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

• Adding children to a family -making a baby- takes all the same parts needed to make any baby animal.

• Knowledge of science and our bodies is a smart and beautiful thing.

• This complex story is explained in an easy and positive way that children can accept and be proud of.

This book is for couples who understand that their child’s well-being comes from knowing how much they are wanted, who they are, and how they came into this world and into their family. Celebrating the story of your child’s origins through the simple act of reading can reinforce your family’s journey of deep bonding and open communication.

What Professionals Are Saying

banner-appreciation-green-w “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 Embryologistbanner-accolades-green-w"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 Counselorbanner-appreciation-green-w“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” -Kirkus Review  

What Parents Are Saying

"At first I was a bit apprehensive to read this with our 2 year old twins because I didn't know what to expect. They sat in my lap and I read it straight through without leading them in any way. They were the first to comment "that's us, growing inside of you mommy!" I felt so relieved that I was able to present the concept to them in such an easy going way."– Susan Franks, mother of donor conceived twins. "This book supports traditional storytelling with the combination of linear language in the sequential text, and symbolic language in the illustrations. A children’s book like this may at first seem “too advanced” for 3 year olds, but the illustrations have a poetic sweetness that allows the reader to be specific if need be, or as light and minimal as need be. This is a beautifully illustrated and well thought out story for all ages." — John Bjornson, father of sperm donor-twins "You are to be commended for synthesizing a tremendous amount of information and presenting it in a very simplified, clear way for children to understand. Your illustrations, the subtle humor,  facts and cheerful tone of the story, ensures that this book will be well-utilized in our family. . . I feel that your book (and your blog) has given me so much ease and valuable information, presented in a very enjoyable manner. I highly recommend your book and blog to parents who are looking to bring love, comfort and openness to their parenting efforts. — Michelle Richardson, mother of donor conceived child "One of the many things I love about this book, is that it emphasizes from the very beginning, that it takes a strong foundation — a “family of two” to build a family with children. It takes a strong duo, to go through the rigors of IVF, and a strong love to stay open when talking about donor conception. — Fermina Marquez, mother of egg donor-twinsbanner-appreciation-green-w

The How We Became a Family series uses clear, nurturing text and sophisticated yet relatable illustrations to explain how parents had help creating their family and how that made their children all the more wanted and loved.

There are four customized versions. Two versions are for families whose children were conceived with an egg donor, resulting in either a single child, or twins. Two other versions are for families whose children were conceived with a sperm donor, resulting in either a single child, or twins. Each book is a beautiful keepsake with a special page where each child's name and birth information can be inscribed.

The interior pages are printed on uncoated heavyweight paper (like the Dr. Seuss books) for ease of writing in and documenting this personalized information. (This example below is from the twins version page)
