DSR Booklets & Brochures
The DSR has published a number of booklets and brochures over the years.
DNA = Donors Not Anonymous Booklet
"I wanted to thank you, tremendously, for making this information available. My team is sharing your booklet with all our donor applicants and I’ve forwarded to our five physicians and our eight nurse coordinators — AND boldly sending to our Intended Parents. I am also asking my program manager, who handles donor interviews and oversees our database, to email your booklet to all donor applicants — they need to read BEFORE they continue with the process. It’s perfect that you’ve created a PDF that is easily forwarded. Thank you for always fighting the good fight." —Jenna Lake, San Diego Fertility Center
DSR Research Tree Booklet
While we feel that it’s extremely important that all stakeholders are properly educated before (and after) donation/pregnancy, we realize that not everyone is interested in reading a stack of academic articles on the subject. Additionally, those who provide counseling services to the stakeholders and those thinking critically about the issues with regard to setting policy might have fallen behind on the latest research. This is why we put together the Donor Sibling Registry's Research Tree booklet — a summary of some of our peer-reviewed/published research papers. It’s the "CliffsNotes" of DSR research, studying all those in the donor family: the parents (biological and non-biological) of egg and sperm donor children, the egg and sperm donors, the offspring, and even the parents of people who have donated (the "donor grandparents"). Enjoy!
