“As a one parent family I have embraced the opportunity to link with others, to grow beyond my family and our family, but to welcome - my son’s family. My son’s family was made with love and hope. The love came from the parents and the hope came from our donor. As a group of parents we consciously chose to seek connection in the belief that it is in the best interest of our children. Our children all shared a common bond - our donor. My son's family has grown beyond he and I and this has enriched his and my life.” Anna
Linking on the Voluntary Register is often easier than connecting via the Central Register as you know from the beginning that people have come forward and applied because they want to – it’s voluntary. Sometimes, however, a Voluntary Register match doesn’t go ahead because the match may not occur at the right time for someone. It is OK to delay and then proceed in the future when life is less hectic.
