Editorial Reviews:
Parenting After Infertility

Parents who have wondered about the long term impact of infertility on their self image will find the answers in this insightful book.
--Lois Melina, author of Raising Adopted Children and Making Sense of Adoption

Finally, here's a book that's sensitive and responsive to the unique emotional experience of parenting after a long, ardous course of infertility diagnosis and treatment. The Long-Awaited Stork gives you all the information, advice, and support you need to adjust to and cope with the special problems of parenting after infertility. Review
You've suffered through infertility, years of assisted reproductive technologies, adoption hassles and heartbreak, and now, finally, you've got your child. The infertility is "over" you are a parent! It seems like life should be a bowl full of cherries. But infertility struggles often leave an emotional scar--even when the outcome has been successful--and parents who have tackled this problem have a unique set of issues and dilemmas.

What (and when) do you tell your child about their birth? Who else do you tell? What about those remaining feelings of loss or inadequacy? What kinds of problems do you face raising both biological and adopted children? In the revised edition of The Long Awaited Stork, infertility specialist Ellen Sarasohn Glazer gives information, advice, and reassurance for adoptive parents; sperm donor, egg donor, and in vitro fertilization parents; parents who have used surrogates; parents of special-needs kids; and parents raising more than one child, each born through different methods. An extensive appendix of resource organizations and recommended reads rounds out this helpful guide for parents with a distinct set of questions. --Ericka Lutz
