About the Hope & Will Collection
Ordinarily, most people don't think twice about how to build a family. Having biological children is presumed to be the way it's going to happen. For most, it turns out this way. But for some, it doesn't. It is at this stage that parents begin the journey to explore additional options, and this journey is not always easy.
Given the many ways to build a family, these books provide a delightfully new and refreshing way to tell children about their unique beginnings. Written by mental health and reproductive specialist Irene Celcer, and boldly portrayed by internationally recognized illustrator Horacio Gatto, each stand-alone volume recounts the same story from a different perspective, highlighting six distinct pathways to conception: egg donation, embryo donation, sperm donation, surrogacy, adoption, and traditional conception. Each book in this collection provides a great vehicle for parents to tell children how they came into this world.
Available separately, the other books in the Hope & Will collection are The Gift of Egg Donation, The Gift of Embryo Donation, The Gift of Sperm Donation, The Gift of Surrogacy, and The Gift.
From the Publisher
We live in a world where telling our children about their origins seems to emphasize biology or technology at the expense of the emotional climate that surrounds a family's beginnings. It is important for children to know the love, excitement and enthusiasm that parents feel when children became part of their family. These emotions, sometimes joyous, sometimes challenging, are acknowledged in the Hope & Will Have a Baby collection of books in an appropriate way for little ears to hear and little minds to learn about.
Relating the tale of how a child came to be is sometimes fraught with awkwardness and embarrassment. This is true whether the story entails adoption, third party reproductive assistance, or even traditional conception. Many parents struggle to decide if, when or how to tell their children about their family's beginnings.
This book collection can give parents a way to manage a task that may at first seem too overwhelming or stressful. It is meant to provide a way to talk about their desires to become parents and their ultimate success in doing so. It also is meant to give children an appropriate way to start understanding how they entered their family. Parents may choose to embellish, remove or add details of their own special family beginnings as they read to their children. And children will naturally do their own thing, with their own uncanny sense of innocence and delight. Ultimately, it is the family's traditions, culture, and religious beliefs that will dictate the degree of disclosure.
These books are here to help parents tell their children the loving story of their beginnings and the goodness and joyous celebration of their arrival. They accent the caring way that they were planned and how much they were wanted. The collection as a whole celebrates the diversity of ways that families can be created.
