Sperm and egg donors

I just want to say thank you!!

To those of you who donate eggs, or whose SO's donate sperm, your gift is such a blessing to infertile families!! I was snuggling with my nephew this evening and it really struck me that even though the idea of his donor is kind of abstract (since he was anonymous), his gift is so very real and concrete. He wouldn't exist without someone's gift of sperm donation. I know it can be an controversial subject, but whe you are actually holding a baby who was conceived via donor gametes, it's such a priceless and amazing thing.

I would love to donate eggs but I can't. Even though I have extremely fertile eggs, have had 3 perfectly healthy children, they won't let me donate because I am over weight.... How much sense does that make??

Really! I think it's a little silly to have restrictions on BMI since so much of it is lifestyle. I wouldn't be able to donate, either because of that.

I have 5 great kids but I'm 40 now so I guess I'm out. But congrats to the others.

I don't agree with strictly anonymous donation. Luckily the donor my sister & BIL chose allows open communication once my nephew turns 18.
