06: The Donor Sibling Registry (featuring Wendy Kramer)

The Donor Sibling Registry (DSR) is a network in which people conceived via sperm or egg donation can enter information about which donor they used, and get matched to their biological half-siblings and their donor. Over the past two decades, the DSR has grown from a small group of people looking to connect, to one of the foremost advocates for donor conceived people worldwide. I talk with co-founder Wendy Kramer about the founding of the organization, the issues the donor conceived community face, and the advocacy work the Registry does on behalf of donor conceived people.If you'd like to donate to the DSR, you can learn how at https://www.donorsiblingregistry.com/donate//If you have a story about donor conception or nontraditional families that you would like to share, or if you have any questions, contact the show through email at diblingpodcast@gmail.com or on Twitter @diblingpodcast.
