BamaRicanCouple ,

Thank you

Wish I’d found y’all earlier. The empathy, resources, topics, and space created that offers information and healing have been so incredibly helpful. Just to go on a walk, listen to one of your podcasts, and feel I have permission to just release ALL of the emotions I’ve been holding onto has been a true blessing. Thank you!!!

Donor egg

So great that a few days ago I decided to look into using a donor, found Victoria and others on Instagram then saw you interviewed her for this podcast. So many thank you!!

Jesse and Doug the emotions you expressed about your family’s adoption story I felt after having my child after my first round of fertility treatment. Here I had our son and yeah...holding on too tight, fear of loss again, but also joining your child’s journey (I actually got lost in his story). Thank you for sharing because it was so helpful in my transition to moving on.
