There was an eye-catching ad for sperm donors on page 16 of the Sunday Canberra Times.
I was a sperm donor back in 1982, donating through a clinic in Woden which has since closed.
I’d like to let families who received my sperm, and the individuals who inherited my genes, know that I am available for them to contact me if they wish.
I am not searching for these people, but I just want to give them the option as I understand some children born through donor sperm want to know something about both their biological parents. This may be a more pressing wish as they approach marriage (etc) and parenthood themselves. For the same reason, a couple who are both from sperm donations might like to find out of they are half-siblings.
They may like to know, for example, that I’m leading a healthy retirement, that my sons in their late 20s are also healthy and well-adjusted.
Is there anything I can do to give my biological offspring the opportunity to locate me?
