Becoming Fairy Godmother: Egg Donation and Creating A New Kind of Family

Becoming Fairy Godmother: Egg Donation and Creating A New Kind of Family

By Feelings & Co.

Two years ago Julia Winston was asked to help a gay couple start a family by donating her eggs. At the time, she was 38, single, and had no idea if she’d start her own family. Sometimes that made her feel insecure, so the opportunity to donate her eggs allowed her to help create a family, just not the one she imagined in her head. Since the donation, she’s gone through an emotional transformation that opened her eyes to all the different ways a family can look.
