As always, Many thanks for being so thoughtful and caring.
Thanks so much for your response; you gave me a huge smile! It's so comforting to hear your words, and it was exactly what we needed to hear right now. Thanks again for your positive energy, thoughts and prayers and keeping this all in perspective; you have been an invaluable asset to us during this whole process!!!
I felt your empathy and true best interest at heart. I have come to find that these traits are not always easy to find.
I would like to take this time to thank you both for what you do for every family. You have been so patient and helpful every step of the way of this process. The work that you both do will echo in my life forever, and for that I am truly grateful.
You are always in our thoughts at this time of year. (Our little one) is the most amazing child. G-d brought her to us for a reason. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
It is very clear that you love what you do and we are so grateful that you're helping families like ours. THANK YOU!
Judy, You’re my Jewish Angel. Thank you so much. I really feel that you’ve been instrumental in my journey.
I'd just like to say, profoundly, Thank You. You give us hope. I think we will end up performing miracles.
Thank you so much for all your kind words, Judy. You always encourage me and make me feel better.
I just wanted to say thank you for our talk the other day. I’m super inspired by your patience and the manner with which you speak! Thank you so much for being patient and understanding and really wanting things to go well for everyone involved. It is a reminder that this is really a group effort and it’s humbling.
I wanted to let you know that I feel very grateful to have you with me during this process.
Judy, we were so happy that you are helping people from all over the world. We want to tell you what a joy it is to have you as part of our "family."
I am profoundly grateful to our donor and to you Judy, for helping to make this miracle happen.
We are so grateful for the good fortune of finding you, Lynn, and our donor to help us build our family. I can't express things properly in this very emotional time, other than I am very thankful for the fortune that I have been blessed with.
Thank you Judy, for all you've done and all you continue to do for us, and for the others whom you help bring forth light into the world.
I want you to know you were the first person I spoke to about a donor and you helped me "get there". I am forever thankful and think about that conversation often.
Thank you for heading up an organization that is making this possible. I love A Jewish Blessing and want to tell everyone about it. Of course, it's not really the kind of thing I should be sharing with everyone. The beauty of mitzvahs.
Thank you so much for making the time to speak with me tonight--last minute. I feel heartened after our conversation and it has been one of the most positive experiences I've had in this process severely lacking in joy.
I'm so happy. I just can't thank you enough for every bit of your help, guidance and warmth
Thank you so much for all of your care and support. It made such a difference in my strength and mindset moving forward.
We cannot thank you enough for all you have done. You are an amazing person and we are so grateful we found you.
I have never forgotten (our first) conversation...the comfort that you made me feel when I was most in despair. I am forever grateful to you for giving me the confidence to trust my instincts and be a better advocate for my medical treatments, and for your encouragement to believe in the miracles that could be.
I can't put into words how much your help has meant to me.
Thank you so much for being there for us and helping us throughout this complex and exciting journey.
This past year you have been the messengers of hope for us and our future. We are so blessed to continue to have your support with us through the new year.
Thank you for all your help and for all the work that you do to bring the same kind of happiness to other families in need. You gave us the largest amount of nachas and blessings by enabling us to go through the process and supporting us along the way. Judy, you were right...now it all seems like a distant memory.
You should know that the work you do is amazing and truly life altering. Your efforts not only change life but give life and there can be nothing more powerful or rewarding.
Any family is lucky to have you!
I want you to know that I feel lucky that our paths have crossed. You are lovely and caring and it has been truly a pleasure working with you. It is rare to find someone as dedicated to their work and to those she cares for. Todah Judy. Dr. K
Thank you so much for your love and concern and continuous checking in. It really means the world to us.
Thank you for making this process so pleasant and easy...I really appreciate everything you are doing for me.
Dear Judy, I feel blessed to have found you. Talking to you makes this experience feel so much easier. May G-D bless you for your kindness.
Thank you so much for your help and guidance, Judy. It means the world to me.
THOSE are the answers I've needed! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I finally have some understanding and clarity. Thank you for patiently giving me your support.
Dear Judy, I wanted to thank you for your help and for the peace of mind you've brought to me the last six months. I know you understand what a stressful process this is and I just wanted to say that our conversations really helped me to feel more relaxed, that I had options and that there would be alternatives if we need them. I still think of you often and with much gratitude. Thank you, best wishes and blessings to you.
I wanted to thank you for talking with me the other day. I have been thinking about your suggestion...Thank you so much for your insight. YOU are a Jewish blessing.
Judy, you are absolutely amazing. You always know exactly what to say to make me feel better. It's really a huge gift of yours. I'm so happy to have you in my life and always have your support.
We would not be here without your vision and dedication to this purpose. Thank you so very much, Judy!
Judy, I truly have so much to thank you for...YOU were what helped me decide to move forward with donor egg. I look at my daughter and NEVER even think about where she came from...she is MINE.
Thanks so much for giving us your time to listen, share and care about our situation. We are grateful for your open invitation to be in touch when we are ready. In the meantime, thanks again for your kind support and words of wisdom. With gratitude....
Thank you so much for being so understanding. You make this process more "human".
You likely hear this often--that you have been recommended to us as a resource by both esteemed Rabbis and medical practitioners. The high regard in which they hold you is of great comfort to my husband and me, as we pursue this path to parenthood.
Thank you so much for your support and kindness, your blessings and your optimism.
Just wanted to send a note to say hi and a couple of pictures. Our little girl turned 2 1/2 last week if you can believe it!!! There are no words to describe the joy you've helped bring into our lives!
Thank you for everything, Judy . You are a ray of sunshine in the stormy journey.
I am moved to tears when I think how fortunate we were to find you and for you andour donor to do this mitzvah for us. The last 16 months just erases all those years of infertility and loss. Now I know we were just waiting for our little boy and he just took this long to show up.
It was a special gift from Hashem to meet you on our journey. Just being able to talk about all this with someone as empathetic and articulate as yourself felt really good. Blessings to you, and may you be blessed to continue bringing peace, light and clarity to people who are in this process.
It is All of Us that should thank you for creating 'A Jewish Blessing', the light at the end of the tunnel, when we didn't know where else to go. May the Universe continue to assist you in making dreams come true!
The decision to move forward with you has brought only blessings to our life! (Both in terms of choosing egg donation and choosing YOU and your wonderful agency). I consider what you and Lynn are doing to be very holy work.
I'm sitting here looking at this absolutely beautiful baby in my arms, almost in tears because I love her so much. I can't imagine having had her any other way. Egg donation was without question the best decision we ever made. She is mine in every way and I love her just as much as my biological son. If it weren't for the two of you, the two of us would not have this miracle baby! Please know how grateful we are and always will be for what you have made possible for us. It makes me cry to think about it.
Thank you a Million Times Over for all your help when I was so desperate and just didn't know where to turn.
I am not in need of a donor but I was 6 years ago and I am glad that finally there is a place to get a Jewish donor. I looked all over the country for a Jewish donor and could not find one and wanted to tell you that you are greatly appreciated.
It is so wonderful that I have found you and A Jewish Blessing, because you know the right questions to ask of donors that would mean so much to Jewish recipients like us.
I’m absolutely speechless, after reading your email. It feel that I’m talking to an Angel that’s been send to me straight from haven J. Thank you so much for all your care and time… its beyond words.
You are SUCH an angel!!!! I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate your help! Thank you so much!!!!
You really made me feel better about our whole situation and helped to make all of this strangeness feel a little more normal and hopeful.
I was thinking of our past that has gotten us to where we are now and thought of you. You were so kind and supportive as I was going through this 'leg' of my journey and I remember you as being a very special person, working very hard to make special things happen for people. A rare find in the business you are in!
I have to tell you that you are truly awesome! You're colleagues do not have the knowledge or commitment that you have! Not even close! You are in a league of your own regarding excellence of care. Thank you for all that you do for your donors and families! Dr. H
We wanted to take this special moment to thank you for everything you have done for us as parents: the care, the information, the support, the love and most of all the opportunity to have a child. We are very blessed. To tell you this is a life changing experience is sort of an understatement! I am still in awe....even more so due to lack of sleep!!
Thank you again for everything, for your moral support, help, kindness, etc etc. I think you're a very special human being, and while the 613 commandments don't include helping infertile mothers, I think your good deeds have ticked a lot of the 613 boxes...
I have thought about some of the people we met during our search and we are so blessed to have found you-you are doing your customers a real service by being so genuine.
You've been a very important part of this process and of our lives, Judy. My many, many thanks and blessings to you! I feel like YOU are also doing God's work --I'm glad to know you and know you're out there, so keep on keeping on.
Your wisdom and compassion and humor and insight have been a miraculous blessing to us Judy.
We wanted to thank you again not only for assisting with this, but for your kindness and holistic thinking about it. We had our second ultrasound and saw the heart beating and are now starting the eighth week.
We wanted to express how excited we are. And wanted to say how appreciative we are of all your work with us Judy--you've been amazing and we really appreciate it!
We think of you (and our donor) and are so appreciative of what you (and she) made possible.
Your miraculous handiwork continues to blossom into mind-blowing beauty, grace, humor, intelligence and abject joy. They are just spectacular.
We are over the moon excited about our wonderful boys. We got them each in a different way, and we couldn't possibly love each of them more!
We thank God, you and our donor everyday for our son. He is an absolute delight. Great personality, silly as can be, really sharp, tall, gorgeous and most importantly happy. I didn't know that god could create such a wonder!!!
We have worked with Judy for the last 3-4 years as we have had a long history of infertility. She quickly became a close, dear, and caring friend. From the get-go, she always went way beyond the call of duty, making sure that we knew she was always accessible for us no matter what time of day, no matter how silly a question we thought we were asking. She has a wealth of knowledge. We formed a close relationship with her, and always trusted her to give the right advice and to be truthful to us. She will always be a very special person to us, as she has been through some very tough & personal times with us.
