Genetic Strangers, Sperm Donor Siblings, and the Creation of New Kin

Rosanna Hertz and Margaret K. Nelson

  • Includes over 350 interviews from donors and both parents and children in the same families
  • Sheds light on critical processes like choosing a donor among parents and the development of identity among children with an unknown donor
  • Chronicles the choices couples and single moms make, from conceiving, to accepting donors into their families, to discovering that other children share their child's DNA
  • Explores how children at different ages understand their relationships with their donor and donor siblings
  • Describes what happens when people are brought together by shared genes, what they say about family resemblances, and how they work through the ways donor siblings become kin
