Response to CNY is THE Last Place I would go for an Asian Donor
Of east Asian donors there? We have substantial populations of Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese immigrants in the DC area, so I'm going to speculate that there would be greater availability in their donor base. It's unsurprising that CNY would not have a big donor base of any non-white ethnicities given its location (although there are surprising pockets of immigrants all around the country). Although I notice that GIVF, also in the D.C. area and about 1.5 mi. from little Korea, which allows the public to search its database, only has 3 or 4 east Asian donors (and why do they lump all "Asians" together? Do people in Iraq look like people in China?).
Also, are you west coast? Would you consider going overseas for treatment? It might be cheaper and give you a greater donor base.
