Egg Donor WITHOUT an Agency

I'm Laura and I am currently working with an egg donor agency as a donor. I'm about to start taking all of my meds/injections next week to prepare my eggs for retrieval next month. After everything is complete it is going to cost the recipients around $20,000+, which is a lot of money to most people. I am willing to donate my eggs to a happily married couple without an agency to save you thousands of dollars. Of course, I still want to be compensated my time. An attorney will need to be hired to draw up all legal documents releasing me of all parental rights if a child is born.

I have been with my husband for 11 years, married for 3, and we have a beautiful goofy 17 mo old son. I had a fabulous pregnancy and enjoyed every aspect of it. Luckily, we were able to conceive within the first week of trying so I cannot imagine what it's like to not be able to conceive. A few of the mothers at my son's school used egg donors to conceive their babies (twins) and their stories
