All parents by DC need to hear/see this

A donor conceived adult who sometimes posts comments here has asked me to give some publicity to a song that has been written and is sung by Kevin Staudt, a DC adult from Germany who is searching for his donor.  As she says,  “Sometimes it’s so hard to explain why knowing your biological (donor) father’s identity is so important to so many ‘donor’ conceived.  Words alone don’t really reflect the intense emotions.  This song/video does a very good job of that though.”   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuMMrcDY_84 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XG0n83yqv4&feature=iv&src_vid=HuMMrcDY_84&annotation_id=annotation_2543745055

Although I don’t believe that all DC adults feel like Kevin or my correspondent, I do think this is a powerful reminder of the importance of making sure that donors are identifiable if possible…and that we tell our children about their beginnings of course.  None of us parents or potential parents can know how our children may feel about being donor conceived.  It is so important that they rather than the parents get to call the shots here.
