Below is a recent letter from an egg donor recipient, who wanted to express anonymously to her egg donor just how grateful she was.
I don’t know even where to begin with my gratitude to you. I know that you and I will never meet, but I want you to know every day I am so thankful you have given me and my husband hope to become parents. I think about the sacrifice it took for you to be selfless to help people have a family.
When I started the donor egg process, I have to admit I was thinking I wouldn’t find someone who matched me or had the same values as me. After reading your profile there were so many similarities. You and I were both softball players and we have a lot of the same physical features, but the biggest reason why I chose you was how you wanted your kids to be kind. That is what I have always wanted for my children.
I don’t think you realize what you have given to our family. We are now excited and hopeful for the future. When I was diagnosed with my form of infertility, which was premature ovarian failure, I was so scared and anxious about the future. We now have a plan something to look forward to. Please know we consider you an angel. I thank God every day for you giving us this opportunity. Both of us have longed for a baby for so long and because of you we are one step closer.
I hope that every woman that goes through this finds a donor that fits them as perfect as I did. I will continue to be thankful for you every day for the rest of my life. Once again thank you, thank you, thank you! I am forever grateful and you will always have a special place in our hearts.
Your donor egg recipient
