Letters To My Donor Book

Letters to my Donor is a book for anyone looking to celebrate life and all that it means to be human. On every page parents’ letters paint a stunning picture of the ‘everydayness’ of their unique family lives. This exquisite ‘everydayness’ stands proudly alongside the ‘extra ordinary’ acts of kindness and generosity of the egg, sperm and embryo donors who played a pivotal role in bringing these families into being. With over 55 pages, the content within encapsulates the very essence of what it is to be a family. Whatever your definition of family and whatever type of family you’re from, this book is for you. Clinics can personalise each book with their own message for donors, potential donors and patients. For less than the price of a time-bound bouquet of flowers or an anonymous iTunes card, donors and recipients can have a unique keepsake to treasure. A beautiful thanks for any donor, an inspirational motivation for future donors and a heart-warming expression of what it is to be a family.

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.

In The Media

Over the last ten years there’s been an increase in egg and sperm donors coming forward in the UK. This didn’t happen by accident. 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.
