Even if the screening is incomplete, the information provided to customers is often far more extensive than what the average person might know about his or her partner before having children, Almeling and Braverman both said. Sharing and updating medical information on the DSR with other families and the donor can be important and even life-saving. What many of us parents have learned over the years is that many of these kids do become very curious and want to know about the missing one-half of their genetic and medical background. In , the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study about an apparently healthy year-old donor who passed on a genetic heart condition to at least eight of his 22 offspring. Also, you can see how many families are already posted for that donor. Hersh, who said she has handled cases related to fertility for years, said people who are turning to sperm banks to conceive a child are often in an emotionally fragile state. They are not perfect, but do seem to try harder to contact donors when a child turns 18, not just send a generic letter in the mail, as some banks, like California Cryobank have done.
