Altrui recipients, a couple trying for a baby, thank their donor for the gift of egg donation.

To a very special person

It is hard to put into words the gratitude we feel towards you.

When we were told a few years ago that I had low fertility in my early thirties, it felt like my world had ended and I lost all hope of having the family I had always dreamed of.

Since we found each other, you have filled me with so much hope, happiness and peace, something I thought I would never feel again.

We think you are an amazing woman in every way. Your kindness and generosity has reached out and touched us and made us feel that we would like to be able to extend out to others, the way you have done for us.

We also want to thank your family for supporting you at this time. It means a lot to us that they have been behind you all the way.

I will do all that I can to make this work and please remember above all, that the happiness and peace you have given me over the last few months has all been worthwhile.

We will never forget you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


Also enclosed is a poem my husband felt inspired to write!

Angels do live on earth

Although I have not met you I know you are an Angel,
You do not know me; yet you have reached out and touched me,
I may never see you but you will always be close to me…

The gift that you give is given so selflessly,
The kindness you show does truly inspire me,
As people go you are simply amazing
Angels do live on earth.

A child’s smiles, love and laughter cannot be compared
But thanks to our Angel that can all now be shared
We look to the future with a spring in our step
Angels really do live on earth.

Thank you.
