    Default Praying for the 'Greatest Gift of our lives' ...


    Hello

    Well, this is the first time for me to post on this site. I must admit that I am a little nervous but hopefully that will pass

    I have though, read some incredible, positive life changing stories from other lovely ladies in the forum and hope that somehow against all odds a miracle could happen for us as well. I would like to share with you our story in the hope that some wonderful lady may be out there and I thank you from the start for taking the time to read this …


    Ever since I can remember, I have longed for the day in my life when I would be a Mum. Not once did I ever think that this may not be the case.

    I did not meet the love of my life, by best friend and true soul mate until I was 36 years old. We then married and just knew that the next natural step for us was to create a child/family together through our special love. We are now both 42 years old and have been trying for the last 6 years to conceive and have been on an incredible quest and journey to achieve this.

    We have both had enjoyable, happy lives and have been successful through the years with our work and met some wonderful people along our life’s journeys. We have also been fortunate enough to have been brought up within loving families and have an abundance of caring and supportive friends. We also have a beautiful cat called Jessie who we call our ‘fury baby’ and love her to bits.

    We have had many unsuccessful attempts at creating a family including artificial inseminations, countless IVF ICSI cycles and other medical procedures along with being diagnosed with premature ovarian failure where the doctors advised that we are unable to do any more IVF cycles due to my own eggs not being viable and that our last and only chance to ever have a child together is through egg donation. We have also had a heart and gut wrenching experience of having a ‘known’ egg donor pulling out at the last minute which left us devastated at the time, but we certainly have not given up all hope as yet.

    You go through life doing the best you can and try to assume that all of your plans will come to fruition and when something as devastating as this happens to you, you begin to question so many things and ask yourselves “what have we done to deserve this?” We have always been people who genuinely want to help, support and care for others whenever we can and never thought there would come a time in our lives that we would be sincerely asking someone else to help us with one of the most precious gifts that life could offer.

    The emptiness of the possible thought of never having the sense of bonding, closeness, caring and nurturing of a child is too hard for us to contemplate at the present time. We try very hard not to feel sad at the thought of the possibility of never being parents and are trying to remain strong that some wonderful miracle will happen for us through the unique help of a generous egg donor.

    Although we have suffered much heartache and sorrow on the way, it has definitely brought us closer together as a couple and are still remaining positive and hopeful that we will be parents one day soon and have a very stong feeling that there is a special lady out there (or someone they may know) who will be able to help us.

    If you are aged between 18-30 and are a genuine egg donor willing to help us achieve our precious, long awaited dream, please contact us through a PM on this site or email lilypop@iinet.net.au. We are a Brisbane couple and if you would like to meet us we would welcome the chance to meet you. We would also be happy to respect your privacy if you wish to remain anonymous and would organise for any contact to be done through our Brisbane clinic.

    If you are that special someone, someone who is willing to give us the greatest gift - the gift of life, we hope and pray to hear from you very soon.

    Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to read our story and letting us share our intimate hopes and dreams with you.

    Good luck with your search. I am a donor on my first journey with a gorgeous couple I actually met on here so it does happen. Also www.eggdonationaustralia.com is a great support group for recipients and donors alike. Hope to see you there sometime

    this is a great ad that i would take Jenna's advice and also put on egg donation australia - the more places you put it up the better. I really hope to see you there and wish you all the luck in finding your donor.

    Hi ladies - sorry I've been a while in getting back to you. Unfortunately I've suffered quite a bad neck injury and have been bed-ridden for quite a few weeks but am now back on the mend and am back on line again and our quest of finding our beautiful donor. I couldn't wait to get better and get back to see if I had any new exciting messages that may have been waiting for me. I have been hoping and praying with all my might that a wonderful surprise will come our way very soon. I am taking all your advice and will post on the other sites you mentioned also and if there is any other advice that you could give me to try to help me on this journey, I would truly appreciate it. I've heard people saying that they've 'bumped' their messages up etc but not sure what this means?? Thank you again for your thoughts and caring - that means a lot to me xx
