The link to Amazon is here.

The book is an anthology called: And Baby Makes More: Known Donors, Queer Parents, and Our Unexpected Families, Susan Goldberg (Editor), Chloë Brushwood Rose (Editor).

It's not out on Amazon yet, but it's out in stores, at least in Canada. I haven't read it yet, but I read a great review of it which makes me want to soon.

Anyone got any other books on this topic they wanna recommend?

It's already in bookstores, so you might be able to get your local independent bookstore to order it in, if they don't have it. Amazon is just being weird.

Oooh that looks good!

We always joke with our donor about having someone write a book about our journey. But now it's out there -- all the better! I think it's so important to have something concrete out there to quell some of the crazy hysteria that exists around using known donors.

And papa -- I stand by your signature too. Waiting to hear about rising numbers tomorrow. We'll meditate a bit with you in mind tonight (we do a great pregnancy, implantation, etc meditation that's tailored to IVF folk -- I'll have Katie pass along the info to folks when she visits the thread).

be well all,
megin
