Dr David Adamson“Infertility is one of the most challenging and confusing life situations ever faced by an individual. Much of the public understanding and information available is anxiety-provoking and misleading. Fortunately, Creating a Family is a wonderful and highly successful source of unbiased and accurate information for those suffering from infertility. Their high quality radio show, articles/blogs, videos, factsheets and large support group have helped thousands and thousands of people, including my patients.”   – Dr. G. David Adamson


Dr Michael Tucker“I’m a firm believer in Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support nonprofit, because they are able to take complex issues related to infertility and make them easily accessible to both those just beginning as well as those who have been in treatment for a while. Their resources cross the spectrum of media that such people are actually using (web, radio, support group, video, factsheets, etc.). Creating a Family has constantly evolved to stay abreast of the ever changing landscape of assisted reproductive technology. A wonderful resource.” – Dr. Michael Tucker
