Generous Friend

As I've mentioned before, I was sad and pathetic after learning about my FSH results.

Naturally, I called my best friend, K (whom I've known since middle school) to share my bad news. Like always, she was so sweet and said all the right things to comfort me.

This time she went above and beyond friendship. She offered the most generous gift ever, her eggs.

Now, I know this isn't the sort of thing to take lightly. I'm aware that there are a slew of moral, legal, and psychological issues that would need to be considered before dragging her off for a visit with Dr. B.

For those reasons, I'm not even sure I would ever take her up on the offer.

Although...she is the perfect donor, we're the same height, weight, coloring, etc. No one would ever know that I'm not the biological mother if we did go down this road.

Serious issues aside, I can't tell you what a relief it is to have a backup plan. I feel like no matter what happens, she has my back. I can't believe how lucky I am to have such a wonderful friend.

What a wonderful friend indeed. Hopefully you don't have to take her up on her offer, but she's there if you do need her. thanks for sharing.

I have a best friend like that, and
I'm glad to know that you are just as blessed. It's always nice to know who has your back and all.
