Summary
"The ready availability of donated sperm and eggs has made possible an entirely new form of family. Children of the same donor and their families, with the help of the internet, can now locate each other and make contact. Sometimes this network of families form meaningful connections that blossom into longstanding groups and close friendships. This book is about the unprecedented families that have grown up at the intersection of new reproductive technologies, social media, and the human desire for belonging." -- Front flap
