For women with medical issues who are always told they’ll likely have trouble getting pregnant, using donor eggs is often an accepted fact of life. For others who struggle for years with infertility, giving up a biological link to their baby may be a heartbreaking journey to acceptance.

But we’ve yet to meet a mom who looks at her donor-conceived child and regrets bringing him or her into the world. The words we consistently hear from these moms are, “This baby is the child I was always meant to have.”
