We spent 2 years trying to conceive naturally and then 3 additional years being treated by multiple (4 to be exact) doctors trying to find the best solution for us to start our family. We eventually had to give up on my eggs after several rounds of IVF, both fresh and frozen. Eventually we were given the greatest gift from a total stranger, the gift of life. We were approached via social media by a person who had been following along on our journey for quite some time. She offered her eggs to us and we are so thankful that we took her up on her offer. We traveled to Georgia in March 2016 and she officially became our egg donor. One June 16th, 2016 we transferred embryo number 10, our first embryo created with a donor egg, and it turned out to be successful. We welcomed baby girl Georgia June on February 22, 2017.
Although it did not happen the way that we ever imagined it to, we are so fortunate to be able to create a family in the non-traditional way. This blog has become not only about infertility, but also about educating others about different ways that families are created.
