Thanks to technology and marriage equality, more and more people are looking to become parents. Third-party reproduction has become easier, more accessible, and more successful, yet it is a complex process. Regardless of their gender or marital status, people come to the process with questions like, “How are sperm, eggs, embryos, or surrogates screened?” or “What are the legal issues surrounding surrogacy?” or “How do I find an egg donor?” or “How do I tell my family’s story?” Your Future Family is the definitive handbook to answer these important questions.

This book will fill a void for hopeful parents and their loved ones, answering questions both common and complex that have not been suitably addressed in previous books. Filled with personal anecdotes from author Kim Bergman’s own life, as well as the lives of her clients, it is both informative and reassuring.

Dr. Kim Bergman is a licensed psychologist and one of two owners of Growing Generations, one of the oldest and largest surrogacy and egg donor agencies in the world. She is a well-respected expert on assisted reproduction, serves on the corporate board of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, and is an emeritus board member for the Family Equality Council.
