Response to Advise on Proven donor with mental illness in family


I would think I could be comfortable with her disclosure because some might try to hide it. If I otherwise really preferred the proven donor, I'd go that route. Otherwise, the unproven looks promising too. My kids (from donor embryo) have two suicides in their genetic background - a great grandparent on both sides. So I have already been down the path of "what if?" and decided to move forward. If you could put aside proven vs unproven and the familial mental health issue (consider this would be genetically speaking your child's great aunt and I would wager many of us have an alcoholic or mentally ill great aunt/uncle) and ask your heart which one really speaks to it.
