The Gift of a Child is an easy-to-read book that gives clear and non-technical information about childlessness caused by male infertility and how this childlessness can be resolved through the use of donor insemination (DI). The book is written in a question-and-answer form and covers the issues raised by those seeking or undergoing DI treatment. It draws on the experience of couples whose own children were conceived by donor insemination and makes the knowledge gained by their experiences available to other childless couples.
The questions answered include: What is DI? How common is DI treatment? How successful is DI? How much does DI cost? What happens at the time of treatment? Who is responsible if the baby is handicapped at birth? Does keeping DI hidden cause any problems? How do family and friends react when told about DI? What rights does the child have concerning knowledge of DI? Will the same donor be used for a second baby? Does the donor have any legal rights concerning the child? How many times is a donor used? What records are kept of treatment?
