After blogging about the injections yesterday and what the next steps were in my donation process, I received this message on Facebook. She asked me to keep her identity anonymous, but was happy for me to share her words …
I saw your post today about being an egg donor and wanted to just send a mail to say I admire what you are doing and I thank you. My story is from the other side. I received news yesterday that after trying for a year and a half they have discovered I dont have many eggs and natural conception will be very unlikely. We might possibly have some luck with IVF but they are not sure how many eggs they will be able to harvest.
Thus my only other option is egg donation.
A scary road lies ahead.
But my dream is to have a child and it’s because of people like you that I might get that dream.
THANK YOU for doing what you are doing.
I was beside myself. Grateful that she had shared her plight with me. Proud of myself for signing up and for committing to help someone’s dream come true.
