Multiple Roads Diverged…
Blog written by Site Manager CB
When I first started at Fairfax Cryobank five years ago, I will unabashedly admit that I was not the most adamant supporter of the reproductive technology field. In my youthful splendor, I had no cares, little responsibilities, and could not comprehend the want or need of that most basic of human instinct to have a child. I focused my time on friends, fun, and establishing my career path.
Now, in my 30s, with my work-way paved and the need to go out every weekend dissipated, the slightest urge to perhaps have a child of my own has started seeping in. With gray hairs peeking through and the tiniest of wrinkles making their appearance, I wonder if I’ve made a mistake by not having a child at a more youthful age.
I haven’t found that perfect man and mentally I don’t know if I could be fully responsible for another human being yet. For now, I have the option of freezing my somewhat sprightly eggs through the wonderful methods of cryopreservation. If I never find Mr. Right in the world, and I’m ready for the challenge of child-rearing, I can always choose a sperm donor from a Cryobank. Thank you, Technology, for allowing me the choice to go down any road I choose.
