    This gal is so cool. You'll wish she could be your donor. No, really.

That is, scintillating, actually. I've wondered how the shared donor situation actually works in real life. (Um, and my clinic does have a lot of Jewish donors, btw. Ms DonorFantastica isn't, but one of our other donor possibilities was, & my clinic tests for Tays-sachs (sp?) & other Ashkenazian gene issues as a routine matter-of-course.) email me off blog if you actually do want my clinic info - I (obviously) couldn't be happier with them.

Wow, this is exciting stuff. I'm going to have to go back and see if you posted about why/how you chose this particular donor and what makes her so great, but regardless, I think it's about time that you got what you want.

I wonder whether a child born to a Jewish woman from a non-Jewish donor is technically considered Jewish according to Halacha. My guess is yes, but I think that picking a Jewish donor is a really good idea, regardless.

Wow, what a maze to navigate. It is fascinating.

You go girl - you keep advocating for yourself!

Oh wow! I had no idea of the ins and outs of DE or cycle sharing. A whole new level of "stuff" to weed through I guess. Sounds like you've got a good handle on it though. I so hope this is the path that gets you to your family.

Good luck and take care!

Good luck! Hope a perfect donor comes through soon.

I'm wishing that this works out smoothly for you. btw, I consulted a couple rabbis about de and they said that the one that carries the child determines the religion of the child. Not sure if that makes a difference to you, but I thought I'd share.

whatever you need, know that I am here, even if I haven't been so diligent of late.

Timing is everything. Am I reading this right that we're talking a fifth donation for this super donor if you get her next? She sounds like the fun toy on the playground that everyone wants a piece of.

{Also, sorry for the serialized comments...I'm catching up in order!}
