A few weeks ago, I received an email from the clinic notifying me that a couple was expressing interest in my eggs.  However, before the couple made a final decision, they wanted a picture of me in profile, as well as a handwritten statement of at least three sentences explaining why I wanted to become a donor.

Oh, and they wanted it in cursive too.  Lucky for me that my cursive, if I slow down, isn’t half bad.  I did like the “at least three sentences” requirement.  I remember those days back in third grade when some busywork assignment would require a paragraph of at least three sentences and everyone would groan aloud.  Asking for three complete sentences was an outrage!  How can anyone write that much on a single subject?

Anyway, after an impromptu photo shoot á grace de ma soeur, I sent in this profile pic:

The horns are a recessive trait, I promise.

Just kidding.  I’m afraid posting the actual picture might be too identifying.  Just trust that it looked great and my nose was very well lit.

And then this was my handwritten statement:

Yeah, I like playing with my graphics tablet.

Yeah, I like playing with my graphics tablet.

Notice how I slip in the cursive at the end there?

Seriously, I had no idea what to write.  I thought for sure they knew enough about me from the 600 question personality test I’d already filled out.

So I submitted both documents, but I didn’t hear back about the final decision until today.  And they picked me! WOO!  I knew I’d win them over with the 2-fer-1 sale.
Look for more posts as things unfold!
