Sperm Bank Connecting Donors, Parents and Offspring With New Site - xyConnects
Date:8/24/2014

Augusta, GA (PRWEB) August 24, 2014

xyConnects is an innovative website that allows donors, offspring and parents to connect, share experiences and learn about each other's journey to start a family.

Recent television shows like MTV's Generation Cryo and the movie Delivery Man bring a pop culture spin to the reality that thousands of children born as the result of anonymous sperm donation long to find and connect with their biological father. Now, Xytex Cryo International (Xytex), one of the nation's largest sperm banks, is making that possible through a new online connection site called xyConnects. This first of its kind site makes it possible for donors who provided semen to Xytex to connect and communicate with the parents and offspring (13 years and older) who resulted from their donations.

"It is not uncommon for children conceived by donor semen to want to discover more about the man who made it possible for them to have life," said Kevin O'Brien, president of Xytex. "Until now, these connections have been made informally through online forums and social media communities, which offers no guarantee that donors are using their real identities."

xyConnects uses confirmed donor ID numbers and recorded births to confirm identity before any online connections can be initiated. xyConnects further enhances the environment's security with a Xytex moderator who reviews and approves every user registration, message, post and photo placed on the site.

xyConnects allows users to send and receive messages, share photos and post updates to a public online bulletin board. In addition to allowing offspring and parents to connect with their donors, this technology enables users to see other families their donor has helped create, adding the exciting potential for children to communicate with half siblings as well.
