Has anyone had experience with them? I found a short thread about them from 2007, but I would love to hear from anyone who has used them. Thanks!

Hi Cejae,

Thanks for the offer. I ended up talking to the head of the bank, and it turns out he is moving away from being a sperm bank and towards helping with a directed donors. I'm sad--I liked their policy of revealing the name of the donor after 3 months, and I don't know anything else like that. If anyone knows of any other banks where you can find out the identity before the kid is 18, let me know!

I used them, my son is now six years old.

And if you talked with Leland, then you know that they are changing what services they offer. It's a shame, really. I have considered trying to squeeze another child in before my old eggs shrivel up and die, but now it looks like I'm SOL unless I use another bank.

I liked RFHS. I had good service and my son is beautiful I have met with the donor and met him and his family several times. We exchange holiday cards, mostly. It works out great.

Best wishes to you!

Hi Madison,

Thanks for responding--it's nice to know you had a good experience with RFHS. Leland says he does still have some sperm left, he just isn't taking any more donations so when it is gone it is gone. I'm still thinking about using him for as long as I can (I would love the kind of arrangement you have with your son's donor), but I definitely know I'll have to be ready with a back-up plan for when his supply runs out.
