Why donor-linking matters

Wendy Kramer is Director of the Donor Sibling Registry (DSR).  The DSR is a US charity organisation, founded in 2000 by Wendy and her donor-conceived son Ryan, to assist individuals conceived as a result of sperm egg or embryo donation that are seeking to make mutually desired contact with others with whom they share genetic ties.  Wendy speaks about the research undertaken by her organisation and the experiences of those people who have linked via DSR.

Wendy spoke at the Donor Linking Symposium, presented by the Australian & New Zealand Infertility Counsellors Association in conjuntion with the Victorian Assisted Reproductive Treatment Authority and the Donor Conception Support Group and held in Melbourne in December, 2011.
