Wendy and Jared Kennedy find it hard to take their eyes off their new daughter, Avery Lee, born in the early morning hours of December 31, 2005, at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center. Avery is special to them for many reasons, but she's also special to the world. The 8 pound, 2 ounce baby girl is apparently the first baby born after being conceived with a frozen donor egg from a commercial egg bank.

Wendy, a nurse at the UK Markey Cancer Center, and Jared found they were unable to conceive on their own. Lab tests revealed that they would need to use a donor egg. The couple learned about a new technology in which women's eggs can be frozen and stored in much the same way as donor sperm, which has been available for infertile couples for decades

Really great news for many couples and women I think.
