"They successfully address the many complex components involved in this process, such as choosing a reproductive clinic, choosing a donor, ethical considerations for assisted reproductive technology (ART), compensation, and more. They are sensitive to the struggles of families who face infertility, and dedicate an entire chapter to non-traditional families such as single women and gay, lesbian, and transgendered families. They provide excellent resource lists, and 'Key Chapter Highlights' conclude each chapter. Woven throughout the text are the latest scientific statistics and studies related to ART, and the helpful appendixes address key issues, such as sample surrogate questions, considerations for genetic testing, and a complete glossary and index. This title is a commendable roadmap for this challenging process and is highly recommended as a valuable resource for libraries."-Library Journal, November 2012 (20130122) --Library Journal
About the Author
Wendie Wilson-Miller is a ten-year veteran of the egg donation and assisted reproductive technology field, is the Founder and President of Gifted Journeys, an egg donor agency based in Studio City, California. Before founding Gifted Journeys, she served as the Cycle Director of The Egg Donor Program, the largest donor agency in the United States. During her eight-year tenure with The Egg Donor Program, Wendie forged relationships with many of the nation's leading reproductive endocrinologists and the other specialists who work together to join egg donors with recipient parents. Over the years, she developed a passion for all types of families who sought out egg donors. Single parents, traditional heterosexual couples, gay and interracial couples, transgendered recipients and even those couples who travel from overseas to the U.S. for the accessibility of the assisted reproductive culture - they all deserve to have an advocate. A five-time egg donor, she's no stranger to the hormonal, physical and emotional ups and downs of assisted reproduction. With her final donation cycle resulting in a dangerous episode of ovarian torsion, she knows first-hand the risks borne by both sides of the egg donation equation. Wendie currently serves on the board for Parents Via Egg Donation, the nation's fastest growing support group for recipient parents, and is a contributing author for their resource library. Wendie has also been featured on NPR, The New York Times, ABC News.
Co-Author and multi-cycle egg donor is Erika Napoletano. Introduced to the concept of egg donation in 2000 through a co-worker who had been a donor for her best friend, she began researching the process and became a rostered donor for a prominent Los Angeles-based egg donor and surrogacy agency. Her donations have given several families the enduring gift of eleven children among them and her life is continually blessed with one family's open inclusion of her in their now four-year-old daughter's life. A professional writer, Erika is a prominent consultant and outspoken presence in the digital marketing realm. In June of 2011, Entrepreneur Magazine will launch her column "All Up in Your Business" in their largest issue of the year. She was recently mentioned in the New York Times as an authority in the small business space. She's also a regular contributor to Copyblogger (one of the most widely read online marketing blogs). She was a 2009 finalist for the Denver Business Journal Outstanding Women in Business Award and has been a keynote speaker at Chicks Who Click 2010 social media conference as well as SOBCon Colorado 2010.

Typically when I read a book on egg donation (there are not many) I leave not satisfied or frustrated. I want information that is up to date, not offensive, not dry, and something a lay person can understand.
I can finally refer all of my intended parents to the Insider's Guide to Egg Donation by Wendie Wilson-Miller and Erika Napolentano. This book is clear. It's concise. It's unbiased. There are hints, suggestions, checklists, and they even highlight segments that allow you the reader to go back over those parts that are most important to you for each section.
What I love the most about any book are the real life stories, letters, and comments that are shared throughout any book and this book has them all!
Aside from this being a warm book, it's accurate, up to date, and not overly complicated. It's simple, to the point, and really if this is the only book you find to read on egg donation this is the book for you as I guarantee you will walk away from this book and understand the egg donation process from A to Z.
The nerdy part of me has to mention that the appendix and the glossary are amazing features. I have mine on my Ipad and refer to it regularly in my daily job talking to thousands of intended parents yearly who are just embarking on egg donation.
This book is a fantastic guide and I think will help support many many intended parents and parents for many years!
Great work ladies - you have so much to be proud of. What an fabulous contribution to the world of third party reproduction!
We at Parents Via Egg Donation are extremely happy and proud of the work you have accomplished.
