The Agency for Superdonors
The Egg Donor Program was founded in 1991 by Shelley Smith, a licensed Marriage Family Therapist who is herself a mother of twins conceived through ovum donation. We are personally committed to your needs with an experienced and caring staff. From your initial consultation to ovum retrieval and beyond, we are here to answer your questions, offer solutions, and would consider it an honor to help facilitate your dreams of creating a family.
“The Measure of your life is what you’ve done for others.”
Helping people expand their families is more than a job to me, it is my calling. My work is infused with personal connections, from the loss of my son, which motivated me to begin my program, to my six years of infertility treatments, to my wonderful resolution with the birth of my twins through ovum donation. There is not a moment in my many years of facilitating when I haven’t felt privileged to be able to help people at such a defining moment in their lives. Choosing a donor is one of the most important and deeply emotional experiences one can face. My superior staff and I understand the nuances, stresses, and blessings people experience at this pivotal time. As I look back at the faces of the lovely couples we have helped, the darling babies who have been born, and finally the tremendous women who have given such gifts, I know that I have spent my career in the company of angels and witnessed miracles of science and the human heart. I have a master’s degree in psychology and am licensed as a Marriage Family Therapist in California since 1993. In my former careers I was a model and an actress.
