Christine Alexander, Secretary

I became a mother by using donated eggs. I feel very blessed that this technology, (which sounded very science fiction to me at first), is available. When I was diagnosed at a young age with a chromosomal translocation that caused my ovaries not to develop properly, I was told my only family building option would be adoption. When I was married, my reproductive endocrinologist mentioned the possibility of becoming pregnant with the use of donated eggs. What a miracle to be able to carry a pregnancy and for my husband and I to have our beautiful son. I am passionate about helping other women and their partners with their journey to becoming parents by using donated eggs. This is a difficult and emotional journey. I am so grateful for the support I had and feel strongly that I want to pay that help forward by being a part of an organization that will provide invaluable resources to families on this journey.

She now is a very happy mom to 3 children – 1 biological, and 2 little ones via same egg donor/same surrogate but born a year apart.

Lauri is a former television producer, director and writer and spent countless years producing television she wasn’t always proud of. As co-director of the long-standing and reputable Agency for Surrogacy Solutions, Inc, & Agency for Fertility Solutions, Lauri now ‘produces’ babies… and is proud of every single one! There is nothing more rewarding and ultimately as important as bringing a child into the world who is so very, very wanted.

With her business partner, Kathryn Kaycoff-Manos, Lauri has ventured into another aspect of the fertility world. Their new website,www.GlobalIVF.com, aims to be the go-to site for all information regarding IVF/DE/GS around the world. Knowledge is power and power helps us realize our dreams.

Wendie Wilson, Egg Donation Agency Advisor

In my early 20’s I donated my eggs to an amazing young woman who was in remission from breast cancer. After seeing the opportunity that was given to her by the technological advancement of reproductive medicine, it occurred to me that this was the single most amazing experience of my life to date.

Ever since, I have committed myself to the field of assisted reproduction still going strong nearly a decade later. I graduated from the University of Washington in 1998 w/ a degree in Speech Communication, spending several years doing competitive speech and debate at the national level. I’ve used my public speaking skills at many assisted reproduction evens and symposiums to speak with intended parents and potential donors about family building opportunities.

With the support of several IVF clinics, doctors and staff members that I had become close to throughout the years, I was encouraged to start my own egg donation agency. From this support, Gifted Journeys was born. I plan to continue spreading the word about Egg Donation and the opportunities that are out there for both recipients and donors. Implementing my belief that all loving people who want a chance to start or grow their family, without judgment or bias, and with equal opportunity and support, should have that option.
