[Donation] The end ...?
My participation in my IPs' journey as a donor has officially ended. But has my role as a donor end here? Or does it end when she conceives, or when her baby is born, or when her baby grows up?
I know that my responsibility do not end here. For exmaple, if I were to come down with some kind of illness that has a genetic component, it will be my duty and burden to deliver this news as a donor. If my IPs' child ever wants to know why I donated or wants more information about my family, be it 10, 20, or 30 years later, it would be my honour and pleasure to share with this person.
I am very thankful for this experience: Thankful to the We Are Egg Donors group for sharing their stories, regrets and triumphs; Thankful to my IPs for their wonderful friendship throughout this donation; thankful I come at a time when the technology is established and the medicines well studied.
I hope this isnt the end of the story, even if my part is largely finished. I hope this is only the beginning of a long history of happiness for my IPs family.
