I am an intended parent too, actually. I joined this site for that purpose but while searching for egg donors I realized the process that one has to go through to have a child, and then it hit me that maybe doing it for other [deserving] couples can be a good thing. I've spoken to many egg donors and most of them did not pass my standards -- maybe they did but they just turned me off as the majority of them do it for the money -- so I decided to give this a shot and see if I can be of help to other intended parents.
We are not celebrity material but I'd like to believe that my family's genetic physical appearance is gifted.We don't attract pimples easily, our built has always been average, and we can all eat sweets and unhealthy food throughout the year but would not look overweight. Our stomach might bulge a little but our limbs will always stay slim. Our clan sport a light skin if that's what matters to you. I may look Chinito but am pure Filipino.
My heart often times side with the underdog, abused, and helpless. I am one of those people who treat their pets like their child. My dogs sleep with me on my bed, fly with me wherever I travel, and never experienced being tied or caged (except when traveling). While I easily shed tears when watching heartbreaking scenes related to family I am immediately angered when I see clips of animals being abused. I embrace the Filipino culture of taking care of your parents as a sign of giving back, but I take it a notch higher by taking care of our entire clan to the best of my ability. I give my barber P5OO in tip each time I see him, I make sure I always leave 1O% in tips at restaurants I go to and not just a few tens of pesos, and I also hand underprivileged people and parking attendants decent cash when I run into them. I see that as my little way of giving back as I know those people work hard but are not getting compensated properly. I feel for them, basically.
I don't drink, smoke, take drugs, or have any tattoos on my body. I've played many kinds of sports when I was little and have won medals for darts, table tennis, track and field, and volleyball. Tennis ultimately became my main sport and I was a varsity player for San Beda during high school. When I grew to the age of reason I decided to let go of sports and the wants of life and started seriously tackling the needs of life. I am very responsible and you probably won't meet anyone else who works as hard as I do. My common sense is very high and can process any situation sensibly. It is very difficult to fool me as I can easily see through a person.
On my father side my grandmother died of old age at 95 and my grandfather I believe died of prostate cancer at the age of 85, which is typical as 80% of men over 80 develop cancer cells on their prostate. On my mother side my grandfather died of old age too, although I don't know how old, and my grandmother is past 80 and still alive. Parents (62 and 60) are still alive and aren't taking any maintenance medication yet. No history of diabetes in the family either. All siblings of my mother and father are still alive (mostly senior citizens now). All my siblings and cousins are still alive and healthy as well.
And now the cons: I have a bad temper just like my grandfather. Traffic and slow, stupid people irritates me. My dad too had a bad temper but he was wise enough to manage and control that to the point that he counsels me now about my temper. A couple members of my clan went through depression at one time so maybe it's also in the genes. I personally haven't experienced it.Everyone in the family is also wearing eyeglasses so don't expect my sperm to put your child to the military coz' he/she won't have a 20/20 vision to qualify.
I don't have a college degree. I was living on my own trying to live an independent life at the early age of 18 so college was not an option back then but rather survival. If I was to go back 20 years ago, however, I would still skip college and do the same exact thing I did with my life thus far. I fall under the street smart category and not simply being book smart; I'd like to classify myself as a wise person and not a smart person. Being inferior in paper drove me to compete smarter and wiser against the privileged. People with college degrees don't impress me, but they have my respect.
I don't have a lot of facial and body hair (that's a negative to many people so I am including that as a con). I always look serious, I can appear a snob, and I have been told many times to be intimidating. I've cheated on my past relationships, been through fist fights during elementary and high school to the point that I was kicked out of school for my bad attitude, and have been through one failed marriage already.
Finally, my family is very, very religious but I am an Atheist. All I simply go by and believe in is to be a good person to do good to other human beings, period. I don't and will never understand why that is an issue to many people.I would rather die in hell for not worshiping any God than to live my entire life thinking that people who don't believe in God will die in hell.
It takes some guts to want to raise a child as a single parent or to raise one that is not biologically your own. However, wanting to raise one does not mean you are deserving to be a parent.Are you financially, mentally, physically, and emotionally ready? Are you a 1OO% REALLY ready to be a parent?
If your answer is Yes then maybe you're not ready yet. Hence, if your answer is No or you're not sure then I think you're on the right path as I believe that no experience in this world will make you a hundred percent ready to raise a child.I've been told that, I didn't believe it, and then I realized I was wrong when I became a first time parent myself. This website is a good medium for intended parents to accomplish their goal. However, some may be more deserving than others and some probably shouldn't even he here. Thus, if you are humble enough to understand that you are not ready to be a parent then you have my respect and I'll be willing to speak with you if you choose to reach out to me. Please understand, however, that just as how you will meet and screen me before deciding if I am a suitable person to help you with your goal, I too will interview you and decide if I am willing to be a donor to you.
With all that said, feel free to send me a message here or at medyo at ymail that com if you think that I may be able to help you with your goal.
