The day I dropped our donor gift off was super emotional for me. I basically balled the entire drive to the center, about 45 minutes away from my house. When I got there and was about to walk into the center, I got all choked up again. I really had to pull myself together before I went inside to drop the gift off.
Our donor is anonymous. I don’t know. I don’t know what she looks like as an adult. I’ve only seen photos of her as a baby or young child. She sure was cute! I won’t ever meet her unless our child or children decide to try to meet her after they turn 18 and they want me and Steve to go with them to meet her. I have nothing but extreme gratitude for our donor. She’s an angel in my eyes. She’s given us the gift of life. I will talk more about how we chose our donor and the process we went through to make sure we chose the right donor for us. That will be a much longer and more detailed post. Choosing the right donor for us, was a lengthy, sometimes frustrating and painful process.
For now, I want to show you the heart felt card and beautiful gift we chose and gave her to show our appreciation and gratitude. We hope she loved it and felt our extreme gratitude. She was paid to be our donor but had to go thru as much if not more than I have gone through to stimulate her ovaries to produce enough eggs that could be retrieved and then inseminated and turned into embryos. I will write more about the donor’s process when I elaborate on how and why we chose the donor we chose.
I have a video from the day that I dropped off our donor’s gift that I will embed once I figure out how to do that. Then you’ll get to experience the moment with me!
