 I can't even begin to thank you for being so selfless. I always wanted to have children. I always thought I would be a good mom, but as my life played out the opportunity never presented itself. After some difficult times, I decided that I wanted to have a family and I would make it work one way or another. This is where my journey began to find the perfect donor. You had everything I wanted: a great health record, the hair and eye colouring I was looking for, and you are very intelligent. In a few short months I was pregnant.

I always thought I would be a good mom, but as my life played out the opportunity never presented itself.

It’s been a little over a year since I have had my son. He is the greatest gift of my life and truly a blessing. He is a handsome, sweet, intelligent boy. I watch him do things or go through different stages and I say to myself "I wonder if he gets that from his donor."

I hope he will understand the decisions and choices I have made. As soon as he is old enough to understand I will tell him all about you and what a wonderful person you are and what a wonderful thing you did for us. I now have the family that I wanted and it’s all because of you.

Samantha*
