Beautiful words from a special egg donor recipient

thank-you-heart
“I also wanted to say thank you to you and the Nurture Team.
You all have been such an amazing support to me throughout this whole process, and it truly does mean the world to me.  Especially because there were times I felt I was going to loose my mind with all the added hormones haha, but a steady and calm mind and tons of love and support can do wonders on a personal journey like this.
So thank you for all the emails and constant check in’s and for answering the phone every time I freaked out about something that was normal – lol.
You are all truly incredible people and you are all amazing for creating magic in people’s lives on a daily basis by standing by them and helping them, creating their dreams into realities.
Much love and blessings to all of you.
xoxo”

“With much gratitude to you and your team”

pink heart 5“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

Our beautiful egg donor’s journey comes to an end….

hand copy 2“So today is the end of my journey as an egg donor, but a new one for my recipient.
The Doctor retrieved 20 beautiful eggs today. I hope and pray that when they do the blood test that it will come back positive.
I feel a little sad because there won’t be visits to the Dr anymore, I’m going to miss all the friendly faces at the Cape Fertility Clinic. I would like to say thank you to Dr Matebese – she’s just awesome! Thanks to the Nurse who gave me two warm water bottles and two blankets because I was shivering after the retrieval, but there was no pain at all, and also to the other kind nurse who held my hand until I was asleep, thank you very much! They are all such wonderful people.
Thank you to you Melany for your support, I do appreciate it and to the rest of the Nurture team, you’re awesome!
A message to my recipient:
Thank you very much for choosing me to be your donor, I’m sure there were plenty to choose from but still you chose me. I feel so blessed and honoured, oh gosh I’m gonna cry…
You have no idea what this means to me, I cannot describe it in words, even if I want to.
The gift: I have no idea how you knew I would love it so much, I couldn’t wait to get home to fit it on. I totally love it, thank you so very much, I appreciate it!
In the meantime I’ll be praying non-stop for a miracle.
Thanks again to everyone.

Awesome message from one of our egg donors on her Nurture application

pink heart“Dear prospective recipient,

As long as I can remember, I have believed that choice is the most important thing we have. Some families were blessed with a healthy compliant body, one that would allow them to thrive and grow a baby, but there are some very deserving families, that for whatever reason, have not been blessed with the choice they so rightfully deserve. I want to help, as best as I can, in the only way I can. My body had eggs, she has stored them away and is waiting to use them to create life, I will never need them all and after she has worked so tirelessly to produce these little specks of life, I at least want them to have the opportunity to be useful, rather than falling away every month.

Choice is the thing that makes us human, it is the very core of our being and the very thing that allows us to be who we are. I want to give you the option to have a choice, to be able to say yes, we can try and maybe one month, when you pee on that stick, it will say positive. That little choice that I made has given you life. I don’t have money, I don’t have a lot of time, but I have this and if just one person is successful in using my choice for their family, then I have done my job.”
