One of our amazing egg donors recently shared her experience with known egg donation on RESOLVE New England’s blog. We’re thrilled they gave her the opportunity to give intended parents the unique perspective of a donor. Here’s what she had to say:
In the spring of 2014, I decided to explore becoming an egg donor. I had recently finished my Bachelor’s degree and decided to look further into what being an egg donor would entail. After looking through the websites of various agencies, I filled out the application with Circle to hopefully be picked by and matched with potential parents. My experience turned out to be more rewarding and fulfilling than I could have imagined at the time.
Within a few weeks, my contact at the agency reached out to let me know that there was a potential intended parent (IP), and that she had some questions for me to help make her decision. I was more than happy to answer all the additional questions to make her feel more confident that I was who she was looking for. It was actually pretty fun answering the questions she had for me, such as my ideal vacation or how my friends would describe me. When I received my response back from her, I knew that being an egg donor was going to be an incredible part of my life. She had picked all the same words I had. She had traveled all of the places I dream of going. How much our personalities overlapped left her in tears of happiness. Her heartfelt emails touched me, and I am honored to have been matched with her. CLICK TO READ THE FULL ARTICLE.
