I know you are all very busy in the lead up to Xmas. I hope you have a wonderful time with your families and loved ones and are able to enjoy some well earned  time out. There will always be a special place in my heart for each one of you and I will never forget your kindness and compassion during my journey.

Our little girls are coming along beautifully and I will be 33 weeks tomorrow. At my last scan it was apparent that the bigger twin is trying very hard to push out her sister. Is this a sign of sibling rivalry to come? I am being very closely monitored because it puts me at much greater risk of early labour and may also compromise the little one. I have had steroids just in case and met with my Doctor today. We are going to bring the c section forward and have set tentative dates. I can’t believe how close it is now and whilst I am prepared for their stint in the neo natal unit (well sort of!), I cannot wait to see and hold them.

It’s such a special time and I feel incredibly blessed to be carrying these beautiful babies. Thank you so much for making my dreams come true. Please let our egg donor know how amazing she is and that we are doing just fine. Both babies are a good size so we are confident that everything will be ok.

With much love

“I get treated like a Queen”

Yes, everything is wonderful! Again thank you so much for everything!  Not only do I feel great doing this (again) but I get treated like a Queen :-)

Whatever happens, our value for what she has done for us will remain forever!

Our special Recipient had this to say:

“We are about to head back to Sydney after two weeks in your beautiful city.

The egg donation process has been a very positive experience for us and we are eternally grateful to our donor for giving us such a wonderful gift and opportunity. We hope she is doing well. Please pass on our gratitude to her for all of her commitment, effort and sincerity. We are optimistic for a positive result but whatever happens our value for what she has done for us will remain forever.

Also, many thanks to you and Nurture for everything you have done for us. You have given us such a warm and understanding response to everything right from the initial point of contact. Keep up the good work as we might even be back again :-)

We have taken in all the Cape Town touristy stuff and have been amazed by this City and its surrounds. We are not surprised that Cape Town has been rated the world’s top tourist destination, nothing can compare. We also met your friendly baboons at Cape Point. In fact, we survived your lions, leopards, rhinos, hippos and elephants (which came pretty close) as well!

Thanks again and we will be in touch”

Thumbs upand in response, her incredible egg donor had this to say:

“I’m not much of a soppy, emotional person, but that was beautiful – thank you! I’m quite impressed I’ve donated to a foreign family!

It’s been such a great opportunity, this whole donation process. I didn’t know what to expect in the beginning, but I knew in my mind it would be rewarding.  Please tell my recipient family it’s been the biggest pleasure to be a part of their journey. If someone is willing to invest so much time, effort, and money into having children I truly believe the child(ren) will grow up in an extremely privileged family.

I’m holding thumbs and crossing fiingers for great success :-)

We always check in with our donors post egg retrieval,  how lovely it is to get feedback like this:

“I appreciate the feedback, I wish the recipients all the best. I would also like to thank you for the gift and for making me feel special, constantly!”

“Thank you for making our dreams of having a family a reality”

girlgirlgirlWe are thrilled to announce the arrival of our beautiful, precious daughter born on Friday 10th October 2014.

She was delivered by Caesarean section and weighed in at 7lb 9oz.

Thank you once again to everyone involved in making our dreams of having a family a reality”

“How blessed we have been to receive her special gift”

6bc4ad693b8ed04235678a14d4a0bb30I just wanted to let you know that I have had the big scan and everything is fine. We are thrilled to announce that we are expecting two beautiful girls, we couldn’t be happier!

It has been a very emotional time for us and we have tried not to get too excited, just in case. I finally feel like I can breathe a little now!

We are filled with hope and joy at the prospect of holding our precious darlings. Thank you so much for making our dreams come true.

Please can you let our donor know our wonderful news. I often think of her – what an amazing woman she is and how blessed we have been to receive her special gift!

“I would do it again in a heartbeat”

0daa4d25bf9af1db86f4c979f92e8cd1I’ve just got back home now from a wonderful stay in Cape Town. 

I just want to thank you for the amazing assistance I received from the Nurture team and the great stay at the guest house. The whole process from the time I was first told that I had been chosen as a donor until I got back home was absolutely wonderful! Everyone at the Cape Fertility Clinic was so pleasant and friendly too!

It truly was such an amazing experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat! I really pray and hope that everything works out well for the recipient.

“This is one good thing in my life that I will always cherish”

Tammuz ad copy“I do not have the words to explain how I am feeling right now. I just left the clinic after my egg retrieval.  I’m sooo emotional from all the happiness.

I feel super blessed to have had the opportunity to donate and think it was all so worth it. I cannot express enough how grateful I am for the couple who chose me. I can’t seem to stop crying. This is one good thing in my life that I will always cherish!

Please tell the recipient parents that I got their gift and I appreciate it more than they could ever know, I hope and pray for every success with this journey ahead of them.

Thank you to Nurture and the staff at Vitalab too, they really were amazing. I hope to do this again soon.

Good luck & God bless xx”
