Parents of Donor-Conceived Children Curious To Know More

There has been tons of information circulating around donor-conceived children. A recent advertising campaign has asked donor-conceived parents to speak to their children about their origin. Health authorities were flooded with inquiries in this regard. They have been receiving more than 50 calls and emails from parents of donor-conceived children, young adults and sperm donors.

Louise Johnson who is the chief executive said that the sperm or egg donors could initiate contact after the legislation allows them to do so when the child turns 18 years of age. But parents are worried about how to go about the matter and the preparation necessary after legislation says that the children and donors can contact each other. Parents are seeking clarification about the legislation itself and donors about their rights. The authority planned to provide some counselling services to families and donors before any contact is made. The State Government has allocated $550,000 for the next three years to help the parents, donors and the children to have a smooth relationship with each other.
