A beautiful egg donor’s message to a potential recipient:
“I would like you to take a moment to think about the opportunity you would have from receiving eggs from a donor. Those reasons are why I would like you to have mine. I would like you to have the opportunity to have unconditional love in your life, to be able to wake up knowing that you’ve created a life that is completely dependent on you is the most euphoric feeling I have ever had the privilege to encounter. Parenthood requires love not DNA”
“This was a very pleasant experience for me. The entire process was awesome and I’m so surprised that more people don’t donate. I saw the entire procedure as donating some extra tools from my shed for someone else to grow a little garden. Its a very cool feeling to be able to help someone by doing almost nothing, so much that I actually felt a bit guilty for receiving ‘compensation’ for the donation as this was no effort at all. It takes a village to raise a child, I would definitely do this again.”
“Wow, first off I just want to say what a blessing it has been to be able to go through this whole experience. When I got the email to say that I had been chosen as your egg donor I had tears in my eyes.
As the egg retrieval day comes closer I get more and more excited. I know I can’t even begin to imagine how you must be feeling at this point in time, but I truly can’t wait to hand the baton over to you and cheer you on for the rest of your journey.
Even though I don’t know you, you are in my thoughts daily, and will continue to be. I wish you all the best, and I’m sending you all the love and good vibes that I can.
“I don’t know your story, or what hardships you had to go through to get where you are now, all I wish for you is happiness and a chance to be so much more than you ever thought possible. You have love in abundance inside you, ready to be shared and I truly and dearly hope I can play a small part in making this dream a reality for you. Help realising your dream will be my honour.
I realise that standing on the other side of this letter, you are concerned about who I truly am when no one is watching. I can say with a clear conscious and an open, loving heart that I have nothing to hide. I love giving of myself and I love even more the fact that I might be part of something bigger than myself.”
“I wanted to thank the Nurture team for all the support throughout the process. At no point did I feel like I was not being taken care of. Please keep doing what you do!
Also, if you could kindly send my best wishes to the recipient couple, that would be wonderful. My heart goes out to their potential new family and I hope that, with or without a child, they have all the love and warmth that they so obviously deserve. If all goes well, I am sure that they will make absolutely spectacular parents. They gave me a a beautiful card and a very thoughtful gift so I would really like to have them know that I am very grateful for that.
All the best to you all!
