My goal would be to connect with donor and any siblings out there. This was an anonymous donation but things change in life, you grow older and think about things and sometimes wish you could change your mind. I too wanted an anonymous donor when I started on my infertility journey. However, life has brought me so much joy from my three kids, I now welcome the opportunity to say thank you in person, via e-mail...whatever. Hopefully one day you will find me and be curious too.
This donation was originally made through Rocky Mountain Cryogenics. The tissue bank closed and sold all vials to NECC in Massachusetts. This is where I purchased my vials. Internet information leads me to believe the same donor numbers were retained but could be different # from Rocky Mountain.
I am searching for this Donor (as I have pertinent health information that I believe he should be aware of). At the time of donation he had two daughters ages 2 and 4. But my motivation is also selfish in that I would love to meet or see a picture of the hero that helped me create three beautiful children. My life is forever changed due to donor N170. I am thankful and blessed beyond words.
I am also interested in connecting with any siblings out there.
