was as important to the donor as it was to the parents.
