Hi there all
well heres my story.im 43 and have had a successfull career as an actor.some years ago my partner passed away and I decided to have a child on my own with a friend as donor.i now have a wonderfull 5 year old girl who I treasure,and 4 frozen embryos.unfortunatly the pregnancy messed my body around so much that Im told it would risk my life to try for a sibling for my beuatifull girl. I cant take that risk so im faced with the dilemna of how to proceed.i have considered donating the embryos but feel unsure due to the fact that I want another child so much myself,wether that would be too hard.
Someone suggested surrogacy, and then donating any embryos left if a child is concieved for me, but I assumed that it would not be an option for me as a sole parent. I looked into the india option but feel even more unsure of that as a way to proceed ,it just dousnt feel right.
All i can say is that i am financially and emotionally secure ,i own my house and now lecture at a tertiary institution 3 evenings a week which provides very well for my family.I am a playfull and creative person and a dedicated mum with a very happy and social child. I am also a musician and play duoble bass so music is a big part of our homelife.
i passionatly want to have another child and a sibling for my little girl,and I have strong support from godparents ,friends and family. My girl has a great relationship with her dad altho he is not in the role of a traditional father.
If there is anyone out there who can relate to this story,i would love to hear from you.all the best Karen
