Thanks for posting. I was wondering when/if npr would cover this.
I just cant get used to this sibling registry and biological mother stuff. It creates such a knot in my stomach. I can understand if you have a relationship with your donor, but...After all this suffering, grieving, fear, longing, time, money, the idea that my hopefully future child has another "mother" just about enrages me. Wouldve been nice if npr had balanced their piece.
Notwithstanding the keeping secrets toxicity, it seems to me that many donors DO simply think of this as a dna donation. Part of me wonders if these registries are yet another business idea for someone to take more money out of our vulnerable lot.
Theres got to be a better way to communicate privately to the child without making him/her feel hes part of an entirely differnt family. And no one can convince me that a 5 yr old understands nature and nurture. Adults hardly understand.
Ps--no flame or offense intended.
