So well done. I'm glad to actually "know" someone who was interviewed and gave an accurate representation of the process. I teared up when you did talking about how painful some of the memories still are for you. You have a beautiful family. Thanks for sharing the link.

xoxo, Tracy

Thank you so much for posting this. I happened to see this story on a TV in our office last week, out of the corner of my eye. I have scoured the CNN website but couldn't seem to find it. What a great story, congrats to you and your family! My husband and I are just beginning to embark on our journey of IVF with DE. We have so many questions and are just trying to take it all step-by-step, while (trying to) maintaining our patience.

Hey - I have had the pleasure of talking with several folks going through this process (and even got to have lunch with one recently and we got our DE girls together to play SO if you would like to talk at all about all the craziness of this process please don't hesitate to email me at michelleherring at charter dot net. It is a journey that having lots of ears to listen and ideas to bounce off of along the way really helps.

Much Love,
Michelle

I have a need to remain private so am especially grateful to you for being willing to put a face on donor egg conception. I loved the segment and you and your family are beautiful. Thank you so much. I agree it was really well done and I'm shocked because usually the media gets it so wrong.
