A message from our egg donor

I have asked Belinda, formerly "Miss D" to comment or be a guest blogger on my blog. This is her first, of hopefully many, posts.

In your July 3 blog you stated you would like to hear something believable in the direction of your worth or value. Allow me to lend you my opinion on the matter.
A woman who can have a baby when she is not "trying" could be construed as some one of value because she can bring new life to the world. That same woman then must choose what to do with this life she has created. (Not to leave the guys out here, but we are talking about women for now) Many women feel an immense amount of love and nurturing instinct. Many do not. So then, apparently, it is an option to keep this child alive until they are capable of doing so themselves, all the while they can feel they are unwanted.
A woman can care for a child that is not biologically her own, and love and nurture that child who will grow up knowing they were loved and wanted. Never knowing it could have gone a different way.
A woman can also feel such a strong drive to nurture and raise a child that she is willing to spend endless money, time, effort and tears so that she has the opportunity to fulfill this instinctual drive.
If I were to name women I knew who were of value, you would be one of them.
And when I say you have value, I feel quite confident in my expertise on the matter, and you should believe me.

Wow, this post left tears in my eyes.

Kami, I admire you. You are going through some hard times and yet you seem so poised and put together (even in the "what if" post). You are a very determined lady who hopefully in the end will get what she wants and deserves.

Now something else you and Belinda have in common: you are both very empathetic and wise.

What a nice guest column. Hope to read more.

Kuddos not only to Belinda but to Kami also. That is an amazing undertaking, and you both deserve a lot of credit for what you are both about to endure!

Followed you over here ... thanks for your comment on my post today.

What a wonderful message from another woman about you! It's nice to know there are others out there within (yet outside of) our community who recognize the value of women who are so dedicated to their quest toward the dream of motherhood. I, for one, admire your dedication.

Wishing you all good things!

Kami, I can't tell you how much I appreciated your recent comment. It is a topic close to my heart, and I will post a bit more on it in the coming weeks.

I love meeting kindred souls...

How are you?
