Last March we introduced you to Linda and Richard Weeks. They are the couple that spent £2,000 to advertise their plea for an egg donor on London buses.
It was Mrs Weeks’ last chance for fertility treatment, which cannot continue after a woman reaches 55.
After 14 years of trying for a baby, the couple’s prayers were answered last year and they have now welcomed a healthy baby girl.
Almost 100 women responded to the Logan Centre for Assisted Reproduction in London after seeing the bus advert, but only one went through with the egg donation. She was not paid for the procedure.
Baby Katy was delivered by Caesarean section at Maidstone Hospital four weeks ago weighing 5lbs 11ox (2.6kg).
Mrs Weeks, who carried her daughter full term, said she was overwhelmed by the anonymous donor’s gift.
“She is extremely generous and she has given us the gift of life, and has given Katy the gift of life,” Mrs Weeks said.
“Whatever Katy becomes in her life, it is down to three of us.”
Mr Weeks added: “I’m just so proud and so grateful.”
We wish this couple good luck!
