New Here--Considering Egg Donation

Hi there! I'm not exactly sure where to begin...I'm Nicole and I used to visit on the 2007 Beach Babies playgroup board a lot. I am 26 with two beautiful, healthy children and now I'm considering donating my eggs to someone who has fertility problems. My only reservation is whether I'll have an emotional response to the donation process. It's something I had considered in the past but was unsure if it would be the right decision or not. Now that I'm putting some serious thought into it, I'd love to have some advice about anyone's experiences with egg donation and IVF in general.
Now that I'm reading what I just wrote it sounds silly and selfish for me to wonder why I would have any reservations about donating, but I guess I'm just afraid that I'll see some child at the mall someday who looks a little like me and wonder if I had a part in that, or that I'll constantly be worried that the child is well cared for...Maybe my brain is just working too hard here, but that's why I'm posting. Please help me calm my fears!
