In the home stretch

I'm sure a lot of you have seen this donor egg child video, but for those who haven't - take a look! 16 year old Allegra gives great insight into what life is like knowing that she was conceived with help from an egg donor. I think it's so important for people to teach their children about their identity at a young age. There are age-appropriate ways to teach kids about egg donors, and my social worker was open enough to share some of these tactics during our first session. A few women have even made kiddie books to help parents talk to their kids about egg donation! Seriously, that book is too cute. I appreciate that Shady Grove takes the time to prepare their recipient parents on the multitude of obstacles they have to overcome - as well as their donors - which makes me even more confident that my eggs will be going to a great parents.

I can't believe the application process is almost FINALLY over. My last social worker appointment is this week, accompanied by my loving boyfriend, and I'm done!... Well, for now - then the real work begins!
