Egg Donation - Not an easy decision

I read this article in Elle (all 6 pages of it) that Jade mentioned and I could really feel the despair conveyed by it. The author, at 43, decides to have a second child with the help of an egg donor. After her long search to find just the right donor, without even knowing herself exactly what that means, she finally finds one.

What was clear to me from the article was that the end was what was right for HER and nothing more. I was missing a little disclaimer in the article, which seemed almost judgemental, saying say something like, "each couple is different and needs to make the choices that are right for them".

That's a wonderful article. Long, but very readable (for those wondering whether to take the effort).
