((((hugs)))) Whitney!


I think I came to DE w/ a different perspective on DE b/c I am adopted, so I don't have a genetic tie to anyone in my family.

Hi Whitney,

I understand what you are going through as I have been there myself. I still wonder sometimes if I'll feel differently if we are blessed enough with a child from our frozen embryo that is a donor egg and my DH's sperm. But I finally realized that what I want is a family and if that means using someone else's egg then I'm o.k. with it. Even though the child will not be my biological child it will still be my child because I will carry that child in my womb, I will give birth to it, and I will care for it and love it with all my heart.

It is not an easy decision and it will be something you need to think about and get comfortable with before you move forward. This board is wonderful and these women are very supportive and most of us have been where you are. So ask questions, vent, or just share and hopefully you'll be able to feel comfortable with your final decision.

It wasn't an easy step for me either.
