My wonderful sister

Posted Dec 14 2010 2:49pm
Dear Maria,

Steve and I would like to thank you for offering to donate some of your eggs in order to help us have a baby.  This is one of the most generous and loving things that any has ever offered to do for us and I can’t put into words how much it meant to know that you were willing to go to such lengths to help us.

When we were struggling with infertility and the routes we were taking all seemed to be leading to dead ends, being offered another option was exactly what we needed.  Apart from the fact that it gave us another potential route to starting a family, it was a reminder to us that we have people around us who love and support us.
I’m sorry we fell out so much around the time our family was getting diagnosed.  To be honest, we would have been a very unusual family if there hadn’t been any arguments.  A family crisis like this one, at a time when we were already under pressure (planning two weddings!) was always going to result in emotions bubbling over.  The important thing is that when the shock passes we are still there for each other.
You have demonstrated over and over again that you will always be there for me and I consider myself very lucky to have you as my sister.  Having a sister like you, a brother-in-law like Jonny, and my niece and nephew is part of the reason I would like Dexter to have a sibling.
I love you.
Shona


My sister Maria with DexterDexter was three days old and just out of the hospital.
