When I was 16, I was told I would never be able to get pregnant. Just before I met my husband, I saw a specialist who told me that while I would be able to carry, I would need an egg donor to get pregnant. When my husband and I were ready to have a baby, we initially thought it would be easy. Well, it wasn’t. We were offered eggs from many well-meaning people who changed their minds before donating. After years of heartbreak, we finally turned to DEBUSA which made our dream to have a child possible. Two IVF cycles, two different egg donors, 13 eggs, 4 embryos, 3 transfers, and 102 progesterone shots later, we finally have our baby girl! She was born July 24th 2015. You don’t need to share DNA to build a family – I love my daughter as though we do.
