"The first comprehensive book for children born through donor conception and their families. More than one million people have been born in the U.S. through donor sperm or eggs, including Wendy Kramer's son. Realizing the unique concerns of being or parenting a donor-conceived child, Kramer launched what would become the world's largest database for connecting donor-conceived people, the Donor Sibling Registry (DSR), which receives up to two million hits per month. Finding Our Families provides additional support for this growing community. With compassion and insight, the authors draw on extensive research to address situations families face throughout a donor-conceived child's development, including the search for a biological parent or half-sibling, and how to forge a healthy self-image"-- Provided by publisher.
