Topic: Old retired donors

Anyone that has been around a while know if they got any baby photos from old donors from before they offered this option?  Just curious.

Re: Old retired donors

They had told us that if you specifically asked NW for your donor, they would do their best to reach out to that donor and ask.... But I don't think they got too far. sad

Re: Old retired donors

They kept telling us that ours was going to be released soon but after a few months of that, it changed to "they haven't gotten back to us yet". At this point I'm guessing we're just out of luck.

Re: Old retired donors

If I am remembering correctly, one of our families (may have been me, that's how bad my memory is. Don't do drugs children...) contacted nw and he denied the request. Not surprising since he went from willing to be known to NOT.

Re: Old retired donors

One of our sibling families contacted NW and asked if they would contact the donor to see if they were willing to provide a pic and she was told no, they would not reach out.  So I don't know what is their protocol.

ETA: We would love a pic!

Re: Old retired donors

I wish our donor had a photo. The donors we used before our pregnancy all had baby photos, but we just really liked this donor's profile, so we went without. Now that the baby is almost here, I would love the comparison. I guess it doesn't hurt to ask. I don't think many people have used our donor over the years. Maybe he hasn't been asked?

Re: Old retired donors

Our donor has a photo being offered. I haven't decided if I want to see a baby photo of him or not. Who am I kidding I am dying to see it but I am also nervous lol. We bought our donor about 4 or 5 years ago. So I am surprised he has a photo.

Re: Old retired donors

From contact with them
I was under the impression that they contact even the older donors every 6-months for medical updates and did reach out for baby photos to older donors.
From a tad bit of contact and research I know my donor was in the program for about 10 years and left shortly before the photos were available. They reached out and he wasn't interested.
