“I am thrilled to share that I will be 14-weeks pregnant on Friday and all my test results are great, we are having a baby girl! My OB thinks all looks great. The next step is the 20-week scan for all body parts etc.
It has been quite a long two months, but oh my, this is all we had hoped for and if we had the option to pick the sex, it would definitely be a girl!
I am really just letting all the good news sink in. I am feeling extremely hopeful and also amazed at how this is all unfolding at this time.
With much gratitude to you and your team for all you do. Thank you for your patience and persistence getting me to this result. I feel beyond confident with not just our egg donor, but in fact the entire story about how this all unfolded / ended up. That this came together with you and Nurture in the end is also a very big blessing. The whole story sits very well with me and I am very grateful. I do want other women to know all the very good you all do!
Look forward to keeping you posted.
Kindest Regards and Infinite Gratitude
“All my dealings with the people at Nurture has been nothing short of excellent and the extremely caring, yet faultlessly professional service you provide is virtually unheard of in this day and age.”
Having already been down an incredibly difficult journey, a very deserving recipient had this to say about our wonderful team member, Tanya.
“I would like you to know she was absolutely amazing in the way she dealt with me. I had got to the point where there was no one else I could ask to help me. That’s when I chose an egg donor from Nurture.
Because of what I have been through, I needed someone I could trust. I had complete trust in Tanya, she communicated with me continuously and let me know exactly what was happening at all times.
Sadly it did not work out with our donor, but if I ever need an egg donor again in the future, I will definitely contact Nurture”
“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.”
“Another donation has come and gone. I just can’t believe that I’ve taken my time and given my heart to help another couple reach their dream. Today I went to get my eggs retrieved and they managed to get 20 eggs! I am really humbled by this. Thank you Nurture for helping me to have a purpose in life”.
Thank you gorgeous egg donor, it is our pleasure to work with you xx
“I know that as parents one day, we will make mistakes, but we will protect, love and nurture our child forever. Having struggled for so long, my husband and I will never take the miracle of a child for granted. I don’t think a day will go past when we don’t say thank-you for your utterly selfless and compassionate gift. You are a precious soul.
Lastly, I want to let you know that your profile struck a chord with me. I felt that we could easily have been great friends. I love your spunk, determination and sense of fun. And we share a common dislike of cow-tongue on the menu :-).
We hope that this process is a comfortable one for you, and that you are supported, but never pressured.
With love and gratitude”
“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…….
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).
“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.
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!
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”
