Donation Through the Years
A compilation of heartfelt letters from donor-conceived adults, donors, parents of donor-conceived offspring and fertility professionals reflecting on the changing landscape of donor conception through the eras.
To mark 10 years since the removal of donor anonymity in the UK, the National Gamete Donation Trust (NGDT) has compiled this beautiful collection of raw and powerful letters written by those whose lives have been affected by donor conception.
An honest account of what donor conception means to many, the voices contained within this book will take you on a journey through the emotional complexities of donor conception for all involved. They speak of altruism, pride, fulfilment and joy. They also reflect on invisible bonds, hopes, fears and uncertainties.
Weaved throughout this publication runs a narrative by Dr Ruth Curson, retired Clinical Assistant from King’s College, London, documenting the changes in the world of gamete donation – particularly donor insemination – since the 1940s.
This stunning book is a perfect personal keepsake for anyone involved in the gamete donation community. It’s a timely reminder of how things once were, how far we have come, and it considers what the future may hold.

Media coverage, in whatever way, shape or form, has an important role to play. The more media inches, the more awareness, the more donors come forward. It is as simple as that.
