BJO4 - Congratulations - OMG I can only imagine how that would feel. Well done, what a special time for you.
January - thank you so much for updating the register. It's got great information in there for us too, with how many were transferred & the result. Thank you.
Good news, FINALLY we have found our donor It was the hardest thing, I really didn't think it would be, but once I got into it, it was. I'm so relieved that , that part is over now, it was very overwhelming. Thank you to 2 of the ladies on this forum that I PM'ed and they felt the same, it really helped clear my head and I went back to basics and found her!! The agency I used ababysa.com was amazing. For anyone reading this that has just started looking, I highly recommend them and Gift ov Life. Both were extremely professional, and understanding, and put up with my numerous emails. If you have just started looking, what I also liked was that ababysa don't hold you to the fee you've paid or the agency, should the donor not pass her initial screening tests at the clinic. That was important to us, even though we chose a proven donor, so there shouldn't be any issues, I wanted to be assured that the agency had their hearts in the right place and wouldn't hold us ransom (just my opinion!) to the agency should something go wrong. I think they both offer a reduced fee of up to 30% should you choose to go back through them for another cycle/donor at a later date. The other 2 agencies I found really helpful and fair with refund polices etc was Nurture (more expensive than the others approx. $600+ dependant on which agency you're looking at) and Sunshine, who were really helpful. Hope that helps anyone that is just starting out.
