Wondering if any parents or parents-to-be have sorted out how (or if) they will talk to their child(ren) about using donor egg(s)?
My inclination is to be open about it from early on but I am having a hard time finding any current literature (and specifically child-appropriate books) for some guidance on how, when, and how much to discuss (so that it's age appropriate). Any ideas, thoughts, or experience with this??? Any leads on any books/literature or other materials?
I have a list the psychologist gave us- let me see if i can find it! We are going to tell the girls- we have only told some family members- only bc we want to be the ones to tell our story- I am afraid it might 'slip' by accident and not come from us. We are not going to treat it like a secret to our girls. I am swamped but I will try to find this soon.
Thanks gals! My therapist gave me a bunch of suggestions too, but then when I tried to actually order some of the books, I couldn't really find them. I'll check out the link and, Globetrot, let me know if you do find your info.
