I am so glad you asked this.
I can't seem to do it either.
I have the 3 choices. And the last in my list is a http.
So I thought ok...you can only add a pic if you have one stored on the web somewhere.
I don't get a browse button to choose either.
I do know how to do this cause I do it on other sites.
But the box and browse button doesn't come up on my screen. I have scrolled down.
Under the http box is a Personal Text label and box.

Ta, Rose

Sorry for taking this all off topic for so long. Thanks for the updates, there was a permissions issue, this has been resolved so you should be able to upload your own picture now.

Sorry about that. Smiley

Cheers,

hi Karlas_mum,

If you can contact the donor at any time why do you say that he is anonymous?

Hi Karlas_mum,
as someone who also used an anonymous identity release donor, personally, I would not wait for the baby to be old enough to do that on his/her own.
My donor was also happy for contact but once I started trying to contact him via the clinic it was a real trial.
They lost crucial contact paperwork and but for the grace of god we would not have found him.
I have found that so many things can happen in just one year, let alone longer.
Why not get his name and contact details now. Get a photo now and just put them away for the baby. Stay in contact maybe once a year, so that you are sure of having his contact info?

That's good advice from Rose and Fiona. I was going to suggest that you find out who the donor is now so you can at least find him down the track.

Hey jo - I agree with the others here. Things change and people move on and so much can happen in the years between now and when your child is wanting contact. What if the donor passed away and you could never get biological info for your child?
You dont have to have contact everyday - I know you have to consider your husbands feelings - but really when it comes down to it, you are creating a child who should have rights to biological information - she/he should come before all else and if you dont act now it would be terrible if you couldnt find him when you really needed to. Also children ask questions at very young ages and understand so much more than given credit for - if they are given the opportunity to do so. Please dont think I am saying this is what you "should" do - you also have to keep your own family in tact to provide a good home also but neither your husband or yourself would be replaced believe me - just because you have a photo and contact maybe once or twice  a year. I think you are very lucky to get a donor who will be identified. Good luck.
