“Working with Family Source Consultants as an Egg Donor has been an amazing experience. I am so grateful to Jessica for all she has done, as well as my friend who passed along FSC’s information to me. Word of mouth really goes a long way. When I first contacted Jessica for information on the process, I knew this was something I was really interested in.
I consider myself very lucky to have the ability to donate my eggs. My passion is helping people in any way I can. Thanks to this entire process, I was able to pay for my education in the medical field, where I get to help people every day.
Back in December of 2012, I began the process of filling out the application and meeting both Jessica and the psychologist in person. All my questions and concerns were addressed and I was so excited to start my journey. Shortly after, I received my first phone call from Jessica letting me know I was matched with a couple from Spain. I was fortunate to meet these Intended Parents in person. After meeting them I could not wait for retrieval day to do my part. They were truly deserving of a family; such a wonderful couple.
My second Intended Parents I met via Skype. They were also a wonderful couple from Spain and again I couldn’t wait until retrieval day. My medications were adjusted from my first cycle which made this process so much easier. I am so glad I decided to continue on.
Just last month I completed my third donation to a man from Italy. Unfortunately, I was in the process of moving from Illinois to Colorado while he was in Chicago. This was a very special donation to me though. And although I missed my opportunity to meet him, he left Jessica with a gift and letter for me. I started tearing up as I read the letter and have not taken off the necklace he brought back for me since.
Three successful egg donations later and I’m still as excited as ever to continue on my journey. For my first two donations, I was with an Illinois donor and my third one, a Colorado donor. I can say from being both an in-state and out-of-state donor that FSC really takes care of you no matter what. Jessica has been there for me 100% of the way, even making sure my move went well. I have met so many wonderful people during this process and can never give out enough thanks!
I am currently working on my fourth cycle and meeting my fifth Intended Parents from Switzerland via Skype this week!
Having both my fourth and fifth donations in the works, I’m starting to feel a bit sad that my egg donation journey is almost coming to an end. I knew I would get a lot out of donating, but I never knew I would get this much. I’ve completely fallen in love with this life-changing experience. After I start a family of my own, I hope to work with FSC again as a Surrogate.”
