    Default Seeking a Donor Angel in Melbourne

    Hi everyone,
    I'm Felicia. My fiance, Tristrim, and I are just starting our IVF journey, and are going to need the help of an egg or embryo donor . Although I am 42 years old, my age is not our reason for needing this help; I was born with a condition called Turners Syndrome, which has rendered me unable to produce eggs, but otherwise I'm able to naturally carry a baby to term as my uterus is normal. Given our age (Tristrim is 40), we do not have any family or friends under the age of 35, at least none that we would feel comfortable asking for this huge a favour. About us: I am a music therapist who longs to have a child with whom she can share the joy of making music, while Tristrim works in Information Technology, and would love to have a child to teach the finer points of Science Fiction, and games such as Dungeons and Dragons. I know some of you may have doubts about donating to an older couple, but I hope that, given our infertility is not age related, and we are both young at heart, there might be someone who will consider us when choosing to whom to give this amazing gift. Please contact us via PM or email at tandfelbaby@gmail.com. Actual expenditure incurred on medical expenses and travel will be reimbursed.
    Thanks

    I thought I'd pop back to just clarify, in case anyone was wondering, that my Turners Syndrome hasn't had any effect on my overall health - my IVF doctor has made very sure that I'm healthy and able to safely bring a child to term.

    Good luck on your search for a donor!

    Bumping this for you @feliciab I wish you all the best.
    This is close to my heart, as my DD also has Turner Syndrome, and one day may go down the same path as yourself
