I looked up our donor on the Donor Sibling Registry a couple times before and after we got pregnant and there was never any matches. However, when I looked it up today there was one - a girl born in 2011. Suddenly it became more real. There really are others out there using the same donor. I'm not entirely sure how I feel at this moment. It's kind of a strange feeling.
After reading her post, I also realized I could look at the sperm bank's Facebook page and possibly see other confirmed pregnancies. I never thought of doing that! I scrolled through tonight and found two more confirmed pregnancies this year in February and April - one of them with twin girls!
Our boys have at least four confirmed genetic relations, that we know of. I'm now debating on whether or not to join the DSR. Our sperm bank doesn't have open donor options, so this would be the only small connection they would have. I think my only hangup is the term "sibling" because other than genetics they are not related - at least not in my definition of family. So I am torn.
Have any of you considered joining? Or have you already joined? And, if so, what are your experiences?
