What led you to become an Egg Donor?
What led me to become an egg donor is the inspiration in my heart to help others. I knew a few people very close to me who struggled with infertility, and seeing the type of emotional pain it caused for them played a huge part in inspiring me to want to help others who are in need. I also have a daughter of my own who is the light, love, and happiness that fills my world. I want others to be able to experience this type of love that a child can bring into your life. I find great happiness in being able to assist others, and something as great as playing a part in building a family, I couldn’t feel more fortunate to be a part of. Being able to give the gift of a life brings me much joy knowing that I can participate in helping someone have a family, and I want to be able to help as much as I can.
Who was your most significant support person(s) throughout your journey?
My best friend has by far been my most significant support person throughout my egg donation journey! She is an egg donor herself, so we are able to be of wonderful support to one another and stand by each other’s side through our journeys.
What made you decide to be closed/semi-open/open with your Intended Parents?
In my heart, I find that wanting to help others is not going to come with any limitations for me. When I commit to wanting to help others, I will be there and I will do it to the best of my abilities. I’m all-in or nothing. Being anonymous, semi-open, or fully open with my Intended Parents is something I decided to do because I want to make sure that the Intended Parents are comfortable with any option and have a donor willing to commit to any of these that they find best fit for their family and lifestyle.
Do you have advice for women who are interested in becoming an Egg Donor?
If you are considering becoming an egg donor, my advice to you would be to find it in your heart to commit to the process and be serious about becoming a donor. These Intended Parents have undergone a lot of emotional and physical distress for years, and rely on donors as their strong hope in creating the family that is beyond important to them. Stay inspired through the journey and remember the incredible, life changing hope you are giving to others through your selfless dedication. Most importantly, enjoy your egg donation journey and be very proud of yourself and your generosity throughout.
I have had a lot of friends reach out to me lately about becoming an egg donor and where I recommend. I have led them all to FSC because I absolutely love the team and have enjoyed being a part of this family. My experience with FSC has been amazing! They make me feel very comfortable and safe and are always there for you throughout the entire process. They were very helpful and friendly through my journey and I couldn’t me more grateful for them.
