“I want to help you through this in any way that I can”

“Hello Mommy and Daddy-to-be!

 I just wanted to write you something to let you know that I am just as excited as you to get everything started!  I’m sure that you’re nervous as well and I want to let you know that I’m in this with you. You’re definitely not doing this alone.

 After I received the email stating that you’ve done me the huge honour of asking me to become your donor, I smiled all day and immediately sent an email to my Mom to inform her that I’ve been chosen. Then I told 3 of my closest friends, and whomever sat close enough to listen! After explaining the entire process to them and seeing their, at times horrified faces (the guys were freaked out, the girls – not so much), I had to answer the same question over and over…….

 “Why?”

 Simple. Because I can. But it goes deeper than that. Because I want to help. Because saying that “I know how you feel” and “I’m here for you” doesn’t always cut it. Because no one knows what you guys went through, and how hard your personal journey has been. Also, it’s who I am. I want to be by your side (in this case, figuratively) and to help you through this in any way that I can.  If that means telling my boss that I need to visit a specialist every now and then, telling them that I need specialised medical care so that I can get two weeks of sick leave, injecting myself with hormones, going on a hormonal rampage in the chocolate isle in Pick’nPay if necessary, and allowing strange men (a.k.a, doctors) to see my vajayjay, then so be it!

 Because it really is the least that I can do.

 I’m being a good girl, promise. I’ve already gotten myself into the habit of drinking my vitamins, and I’m eating all the fruits that I can find (my new smoothie machine is helping a lot on that score!).  I am still working on the tons of water thing, but I’m usually so thirsty after bootcamp that it shouldn’t be an issue.

Overall, when things get tough, remember that I’m thinking of you.

All my love (and lots of blessings).

“Thank you for this amazing opportunity that enabled me to help change someone else’s life”

hearts3.jpghearts“I did it!!! :) Oh my gosh! Best experience of my WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE!!!! The sisters and doctors were sooo nice and made me feel like I was in heaven!

hearts3.jpgI just want to say thank you sooooo much for this amazing opportunity that enabled me to help change someone else’s life for the better. I got a bit emotional from my gift from my recipient, but it made me so happy!!

I will most definitely do this again, maybe next year or so.  I also want to thank you guys for doing what you are doing and for helping to give couples the chance at having a family”.

Egg Donor Feedback – “It was the most amazing experience”

5ded1031a4087e9a62fafc74fe052f58“It was the most amazing experience, I would do it all over again!
Thanks for giving me the opportunity, and a special thanks to Gerida for being there to guide me every step of the egg donation process.
You Nuture ladies along with everyone at the clinic are truly amazing!”

A beautiful note from a recipient to her egg donor

thank you.jpeg copy“I have wanted to make contact with you for a long time, but I just haven’t been able to find the right words to convey what I feel in my heart. I think of you all the time. I wonder how your prince and princess are going. Whether you understand how much joy you have brought to the lives of your recipients. 

Our daughters are just beautiful. I look deep into their blue eyes and think of you. You said they would be perfect and they are…truly amazing. I love to hold them and play with their little fingers and toes. Pat their warm little heads and smell their baby skin. I still have to pinch myself that my dream has come true – twice.
After the tragedy of losing my children, I struggled on so many levels for years. Finally I have come out of that dark, empty place to a life that is rich in purpose and happiness. I can only sincerely thank you and the other amazing people who have made this a reality.
My sweet girls are very different. One has dark hair, the other light. In temperament one is feisty whilst her sister is laid back. One has a cry that sets off the neighbourhood dogs in the middle of the night, whilst the other snorts like a piglet. My eldest daughter just adores smothering them with sloppy kisses and cuddles. She wants more babies(!)
We are having our darlings baptised in a couple of weeks. It will be lovely to celebrate their precious lives with our family and friends. Being their mummy is such a privilege and I am loving every moment. Yes, even in the wee hours of the night, I really don’t mind. Please know that I am committed to being the best mummy I can be. I might not always get it right, but I will keep trying and learn from my mistakes. Above all I will love, cherish and support them – always.
I wish you an abundant life, filled with peace, joy and love. Your incredible gift has transformed my life and I cannot thank you enough.
All my love
xx”

“I’m helping a couple start a family”

Tammuz ad copy“I’m back from the egg retrieval and feel great, a little bit of an uncomfortable tummy but otherwise I’m happy… they managed to retrieve 31 eggs!

 I will definitely want to do this all again as it’s such a wonderful feeling knowing that for a few days of discomfort, and one small procedure I’m helping a couple start a family.

 I am now holding thumbs that the recipient falls pregnant and they can start their exciting journey.

 Thank you to you and your special Nurture team, you all have been so supportive. It’s such a pleasure to be apart of your agency! Definitely made my process easy!”

“I have a great feeling of peace ♡♡♡”

As she’s reached her limit and her journey as an egg donor comes to an end, our amazing donor has this say:

“Wow I can not explain the feeling I have right now, that is so amazing! Thank you for this life changing experience, it really has changed my life and taught me so much about myself as a person and how it takes nothing, absolutely nothing to change someone’s world! I am in absolute awe today and have a great feeling of peace ♡♡♡

Thank you!”

As sad as we are to “lose” her – we cannot thank her enough for the amazing gifts she have given to our Nurture recipients.

“You have given us the most amazing gift in the world”

We received the most beautiful email from one of our amazing egg donor recipients.  We are honoured to have been able to help and to pass this message onto her egg donor. We are keeping everything crossed for them!

valentines-day-heart“To our beautiful Donor,

No matter how many times I try write a letter to you , I will never truly be able to express all my thoughts and feelings.

My hubby and I would just like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you have done for us.

There is not a day that didn’t go by that I didn’t think about you or wonder if you are doing ok. You have been by far the bravest person throughout this process and I will forever be grateful to you. You have given us the most amazing gift in the world and I thank God every day for you. I am overwhelmed by how there are such amazing people like you out there, and although we will never meet I am happy I found you.

Thank you so much for taking time out of your life to help me make my dream come true. I know I still have a long road ahead but you have done so amazingly well in starting my journey. On Tuesday the 14th you were the only person in my prayers and thoughts. I hope all is going well and just know that we are feeling incredibly blessed and thankful for your gift to us.

Lots and lots of love Us xxx”

“Words can’t explain how amazing it feels to have helped them”

4fdfc2a9b00dd7bb8c7e3a7b21ea89e3Another positive pregnancy result and our special egg donor had this to say:

“Wow! I am so thrilled and crying tears of joy, that is absolutely wonderful news. I’ve kept them in prayer since my donation. Words can’t explain how amazing it feels to have helped them. Please congratulate them for me and I wish my Angel recipient well over her pregnancy and for the future ahead. Parenthood will bring them a lifetime of joy.

Children bring happiness and blessings into families, and for me to have given her a little ‘push start’ to becoming a mother has just fulfilled my purpose “Helping Others”.

A very big thank you to the entire Nurture Team as well as the Dr’s and staff of Cape Fertility Clinic.

Hugs n Kisses from a very happy Nurture Donor xx”
