In anticipating a child's need for information, as well as the desire of families to stay connected, we're updating the California Cryobank Sibling Registry, which will allow siblings and extended families to find each other.
Those who choose to enroll in the Sibling Registry must report their pregnancy as a prerequisite to gain access. Participation in our program is completely optional and therefore will not offer a comprehensive list of potential siblings. Once enrolled, families will have access to information of potential siblings who have chosen to enroll. This includes the posting of births of potential siblings, profiles and email contact information for potential siblings, and an online portal where siblings and families will be able to communicate regarding sperm donors and the insemination that took place. Because this information is organized by donor number, families can find each other easily.
The choice to turn to reproductive services for help in your quest to conceive is an important decision whether as the sperm donor or the one undertaking artificial insemination and one that is certainly not made without careful consideration of all the factors involved. As a top sperm bank, California Cryobank's mission is to help our clients realize their dream in the safest, most prepared manner possible. Every step of the way, every part of the process is presented to our clients with experience behind it-with clarity and expert guidance.
It never escapes our notice that the end result of our many services is to help our clients conceive. There is no question that the children born of this donor insemination and further conception are in their parents' dreams many years prior to their arrival and are welcomed into their family with much gratitude and love. And we also understand that there will come a day when questions will be raised by these children or information about their conception will be shared by their parents at a time they deem to be appropriate. And, after receiving that information, children may have questions about their biological parentage or their potential siblings who may have been fathered by the same sperm donation through a sibling registry. Or our clients may choose to connect their children immediately with their siblings so that they can be raised with the knowledge of their family.
*Please note: California Cryobank acquired USC/PTI (Procreative Technologies) in 1997. While we did not continue to sell their donors, we did retain some patient and donor files. If you have any questions about the USC/PTI donors, please contact Client Services at 866-927-9622.
