Talking with Children about Egg & Sperm Donation [Newton, MA Workshop]


Saturday, June 3, 2006 - 10:30am - 12:30pm

Let's Keep the Conversation Going

Parents who build their families through egg or sperm donation are often hesitant about talking with their children.
* How will we introduce the subject of donor conception?
* What should we say?
* When should we say it?
* How will our child/children react?

These are among the questions that you may be asking yourself if you have built -- or are hoping to build -- your family through gamete donation. You may also be wondering about talking with others -- your family, friends, teachers and more.

This 2-hour workshop will help you launch the conversationÐand keep it going. You will leave the program feeling confident, secure and better prepared for conversations with your child. You will meet others who share your experiences, and will learn from experienced professionals.

An on-going support group will be available for workshop participants who would like to continue meeting.

Sat, June 3, 2006. 10:30am - 12:30pm. $65/person

Moderator's Note:

I met Ellen back in Oct. 2005 at a DC Conference in Toronto and she is quite good to listen to and knows her stuff. If anyone is in the Newton MA area I recommend this workshop. A two hour investment of your time on this topic should be a no-brainer. - Eric
