To build a family, first of all you need love. But how do you talk with your child about their in vitro origins? How do you tell your children they were conceived with the help of a donor?

We are a family that loves physiology and how the body works. Bernard is a physician, Teresa is an artist and a certified Hatha yoga instructor. We want our children to know the correct terms used to describe their body parts from an early age. We want them to be proud of their bodies, to love their bodies, to have a healthy respect and relationship with their bodies and to know how incredibly amazing and intelligent our bodies are.
We are a family of science and art. If we didn't have science, we wouldn't have the deep understanding of the physical world we live in or the family we have today. Science helps us with understanding and interpreting the life around us and art helps us to understand and interpret the life within us.
Gratitude and appreciation is a huge part of our family culture that extends to everything we give and receive in our lives. Our gratitude and appreciation extends to the gamete donors who have helped to build families like ours and all kinds of families. Donors -all kinds of donors- are people who give of themselves to help others live.
With the research and support of our infertility doctors, embryologist, psychologists, counselors, donor specialists, and other parents like us, we decided to write and illustrate the book that we wanted to read with our children.
It is our hope that this book will help other parents, like us, begin the conversation, with ease and comfort by simply reading with their children.
It explains assisted reproduction in spare, restrained language that allows plenty of leeway for parents to deliver their own messages, and it also preserves the beauty and magic of a child s birth.... an elegant explanation that most children will grasp easily. --KirkusReviews.com
Excellent book for both parents and their children who are related to in vitro fertilization process and donor program. This book is not only filled with science, but also love. --Dr. Jun Tao PHD, HCLD Embryologist
These books are beautiful and are a wonderful resource for donor conceived families. Parents and their children will benefit tremendously. --Dr. Madeline Licker Feingold, Ph.D. Psychotherapist and Reproductive Counselor
