Number of pages: 40
How do you tell your child that they were conceived with the help of a donor, and then address curiosity about half siblings and/or the donor?
Wendy Kramer, Co-Founder and Director of the Donor Sibling Registry, makes it easy and fun! A first-of-its-kind book for kids involving half sibling and donor references. Your Family: A Donor Kid's Story is illuminated in fun, easy-to-understand graphics and factual reproductive descriptions. Inclusive of all family types.
The book starts with the parent's desire to have a baby, the use of a donor, and then broaches the topic of half siblings and biological parents/donors. A perfect book for (the millions of) donor-conceived children to learn about how they were conceived and for understanding that being curious about their unknown genetic origins and relatives is natural. These early conversations are integral to creating a happy and healthy donor child and family.
Pages are included at the end of the book for the child to paste images or draw relatives, with interactive text and colorful anecdotes.
