A GREAT WHAT HAPPENED NEXT BOOK, June 25, 2000 
Reviewer: peggy kindler (see more about me) from Pittsburgh, PA 
How did Elizabeth Noble conceive with a sperm donor she knew but without having sex with him? How did her family feel about it? This is an thought provoking book which not only tells Noble's story but has an interesting chapter on donor offspring and their reactions at learning as adults that they have biological fathers who are not the fathers they grew up with. While this is a good book I would also recommend to anyone planning to by this book to also buy Helping the Stork: The Choices and Challenges of Donor Insemination by Vercollone. Vercollone's book helps you discuss DI with your donor offspring so they don't become bitter...which was Noble's experience.

From the Publisher

A courageous and distinguished leader in the maternal and child health field, Elizabeth Noble has written a startling analysis of the practical, legal, and ethical problems infertile couples face in becoming parents through third-party conception. Noble addresses these problems by examining the technological advances that are being made in the field of "assisted conception" and discussing the lessons of adoption reform as well as her own family's experience with donar insemination. She brings a remarkably encouraging and personal quality to this unique book and alerts us to the crucial importance of a complete genetic and family history for any child.

A reviewer, February 12, 2001,
Very Insensitive
Giving this book one star is very generous. If I could have given it less I would have. I bought this book thinking it would be very informative on donor insemination. Instead I found a book that calls any child conceived by DI 'illegetimate' and compares donor insemination to 'adultery.' This is very insensitive to anyone who is going through infertility and considering donor insemination. Needless to say I will be returning this book first thing tomorrow!!
