    Question Think we need new embryos.

    I am told that I need to believe that it will happen and it will.I have been doing that but, sometimes it is hard.I have been told that it will happen for me because what goes around comes around.I help others all the time I ift them up when they are down I help them smile instead of frown.I need an embryo and that is where the problem lies. There are so few brave women who can go through embryo donation. So many women become attactched to those little ice cells. They think of them as a baby as a child. Women worry that their children will feel cheated because their mum gave away their brother/sister. They worry that any child born as a result of their donated embryos will come looking for them and will be angry for being given away or feel like they were abandoned. .................................................. .................................................. .... An embryo has the potential for life, the potential to be born, the potential to become part of a family. Children do not think of an embryo as a baby, and as long as they are never lied to and always have all thier questions answered with honesty they are very understanding. You are the one who teaches them about what you have done and why you did it. They wont think you have given away their baby sister/brother, they will think you are very special because you helped a lady to have a baby. Any child created from donated embryos in my family will be told the truth at an age appropriate time.I hope to raise the child with the love and respect that would be deserved by the donor angel. They wont feel abandoned they wont be angry. I hope that they would in fact be very gratefull for being given the chance to be born. I hope this answers any questions you may have I also hope this will help you to make the very hard decision about embryo donation. If you want to know more about my story so far I have a thread in the Egg Donor sub forum.

    Hi, yes I am the same Heather that has a post in the Egg Donor Needed forum.
    So who am I, maybe some of my many freinds can also post in here as to who I am and who Rob is.
    I am 4 weeks off turning 48 and I now have two years left to have our much wanted family. The only way that Rob and I can have our family is if there is a very special person out there willing to bless us with embryos.
    I know some of you will want to know why I dont look for an egg donor and a sperm donor, well I could but, I dont feel comfortable with that, I want to be able to tall any child we are blessed with that they were created from the love of a couple, that they were wanted and loved from the moment they were created and through that love those embryos created were gifted to us.
    Also if that child became ill and needed to contact thier genetic family it would be far easier if it is a couple. Also we would like to have some money left over to provide for any child that is born. Orrignaly Rob and I were hopeing for 2 or 3 children now it is looking very unlikely that we will have more than one, some days it feels like we wont even have one.
    Rob and I believe that being a loveing parent has nothing to do with genetics, it doesnt matter what colour the childs eyes are or thier hair a child is a gift to be loved and treated with kindness, to be taught right from wrong, to be able to become all they hope to become, to be encouraged in everything they strive to achieve.
    If you feel we could be the ones you would like to help please pm me with a list of your questions, nothing is out of bounds, we will endeavour to answer honsetly and openly anything you ask us.

    Why is it I can help others to come together and help them to start their journey but, I am still waiting. I love to help others, it is rewarding to help play a small part in helping their dreams to come true but, why cant it also happen for me. Maybe one day I will be blessed, I just hope and pray it is soon.
    I wish all the best to the four couples that are on their way now.
    I cant wait to follow your journey

    Thank you Ashanti, love that name.
    I hope an Angel is willing to bless me.
    It gets hard some days to keep my hopes and dreams alive but, what I am hopeing for is a very precious and rare gift I just pray that some one can see how much I have to give to a child and how much love I have to share.
    one day it will happen and hopefuly that will be one day very soon.

    Booking my appointment with the councelor within the next 2 weeks. I will be as ready as I can be then.
