What 3rd Party Reproduction Can Learn from Adoption




Adoption and third party reproduction, such as donor egg, sperm or embryos, have much in common.  Both create families in which the child is not genetically related to one or both parents. Adoptive families and professionals have walked this road before and have learned some hard lessons that could apply to the third party reproduction community. Our guests to talk about these issues is Adam Pertman, Executive Director of The Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute, which recently published a study titled “Old Lessons for a New World: Applying Adoption Research and Experience to Assisted Reproductive Technology”; and Marna Gatlin, founder and director of the nonprofit Parents Via Egg Donation.
