It took me some time to digest the fact that I cannot produce healthy eggs. It was a strange and depressing feeling at first. When our doctor first proposed egg donation, I couldn’t shake the thought that my baby will be born from a stranger. What changed my views is the fact that I will become a mother after all. It was my greatest longing after all. While my baby won’t be genetically related to me, she will grow in me and be a part of me.
