Id most definatley. I was screened in my 20s. I dont think id have any trouble blessing a family w Child of their own. Even if I donatec the eggs. I have plenty of blessings of my own, and would be honored to "share the wealth".

That is an amazing woman! Pregnancy requires so many sacrifices and it can take a toll on you physically and emotionally. To sacrifice your body for your own child is one thing, but to make that sacrifice over and over again for another couple, that is amazing to me!

I have considered this yes, for my sister. She has infertility problems, and has been trying to conceive for over 5 years. Its been a thought for a while, but after having 3 kids of my own, and all the sacrifices that need to be made, I'm still not sure if I would ever follow through with it. I know how happy it would make her, but at the same time its a lot of work on my behalf, and with the medical conditions I have, I wouldn't want to be pregnant again with my own child. I think about it everyday though :(
