Just joined the forum today so am very new and wanted to drop in and say hello! I've started to look into the brave new world of egg donation now after several very difficult years of IVF treatments. My eggs were OK when I started and I did have a healthy little baby boy a year ago but he tragically died on the day of his birth from an umbilical cord knot..... Now, given my age and now "not unlimited finances" due to all the previous IVF cycles, the fertility specialists are telling me my best (and last) chance of a baby is with an egg donor. But I am completely overwhelmed about where to start - do I try and find a lovely donor in Australia...? or Greece....? or South Africa.....? Thailand.....? USA......? Spain....? Yeh - will have to put my head down and do some research...... Anyway in meantime I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. Your stories give me so much hope and inspiration and keep me going! (I will probably post a hello in the South Africa thread as well, so you may see me pop up there too until I decide what direction I need to take - just a start of my journey. And got to figure out how to create my signature here too.... ) Thanks!
