Hi Everyone!


DH and I have poured over the donor profiles from SG and finally clicked the "reserve donor" button on the online database.

That's fantastic news!!!


Interesting how the frozen donor oocyte program has changed how it all works ... awesome that you only have to wait 30 days, and possibly only have to synch w/ one other person.
