My story of becoming an egg donor is probably a little different than most. In June 2014, I was not in a good economic situation. I was working very hard and had up to three jobs at one point. Two of my coworkers then brought up the idea of becoming an egg donor. I had no idea what exactly that meant and what it involved doing. Upon researching and asking my gynecologist questions, one of the places they recommended me to apply to was Family Source Consultants. While completing the egg donor application I began having mixed feelings about the egg donation process. I didn’t know anyone else who had been an egg donor before, but I do know a mother who has been the recipient of an egg donation. After speaking to her my whole view of the whole process changed immensely. Tears filled her eyes when she thought back of her frustration and remembering how heartbroken she was every time she tried to have a baby and it never succeeded. Knowing that having a child completes a family for couples who can’t bear kids is very fulfilling. When I am at work at the children’s hospital, I see many families everyday who regardless of the child’s disease, the parents give their unconditional love to them and that is amazing. Seeing parents who have had children via egg donation and who give their unconditional love as if it were genetically theirs and devoting their time and care to them as much as possible made my journey as an egg donor such a positive experience. I am so happy to have been able to give an extraordinary, life changing gift to someone for the very first time in my entire life. Ultimately, after listening to previous intended parents and understanding their story, my reason for donating was to help them have the baby they had wanted for so long. This is the reason I would do it again
