We are officially into week 2 of the Bloggers Fertility Conference hosted by Miss.Conception Coach! It looks like we’ll have 3 weeks worth of content to share with you all, which is pretty great if you ask me. I have been enjoying all of the different perspectives of infertility, the different stories that bring us all together, and the great support all of these ladies have been showing each other. I’m so thankful to be a part of it!
Today’s post is brought to you by Chrissy from 31 Chances and she is sharing her experience with donor embryos and actually meeting her donor. This post brought tears to my eyes – it’s so beautiful in every way. Please read it and leave her some love:
When we dream of having our own children, we wonder how our looks and personality will pass down to our baby. Will they have our nose, our eye color or hair color? Will they laugh like us, look like us, smile like us? Maybe she will be my strawberry-blond mini-me bringing on comments from friends saying, “she’s so cute, she looks just like you!” But how does this all change and how do we accept that this type of dream is gone, when the genetics are not ours? How do we decide to move forward with the journey to baby when we can’t have “our” baby? Surprisingly, the decision turned out to be quite simple.
