What does it take to be successful?

April 9, 2007 | By:

So . . . here we go, information session (I am forwarding this blog onto a variety of professionals and donors for their feedback).

I want to know from everyone, what do YOU think it takes to make a successful egg donation cycle?  What should you look for in a donor, what should a donor look for in the recipient parent(s), what are warning signs that the match isn’t right, is open egg donation really important and how much openness are people really comfortable with anyway?

Let’s get talking!

I went AWOL

April 9, 2007 | By:

So sorry!  I have been under the weather with walking pneumonia and trying to keep the office going (thank god for Danielle) and then we had my daughter’s first birthday and easter.  YIKES!

I spent today getting the office back to a somewhat organized state.  There was paper all over the place and I couldn’t take it anymore.  I could find important files, but I lists of to-do lists of to-do lists and it was driving me nuts.  So now everything is anally-compulsively filed and I feel much better.  next on the agenda is fung shuing the office!

I did start the office’s baby wall.  Although we’ve helped many people build their families, only a few clients have been generous enough to send pictures (keep ’em coming) or baby announcements and so today I starte to tape them to the outside of the closet door.  It is the coolest thing ever!  If ever I have a down moment, all I need to do is look at that door and know that I am doing exactly what I was put here on earth to do (that and be a mom!).

So, I see I have some comments to respond to . . . now that I am feeling better and more organized I think I can get this blogging thing under my belt.

Also, I am in the process of retaining a designer to make the look and feel of this blog more fun.  It really is beyond my capabilities to make this an attractive and not just information place to talk and think about all topics related to family building so while I focus on getting information out there, someone else will be responsible for fung shuing (sp?) this blog!
