Egg Donation is a third party reproduction technique used as part of assisted reproductive technology (ART). By donating eggs, one woman is able to help another individual or couple conceive a child or children that they otherwise could not. There are countless families around the world that were made possible thanks to this miraculous process and the wonderful women who made the choice to assist those who are unable to achieve pregnancy.
The compassionate women who choose to become Egg Donors are inspired to do so for a variety of reasons – from deep sympathy for infertile couples, to the love and joy they’ve experienced from and for their own children and the desire to give others the same. Below you’ll find some of the reasons TeamFSC Egg Donors have for their desire to provide the gift of life for a hopeful individual or couple. We’d love to hear your reason, too!
“I would like to be an egg donor to give another couple/individual the chance of a family. I know how much my children mean to me and the love and joy they bring to my life. I would love to give someone the chance of that love and joy.”– Egg Donor “E”
“My fiancé’s cousin is unable to have children. She’s in a committed and loving relationship. She once told me that her dream would be to be able to have children. That she would feel complete. But because of an underlying disease, she is unable to conceive or carry a child in her womb. She always tells me how much she enjoys seeing photos of my son and that she lives through them and tells me how lucky I am to have him. That’s true. I thought to myself, wow, I am lucky. So many things can go wrong, so many families waiting for a blessing like mine, and for some it simply is not possible. I want to help a family in a similar situation. I want to be part of that hope and miracle that would allow them to feel complete.” – Egg Donor “C”
“My favorite moment of the day is when I walk in the door after work and my oldest runs up to me to give me a huge hug and tell me about his day, and my youngest smiles and squeals with excitement. I am so lucky to be able to experience that each and every day, and I would love to be able to give a family the chance to experience that as well.” – Egg Donor “K”
“I want to help families who are serious about having a baby and want to start a family. I want to be able to give them just that. A happy, loving couple who want nothing more than to have a beautiful family, but can’t. I would love to be able to see the spark in their eyes and the love in their heart for that special something I helped them create and achieve.” – Egg Donor “D”
“I want to help families that can’t have children on their own. If my genetics were a perfect fit for his or her family then I’d love to do that for someone.” – Egg Donor “J”
“I would like to be able to aid in giving someone the opportunity of a lifetime and the biggest blessing there is. I believe that individuals who become parents through Egg Donation would make some of the best parents possible as they have awaited the opportunity for so long. When the opportunity is presented, they are ready to jump in with arms wide open. Many people out there are parents due to circumstance and biology and nothing more, but parents from planning and eagerness, I am sure will work the hardest in this important and chosen role.” – Egg Donor “S”
“My mother and stepfather wanted a child so badly, but my mother wasn’t able to carry a child. I know how much they wanted a child and tried with a surrogate. Ultimately, they did not have a child, but I knew that one day I would want to be a surrogate to be able to provide that service to someone. After having my own child and going through the process of pregnancy, labor, and delivery, I decided that being a surrogate would never be possible for me. I had a normal pregnancy, but I never fully felt like myself when I was pregnant. I felt like someone had taken over my body and I didn’t like that feeling. It wasn’t until recently I found out about egg donation and decided that I can still fulfil my purpose, just in a different way.” – Egg Donor “C”
“I would like to help a couple or individual fulfill their dream of becoming a parent and raising a child. It is such a special thing to be a woman and provide a womb for an egg to grow. I think providing a healthy egg to a potential mother is a unique and beautiful experience.” – Egg Donor “L”
“After I had my two girls, I couldn’t imagine life without them. I want to be able to give that to someone.” – Egg Donor “B”
“I would love to be an Egg Donor because I love knowing that I am helping other families grow and have something special. It makes me excited to help others have a child to love and care for. I want others to experience the love a child/baby has to offer. I know a lot of women can’t experience the pregnancy/birthing/labor part, but to be able to hold your baby for the first time is unconditional and I would love to allow others to experience that. I want a intended mother or father to feel what I felt. It’s the best feeling ever. The joy it would give me would be amazing. I want to help others and I would love to find a cure or help those who can’t bare child, but for now the closest I can get to helping is donating; to allow those who have trouble the chance to be parents. The chance to be happy and to love with no barriers. I grieve for those intended parents and I want to be the one who helps them. I want to help them be able to hold that baby they have been longing for.” – Egg Donor “H-L”
“I want to become an egg donor because I want to be able to give a couple or someone the opportunity to be able to have a family. I want people to have the chance that I was given… To be able to have my baby. I want to help people experience the joys of having a living thing growing inside them, getting to feel every movement and then getting to meet their baby for the first time. I want others to have that feeling I got every time.” – Egg Donor “T”
“I do not plan on having any more children. I have one perfect beautiful baby boy and I am perfectly happy and content with that, so I figured: why not donate my eggs and help somebody else have what I have. Being a mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Even on the rough days I can’t help but to feel blessed. So I can only imagine what it would be like if I weren’t able to concieve and didn’t have my baby boy.” – Egg Donor “C”
“My love for my children is out of this world, and I can’t imagine someone not being able to have that.” – Egg Donor “L”
“I would like to make someone as happy as I am when I hear my child call me ‘Mother’!” – Egg Donor “A”
“I have considered being an egg donor for a long time now but have only now decided to do it because of my experience with my baby nephew. He was, to put it politely, a surprise, and he is the best thing that could have happened to our family. But I know multiple couples who have tried and tried for years to have a child, couples who would be amazing parents and who want nothing more than to have a baby, and I have seen how hard it has been on them to not have this gift. And to see how a couple who was not in any way planning on having a child can, without going through any of the steps these other couples have gone through, have such an amazing addition to their family, it makes me realize that the fact that I have this ability and no intention of using it for many more years if at all seems like such a wasted opportunity to give back. If I can take a natural ability that I am not using and turn that into a life-changing gift for a couple who needs it, that is beyond thrilling for me. I don’t have much money or time to donate to important causes at this stage in my life, but this is a way that I can give back and truly change a family’s life, and I would love to be chosen and be able to give this gift.” – Egg Donor “H”
“Carrying, birthing, and raising my children have been the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. I would be blessed and honored to help a family or individual achieve their dreams of having a child.” – Egg Donor “D”
“To help ease the emotional and physical pain couples/individuals encounter for not having the ability to conveive a child. My mission and purpose is to give the next individual the gift of utter hope, joy, pease, and gratitude of bearing a child.” – Egg Donor “K”
“My sister is gay and will have to seek out sperm donation with her partner when they are ready to have children. Seeing her struggle and the way people look at her when she explains that she will need a donor, breaks my heart. Not everyone is open to the idea of her not only being gay, but also the thought of donation. You have wonderful people all over the world whom are not able to have children of their own because of circumstances they have no control over. For those who have the same sex partner, you can’t help who you fall in love with and I believe they have the same rights of any heterosexual. And for those who physically can’t reproduce should never have to feel like they are not worthy or that they were made that way for a reason. I am passionate about giving people the opportunity to have children of their own, not only with my sister in mind, but all the other loving, wonderful people out there who can’t wait to be parents!” – Egg Donor “A”
“I would like to be an Egg Donor for two main reasons: First, on behalf of the LGBT community and second for the women who desire to be a mother. My sister is a lesbian and even though she is able to provide her own eggs, I know that when she is ready to have children she will rely on sperm donation. In addition, one of my best friends was recently diagnosed with PCOS and is worried she will be infertile; she is also a lesbian. She is a prime example of a woman who could need to rely on egg and sperm donations. Ultimately, I want to be able to make a difference in others’ lives; it is what I set out to do in my personal life and in my profession. I am in my mid-20s and would love to have a child of my own, but have not found it to be the “right” time for me, which is why I want to be a part of someone else’s “right” time. I am a hopeless romantic who has not found my life partner, but cannot wait to meet him and start a family of my own.” – Egg Donor “C”
“I have a grand total of thirteen (yes, 13) siblings. This includes three fully biological brothers, two half-brothers, four step-brothers, one step-sister, and three adopted brothers (see next paragraph). As I’m sure you can imagine, growing up was intense. We didn’t always all get along, and our dynamics seem insane to any outsider. But family and siblings are my norm. Without all of these hooligans I call my siblings and without my silly, crazy parents, I wouldn’t be anywhere near where I am in my life today.
It is because of our ridiculous dynamics that I feel strongly about alternative ways to having children. Adoption has obviously affected my life directly, as a total of three of my brothers were adopted. My oldest brother was adopted at the age of 14, when I was just 5 years old. I am also going to be gaining two more beautiful brothers from adoption in the near future! While I do not have a lot of knowledge of or direct connection to the area of fertility, I am very interested in learning more and becoming directly involved. It seems like the perfect next step in my life!
Because of this, I feel that I have a unique, wonderful opportunity here. I am a young, healthy, intelligent woman, and I would love to be able to help an individual or couple bring his/her/their bundle of joy into the world. Family is everything to me, and being able to help another create their own family would be incredibly fulfilling. “ – Egg Donor “S”
“I believe it is an amazing gift to offer a child to a family who really wants the experience of raising one.” – Egg Donor “H”
