Hi Tami! Our Angels arrived on the 4th of June with a 2 minute difference. We are so delighted that they are here and enjoying every moment with them. Everything went so well and we are just so blessed. Our son looks so much like papa it’s just quite amazing and our baby girl has a lot of mama’s features. They have the most beautiful eyes and they have already brought so much joy to the family. I thank God for what you have all done for us and truly feel so blessed to have finally meet these precious souls. Gift ov life parents 2011
Dear Tami and girls, I just wanted to write and thank you both for all your support over the past few months. When we first looked at egg donation, I must admit we were a bit cynical. Hearing stories from our friends about unscrupulous agencies on the other side of the world did not help rid us of our fears. This was however to be our last (and as you know…successful!) try at starting a family! Once we finally settled on South Africa, we looked at the websites of many egg donor agencies. Gift ov life immediately lept out at us. There was a sense of professionalism and care that was not found on the other websites and it was that that prompted me to make first contact. I was so surprised to receive a personal message from the founder within hours! The care and support you offered us made us feel at home. I am looking forward to the morning sickness and will certainly stay in touch. Parents Australia 2009
