i never imagined i would be writing this letter, that our life would look the way it does. i never imagined a miscarriage. cancer. infertility.
i never imagined you. our donor.
it wasn’t an easy decision. one that took us quite some time to finally make. but, there we were. sitting on the couch with a glass of wine and a beer. searching through a catalog to find..you, our donor.
it was weird. how do you sit and pick from a catalog, someone who looks like your spouse. someone you think is ‘fit’ to be the other half of your children’s genes?
as i sit here, a little over two years later, it comes easy, because you, well you have blessed us beyond any words i could ever write.
how do you thank someone who gave you life? who gave you two lives?
you completed our family. you made us whole. you made a family. filled a void we never even knew we had.
these two little girls? see, they were chosen.
they were made with love.
some day, they will know. we have vowed to never keep who they are, from them. why would we?
you chose hope.
you chose life.
you chose love.
we’ll probably never know you and who knows if you will ever know our sweet girls, but if you do, you would be proud. you would see these beautiful, happy, full of life little girls.
i never imagined writing this letter.
but i could never imagine my life without you.
from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
our sweet babes? they were made with love.
