About the Author
Jennifer Merrill Thompson is a freelance writer-editor, a former newspaper journalist and a mother of three. Living in Northern Virginia, the home of MicroSort, a center for sperm sorting technology, she turned to high-tech methods to conceive a daughter after two sons. Being the natural researcher that she is--after working at several daily newspapers--she learned everything she could about gender selection. After first trying at-home methods, she next focused on the MicroSort technology, and she finally welcomed her daughter in 2002. After her experiences, she decided to start writing about sex selection and to let others know that they, too, can chase their gender dream. Reaching her goal of a "balanced" family, she shares her story with others.
