Leyshoja.... I've been following along on the Donor Eggs South Africa thread, in order to get ideas and start planning. Someone on there has been keeping a record of Bubhub women going to SA for DE, and recently added that their 2014 success rate was 56%. On one of their previous threads they had the stats for 2013 and they were also about that. I thought that this was really good, considering that those going to SA for DE, have obviously had many failed cycles here with their own eggs. It wasn't looking at how many eggs were transferred but rather how many successful attempts vs failed attempts. Definitely something to think about.
Faith.... very interesting cases pro and con for fostering leading to adopting. I really think that the home environment plays a very big part of who we are, but yes, I guess there's a part of everyone that can't be changed, e.g. if a child's super shy, or damage caused by drugs or alcohol during pregnancy. I would still do it though too. I've only known people who've fostered older children, so understand that many behaviours would already be ingrained.
