And then she freaked

I am in the process of posting my ads up to find a home for our embryos.

I feel sick to my stomach.

I cannot even find the words to explain the terror, excitement and deep sorrow it brings me.

How can I possibly make it through this.

  2. Oh Roccie. I'm sorry you are feeling this way. :-(

    You may know that we donated our embryos this past summer, so I have been through this experience. I'd be happy to talk with you about it, if you'd like; just drop me an email.

  6. Wishing I could adopt your embryos but with my uterus, well I'm not sure they'd make it.

  7. I can only gently pat your hand and say that you are an amazing woman with an amazing family, and that whatever you choose will end up feeling right.

  9. Keep repeating to yourself " this is an amazing gift that's too good to not share". Maybe that will help. If not listen to what the other commenters said " you are amazing" because you are.

  10. I have been the recipient of 8 donor embryos from two different couples. While it didn't work out for us (only miscarriages), I am forever grateful for the gift they shared with us.

    Not many people in this life can give such a wonderful gift to another couple. The gift of life is truly like no other.

    Wishing you peace as you figure out what works for you.

    They lost their 2 beautiful children to a heart abnormality and are now considering donor embryo's. It's an amazing gift!
