Hi! Welcome to the board :) I think it's wonderful that you have been so generous to donate :)

I'm not sure what will happen if my DD wants to connect with the donor. In our case it is anonymous, and I have no idea whether that could be challenged in the future if children from DE were to request more information. I plan to share the profile we got on the donor, but that's all I know.

As the mother of a child from DE, I would prefer not to know/meet the donor. I am thankful for the opportunity to have another baby, but in my eyes, after the egg and the sperm (one cell from donor, one cell from DH) I did the rest of the work of growing the baby, delivering her and breastfeeding her, not to mention all the rest that raising children entails (of course, once she was born, DH was involved again, lol) ... so I don't feel like there is a need to know the donor. But who knows how my DD will feel.

In other words, I have no idea what you might encounter in this situation, lol.
