Donor Siblings Decades Apart in Age?

By admin on July 20, 2008

Here is something else to ponder…we are seeing sibling groups with
wide age gaps in age, one group has kids listed that are 19 years
apart, one just posted today with kids 12 years apart.

When will banks start taking sperm off the market that was donated in
the 80’s or 90’s? How would this affect the kids being born and the
donors who could be very old by the time offspring try and contact them?

I think that sperm banks should be telling prospective buyers when the
first kids were born from their donor. Oh, right….they do not
necessarily know, as they do not keep accurate records.

Also, families that buy multiple vials can also store the sperm
indefinitely. What if a future relative wanted to use the sperm…oy,
the implications are pretty weird.
