Dedication to Narelle Grech
The Donor Conception: Towards Openness exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Narelle Grech, a donor-conceived woman, who fought courageously for the right to learn the truth of her genetic heritage. Narelle met her donor, Ray, less than two months before passing away on 26 March, 2013.
'From the moment I met Rel, I knew that I loved her completely and unconditionally. It was as if some magic switch in my heart was activated.....I felt that pure, beautiful love that every caring parent experiences when they first set eyes on their child. We didn't use the “love" word when we first met, but Rel admitted later that she felt the same way. My love for her grows and grows and the more I find out about her amazing life and all she achieved, the prouder I am of her.' – Ray Tonna, Donor
