My husband and I had our family through IVF and we have slowly come to the realisation that our family is complete. The issue is we still have 2 frozen embyos left. We always said that we would donate them to science (because without scientific research, our children would not be alive), but my daughter came from a frozen embyo transfer and I can’t stop thinking about that. I think it’s just so amazing that someone who spent their first 6 months in a freezer now has their own individual laugh and quirky habits and I would like to donate our frozen embyos to another couple. It would give the couple a chance at a family and the embryos a chance at life. Unfortunately, my husband can’t get his head around ‘his’ children being out there and being raised by other people. And so we keep paying for the frozen embryos to remain frozen because we are also frozen and can’t really come to a decision.
I know that if we keep putting it off, they won’t be any use to anyone so any advice or words of wisdom would be greatly received by us both at this stage.
