Hi, everyone! My name is Sadie and this is my story. Starting from the beginning. My Mommy and Daddy were having trouble getting pregnant with me due to my Mommy's health. They wanted me so much, they tried IVF and got pregnant with me. Mommy was...

I have two children and had an oversupply of breast milk with both. I decided to donate with my first child because I simply did not want to waste it. However, only after my second child was born, did I truly understand and appreciate the...
