“I wasn’t looking for a father or anything. I was purely interested in knowing…me! I’m a sticky nose. I didn’t like the fact that there was stuff about me that I may not know. I now feel a bit more at ease knowing the answers to those questions….Sometimes the answers weren’t there straight away…I am so grateful that Graham (her donor) and Mathilde (his wife) let me have contact with them.” Kelly
Consider making an application to one register at a time. Think about who you would really like information about and apply accordingly. When that application has been resolved, and contact feels comfortable, you can then apply to the other register if you wish. For example, if it is most important for you to find out more about your donor you can apply to the Central Register; then later to the Voluntary Register to potentially connect with donor-siblings.
