Donors helped her dream come true
18/3/2015

Occupational therapist Suzy Heeks always dreamed of having children but as she approached 40 and was in a relationship with a man who did not share the same dream, she realised she would need to go it alone.

Ms Heeks used an Australian sperm donor and went through IVF to have her daughter, Abigail, 5. But she wanted Abigail to have siblings. After many devastating rounds of IVF, Ms Heeks was told that she had a very slim chance of falling pregnant with her own eggs, so she decided to travel to Greece and use donor eggs from the Athens clinic Embryoland. At 44, she fell pregnant with twins Holly and Lachlan, who were born on Christmas Eve last year.

''I wanted it to be anonymous, I didn't want to be living down the road from my donor,'' she said, adding the ''reasonable costs'' of Greece also appealed to her.

Ms Heeks, who has recently relocated from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast to be closer to her family, said she expected her children to ask some tough questions in the future, but she intends to be completely honest.

''There are some times of the year that are a bit tough, like Father's Day, but I just tell my daughter that I love her and she might one day have a daddy,'' said Ms Heeks. ''And I will always just tell them I am their mum, because I am.''
