Scandinavian Seed Siblings was started in 2008 by a few Swedish mothers who had children as a result of sperm donation. A donor also contributed to the start of the organisation.
In 2009 our first members joined. From the very beginning parents, donors and donor conceived teenagers were represented in the organisation. During those first years the matching register was the focus of the operation, and in 2011 people from seven nations joined us. The same year we had our first matched members.
In 2012 we expanded our target group and the main purpose of Seed Siblings. The organisation went from mostly having functioned as a register for matching half-siblings for people all over the world, with ties to Danish spermabanks, to focusing on a meeting place, a forum, for Nordic donor conceived persons, their parents and donors.
In 2015 the matching register´s purpose was expanded. From now our register welcomed not only those with a danish donor number but also donor conceived persons who were conceived with the help of donated sperm in a Nordic clinic (their parents and donors are still welcome as well!)
The current members of the Seed Siblings board live in Sweden and some of them have been involved since 2008 when the organisation officially formed with statutes and recived an organisation number. As of 2015 the board consists of women in families who have all concieved children as a result of sperm donation. The members of the board strive for shaping an organisation which, backed by scientific research, highlights the conditions and addresses the needs of the individuals concieved as a result of donation.
Do you want to help us? Do you have thoughts or ideas about how our organisation could evolve? Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and apply to become a member of the board or a volunteer!
As well as the board, there is a group of involved people outside the organisation who quietly have helped make Seed Siblings available to the world. Without them – our volunteers – the organisation would have lacked in communicative effect, colour, language and shape. We wish to, in particular, thank the following people:
