Resource:Donor Sibling Registry

Name: Resource:Donor Sibling Registry
Description: Registry to assist individuals conceived as a result of sperm, egg or embryo donation that are seeking to make mutually desired contact with others with whom they share genetic ties. They are all about educating, connecting, and supporting donor families.

Without any outside support, the DSR has single-handedly pioneered a national discussion about the donor conception industry and families, with it's many media appearances and interviews. DSR advocates for the right to honesty and transparency for donor kids, and for social acceptance, legal rights and valuing the diversity of all families.

The DSR's core value is honesty, with the conviction that people have the fundamental right to information about their biological origins and identities. The donor conception industry is largely a for-profit enterprise, and after the “product” has been purchased, most doctors, clinics, egg donation agencies and cryobanks do not engage in discussions and activities which acknowledge the humanity and rights of the donor-conceived. It is our mission to bring these concepts to the public arena for discussion, as has been done in many European countries, as well as New Zealand and parts of Australia.

Although you do not need to make a posting to browse the database, it is strongly recommended. Creating a posting in our database is the first step to ensuring the best possible chances of connecting with your biological relatives. If two users with the same donor number browse, but neither post, the connection cannot be made. Many folks are out there waiting to see someone else post for their donor number first! The DSR hope that this will be the first step in connecting with your donor relatives, but please always exercise sensible caution when making contact with those you meet through any internet website, including the DSR.
