VARTA has excellent resources on how to tell children their ART conception and birth story, or information about talking to kids about surrogacy and related issues.

Books for Donor Offspring

A good reference site for lots of books to help you tell your kids their story:

Two great books written by Australian Surrogates about their journey, which I highly recommend for Intended Parents and Surrogates.

  • Someone Else’s Child – A Surrogate’s Story. by Sue Phillips.
  • A Labour of Love – A story of generosity, hope and surrogacy by Shannon Garner
