I am Natalie, 33 years of age and my husband is 38. We have been married for 10 years. We started trying to conceive after few months of our marriage but nothing happened. Investigations with my Dr revealed that I have POF (when I was 24!) and he hasnít been able to explain why as all my tests indicate that I am extremely healthy. We were very upset as we have never thought we would have problems conceiving.
We started IVF in 1999 all the way until end of 2002. Despite numerous ICSI cycles we have not been successfull due to the poor quality of my eggs. We have experienced the trauma of infertility with lots of pain, tears, and heartache. We have been told our only chance to have kids will be through an egg or embryo donation. We couldnít imagine ourselves growing old, sad, lonely and living life without children. We advertised in a local child paper and we have fulfilled our dream to have a child with the help of a very kind lady. We were blessed with our gorgeous girl now 2 years. We love our angel donor, who is now a very close family friend, and we do see some of characters in our daughter, especially her care and love for others. We will always be honored, proud and deeply having a sense of gratitude toward two special people (our donor and her husband) who were ready to help as our path to start a family wouldnít have been possible without their support.
I enjoy being a mum so much but a bit worried that this experience may never happen again. When my daughter was one year I start trying for a second child. I went through a frozen cycle but unfortunately, the embryo did not survive the freezing/thawing cycle. Out of her deep loving concern about our struggle to have a second child, our angel donor came forward one more time for another donation. We were so grateful and felt like the luckiest couple in the world, but we losted our baby at 10 weeks.
My husband and I are a very loving, caring, hard working couple living in the western suburb of Sydney. My DH is self employed and I have a part-time job. We are offering our girl a stable family environment with quality care, lots of fun, and endless unconditional love. We are financially secure.
We dearly love to have another baby, and dream of giving our daughter a brother or sister. Our girl is very lovely and enjoys the company of other kids. We cannot imagine her as our only child and we do not want her to miss out growing up without a sibling to love, play (or even fight with), share the excitement of childhood. Now that our little one is desperate for company, we are hoping to find another angel donor.
We have been blessed to have our little girl but the choice of giving her a sibling has been taken away for us. Despite our draining emotions, we would like to have another child but without the help of another angel we canít do so. Our only hope is an extremely generous and compassionate woman, who is preferably 35 or under, and who is willing to donate her eggs. Payment for eggs is inappropriate (illegal) in Australia, but we will be allowed to cover all medical, travel costs and out of pocket expenses.
We would be eternally grateful to you for considering giving us the gift of life and the chance to give our daughter a sibling. If you think you may have the capacity to make that unique contribution, please either PM me or email email@example.com
