Invitation: Donor Gametes, the Next Generation: Caring for Our Children

I just received this invitation from The American Fertility Association. If you are one of the first 15 to register you’ll be in luck and can get personal support and have your questions answered regarding the use of donor eggs, sperm or embryos. If you are already parenting children conceived via these methods you may also participate.
