“Thank you for your utterly selfless and compassionate gift. You are a precious soul”.

heartAn excerpt from a special egg donor recipient’s note to her phenomenal egg donor:

“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”

“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”

“We are in awe of the fact we now have a baby”

dc7473fa7455ae701da53e101fa42811Our gorgeous boy was born on Wednesday. He weighed a lovely 3.92 kgs!!!

Everything is going really well, he’s perfect in every way, has figured out how to feed already!

Loves his cuddles and his baths!! He’s very content and chilled out. We are totally in love with him. I can’t stop looking at him and listening to the gorgeous noises he makes.
We are in awe of the fact we now have a baby and can’t quite believe that we are parents. We feel so blessed and privileged.
Thank you all and a big thank you and hugs to our special egg donor for giving us this wonderful gift.

“Love letters” between an egg donor and her recipient

The elated new Mother

“Hi Nurture,

Our beautiful bundle of joy was born on February 2nd. Thank you for your support and for helping me find the perfect donor. I now have my perfect baby. The joy I feel is beyond description.

Please continue helping bring hope to the many couples out there that are yearning for babies. You guys are awesome!

To Our Donor:

“I don’t know how to thank you enough for what you’ve done, words fail me. Your selfless act has brought us immense happiness. Please find time to read Numbers 6:24-26.”

Forever grateful”

Her incredible Egg Donor’s response:

Oh my word Mel !! Thank you so very much! You have absolutely no idea what this update means to me.

You know when I got that first update from you to tell me my recipient was pregnant, I thought that was the best news ever,  but now that she got the wonderful opportunity to experience childbirth, I think this update deserves to take first place as the best news ever! I’m so glad, I’m crying and I don’t even know how to thank you enough.

The Nurture team are really a group of remarkable women and yes I think you, the donors and recipients all deserve front row seats in heaven. You really are very good at what you’re doing and wherever I go, I tell people about egg donation and Nurture. I hope you get more wonderful donors to help create more beautiful families.

When I was busy with my first donation, I was busy with one of the most important exams of my life. I missed one subject because I travelled too far and didn’t make it back in time to the exam centre, they wouldn’t allow me to rewrite the subject, not even with a Doctor’s certificate.  However, when people ask me if I regret doing it, I say NO with much pride in my heart. I’m just so very glad that I was able to help create a miracle. I’ve made two people very very proud and happy parents. If I could do this all over again, I wouldn’t think twice”

To my recipient:

“I’m so happy for you and I’m so glad you chose me as your donor. I know you will take very good care of the little one, you really deserve to be parents.

I am the one who should be forever grateful. Thank you for blessing me with that wonderful scripture.

Xxx”

More awesome Egg Donor feedback

“I am so glad that everything went well, and I’m hopeful that my egg donor recipients will have the baby/babies they’ve always wanted. Please convey my best wishes to them and also thank them for the gift they left for me…it is so thoughtful and much appreciated.
 I am also sad that today was my last egg donation,  it was truly an amazing journey – from start to finish.
 It was such a privilege to have worked with Nurture and Cape Fertility Clinic (CFC).  It’s been really comforting to have you and your support every step of the way, with every donation.
Melany, thank you so much for everything. I am so blessed to have met you and “worked” with you. I have truly found a friend in you. Like you said, I will always be a part of Nurture and Nurture of me.
Keep up the amazing work you do by making dreams come true.
I will always love you and will never ever forget you”.kiss.jpg

“I can’t wait to help try and make their dream come true”

38d6f111075f984dda76705571b1c796This fabulous egg donor had just found out she’s been chosen to donate her eggs…..

“IT’S ABSOLUTELY A YES!! Please tell my recipient I can’t wait to help try and make their dream come true :-)

xx”

Not only is it the best feeling in the world, but the Nurture team are amazing!

Thumbs up“All went well, the Dr said he got 13 big, beautiful eggs.

 WOW!!! I can’t believe my second egg donation is done and dusted and I got the opportunity to be in a position to help as a donor again!

Not only is it the best feeling in the world, but the Nurture team are amazing!  My health and safety was top priority to them.  Mel was supportive during the entire process, which I am so grateful for.  Nurture and the entire CFC team of staff are so professional and friendly.

Not everyone understands what being an egg donor is all about, it’s not just taking a bunch of pills and injections, you are helping someone/a couple become a family.   The entire process is humbling and to have the opportunity to help someone in need is heart-warming.

I’m looking forward to being an egg donor again in the future.

To my recipient – may this be the start of an amazing journey, I hope that it is everything you hoped for – and lots more!”
