I just wanted to say how inspiring your blog is. I'm about to begin donor egg treatment. It's been a long and difficult journey to get here, and we still don't know what will happen, but your blog is a real inspiration, and offers some fantastic validation that I'm not alone and my feelings are all normal. Thank you.


I just wanted to say I posted to say I"m sorry for my comment on the last post! I see how what I said sounded like I was against egg donation, which I am definitely not, and for those going through the egg donation process or who have donated eggs that sounded like a personal judgment. It was a mistake! To clarify, we chose embryo donation of embryos created thanks to egg donation. That was our path. I wish you peace during this special season and may 2017 bring you all the child you so rightly desire.


Yes to all of this! A closed door, an ending, a devastation etc always hurts and is always hard but is also forces a new path or a new door opened. The realization of this helps so much along the way. I always tell myself that each hard day or hard news or hard milestone I face during IF is one day, one devastation, one milestone closer to when I finally have my baby. When this hell is finally over. I know that those folks that aren't able or open to alternative family planning (egg or embryo donation, adoption etc) might not be able to have this perspective. My heart aches for that position. I think that type of grieving or coping is a different and tougher road to travel. But knowing that we are willing to go down any path, accrue debt to complete our family gave me hope that each day was one day closer. Even if it felt far away. Thank you for this reminder. Xo
