Mothers Who Used Same Sperm Donor Meet

NEDERLAND, Colo. (AP) - Michelle Jorgenson thought it was odd that her
8-year-old daughter Cheyenne _ conceived with sperm from a mystery man
known to Jorgenson only as Donor 3066 _ was extremely sensitive to
sound and walked on her toes.
Jorgenson started checking on the Internet and soon learned of at least
six other children around the country who were fathered by 3066. And of
those seven, she discovered to her alarm, two have autism, and two
others, Cheyenne included, show signs of a sensory disorder tied
closely to autism.
The children's mothers located one another beginning a year ago through
the Donor Sibling Registry, a Web site run out of this Colorado
mountain town. It enables mothers artificially inseminated by the same
donor _ and children fathered by the same man _ to find each other.
In this case, the women all used 3066, whose sperm was provided by the
California Cryobank, based in Los Angeles.
I.e. is this a previously unexpected consequence of cryogenics?
Oh, now wouldn't THAT just be the icing on the cake ;-)
