View Full Version : Young adelaide couple looking for our angel egg donor - please read our story
We are a young married couple in our early 30ís who, after 3 years of trying to conceive and IVF treatments, have been given the devastating news that we have no eggs left that will fertilise. Our last hope of experiencing the miracle of pregnancy and birth that we long for and of fulfilling our lifelong dream of becoming loving parents, is to find an egg donor. Our diagnosis of premature ovarian failure has been such a huge shock, firstly because of my young age, but also bacause we always believed that we would start trying to fall pregnant and that within a year or so it would just happen, as it has for all of our friends. The first year of TTC we did actually fall pregnant but sadly suffered a miscarriage at 6 weeks. I can still vividly remember how excited we both were, and how wonderful I felt as my body began to change, for those 2 weeks when we thought our dream of having a baby was going to come true. Now we (as Iím sure all who have sufferred the loss of a pregnancy do) look at our friendís children who were concieved at that same time, with longing and sadness for what might have been for our child. Our diagnosis of infertility has been, and still is, a huge burden to bear - I myself, despite my happy-go-lucky outlook, have spent many nights quietly crying myself to sleep. But we have been able to carry each other through it thanks to a positive, happy, down-to-earth outlook on life, and thanks to our very loving supportive families. We are well travelled, very open-minded, socially responsible people. We are also well educated and financially secure and long to be able to guide our own child through life with a sense of social responsibility, love for those around them, and passion for learning throughout life. The pain of our loss of fertility is deepened by the knowledge that we are both lovely, confident, level-headed, caring people who would be wonderful parents and who are able to give so much, if given the chance. We have been deeply devoted and in love with one another for many years and have always felt it was our destiny to become parents together. So the pain and heartache we feel at the thought that this might not happen is difficult to bear. Our journey ahead now in our search to become parents, is no longer something that we can make happen without help. We are now at the mercy of a caring, compassionate woman wanting to step in and help us. If you have already experienced the incredible joy of parenthood, are aged between 23 and 34 yrs old, live in Adelaide, and think you might be able to help us with our dream, please contact us to find out more via email at

Good luck with your ad Jess:thumbsup:
I hope that is a fabulous woman out there who is willing to help you with your dream to have a family.
Hi Jess :wave:
Wishing you lots of love and luck for your Angel ED. You will be a wonderful Mummy and Daddy. :bee:
Thanks for the messages of hope and support girls. This is all very new to us and it is so reassuring that we are not alone in what we are going through. Wishing you both success in your search and your journeys also. Might bump into you on AED sometime!:wave: Jess xx
Good Luck to you and your partner.
I hope to become an AED one day. But I am a little young at the moment.
Good luck, Jess!!
Two Sweeties, just what we need,:sunshine: !!!
May you two bring us good luck, till you are both older!!!!
I hope by now you have found a donor to help.
I have also been on the IVF journey .....
Justed wanted to send a big hug and my thoughts are with you and all our fellow sufferers.
I have found it really helps to find someone someone locally for support who is going though the same thing to share the ups and (mainly )downs with i.e eat chocolate and drink tea....Also have you tried accupucture -recent studies have shown it can help implantation !!!!!
All the best luck in the world
Thanks so much everyone for your messages of support and hope! If there is one good thing to come out of all of the struggle and sadness as we go through all of this treatment and continue searching, it is the incredible care and support we all feel for each other. If you didn't go through this hardship you wouldn't know just how many people out there really care about you! ...thanks Cath for the advice re finding support close to home - I have just made contact with someone in Adelaide who is my age and is also looking for a donor, so we will catch up with her for coffee next week which will be great. :wave: Jess x
Hi There Jess,
It was so lovely to meet you yesterday and talk about our journeys as if with old friends! Im sending you lots of positive thoughts to you and your friend.. and hope that you can start the ED journey soon! :wave:
Lots of love,
Hi Kerryn :wave: it was so lovely to catch up with you too hun. What a great thing to come out of all of this struggle - a beautiful new friend :hugs: hope things are working out for you and Aida. Will be in touch again in the near future. No more news from me just yet re donor cycles - will let you know when we have done a bit more homework. Take care of yourself. Jess :goodvibes:
To all of the incredibly supportive people who have sent me words of encouragement and who are wishing us well, I am very excited to let you all know that we have found a donor!! :smiliedance: She is a friend of mine and we will be starting a cycle in August if all goes to plan. We are all really looking forwards to seeing where this takes us.... and hopefully we can bring our dream of having a child to fruition in the next year. To anyone out there still thinking about donating eggs, I really hope that you will keep that thought alive, as it is such a beautiful generous thing to do for someone else and there are so many other loving couples out there searching for a donor. It can be a long daunting and consuming process for donors and recipients, but it is so worthwhile. With love and thanks to all of you for your caring. :) Jess xx
Hi Jess, I hope you find your donor. I have been contemplating donating myself. But at my age, BAH who knows LOL.
Take care, and good luck :fingerscrossed:
Now that Jess is talking with a potential donor, we will close her ad here for the moment to help other potential donors to navigate this section.
Very best wishes for you in the future Jess, we would love for you to keep us posted in the egg donation issues section and if you ever need this thread unlocked, drop me a PM.
