More About Finding Our Families by Wendy Kramer; Naomi Cahn
 
 
 
Overview
The first comprehensive book that offers invaluable step-by-step advice for families with donor-conceived children.

Wendy Kramer, founder and director of the Donor Sibling Registry, and Naomi Cahn, family and reproductive law professor, have compiled a comprehensive and thorough guide for the growing community of families with donor-conceived children. Kramer and Cahn believe that all donor-conceived children's desire to know their genetic family must be honored, and in Finding Our Families, they offer advice on how to foster healthy relationships within immediate families and their larger donor family networks based on openness and acceptance.
With honesty and compassion, the authors offer thoughtful strategies and inspirational stories to help parents answer their own, and their children's, questions and concerns that will surely arise, including:

  • How to support your children's curiosity and desire to know about their ancestry and genetic and medical background.
  • How to help children integrate their birth story into a healthy self-image.
  • How to help your children search for their donor or half siblings if and when they express interest in doing so.
Finding Our Families opens up the lives of donor-conceived people who may be coping with uncertainty, thriving despite it, and finding novel ways to connect in this uncharted territory as they navigate the challenges and rewards of the world of donor conception.
