I’d like to hear from those of you who have or are considering donating your embryos anonymously. Did/would you register on the Donor Sibling Registry in order to allow any children born from your embryos to contact you later? Especially if your clinic doesn’t give you the option other than anonymous.
Also, did/will you tell your own children that you donated embryos, so that if they want, they can try to search for any of their genetic siblings?
Our daughter came to us thanks to anonymous embryo donation, and the clinic does not have any option other than anonymous. So I’m hoping that, given the chance, our donors and/or their children would register with the DSR, so that our daughter could get in touch with them when she’s older, if she wants. Our first attempt with EA was an open arrangement. We were out of ideas, money, and strength to continue looking for an open arrangement. Plus, I felt uncomfortable with the level of openness our first EA attempts had. Being able to contact the donors when DD turns 18 would have been ideal, but there aren’t as many choices with donor embryos as there are with donor sperm.
