I decided to be an egg
donor after a friend of mine did it. At first I
went through a clinic where it was totally anonymous
-- I hated it. The place made me feel as if I were a
specimen as opposed to a woman helping another couple.
That's when I made the choice to be matched
through an agency. I have since done one successful
donation =) And, not only that, but this was a semi-open
arrangement. The mom-to-be and I have formed a "friendship".
We email weekly she is allowing me the amazing gift
of being a silent partner in this experiance for them.
She sends me the ultrasound pictures, lets me know all
their carriers levels, sent me countless family photos
and most of all I get to know LITERALLY what this egg
donation and I have done for their life. I feel
as if I am the one who has been blessed...
I know the moment my kids were born was
the best day of my life and now I am helping other woman
have that day. I feel it was part of my destiny to be
able to share myself like this and plan to do it again.
I wish everyone the best of luck and especially to L
& R who are expecting their baby in February of
