So I met with my the other clinic in SC and they have a larger database where you can go online yourself to review the available donors to make your choice on your own. They don't have pics, but they have very, very detailed information about physical characteristics of the donor & basic characteristics (height, weight, hair & eyes, age) of the immediate family (father, mother, siblings, grandparents & donors children). They also have family medical history, interests, education, blood type, hobbies, etc. They are much more expensive than my clinic, so we still have a lot to think about.
DH really likes Alicia out of California, but if it is going to be too expensive to cover her fee & travel expenses, he said we should just go with our current clinic and the donor they picked for us. Our clinic said they will work with us on any of our out-of-state choices and they can come to SC on stim day 6 or 7 of the cycle as our clinic will coordinate with a clinic near them. They are happy to go with their donor, but she agreed we had 2 excellent donors as well. I am waiting on the financial clerk to call me back today.
Meanwhile, the other clinic is blowing up my phone!!
