· The pros and cons of disclosure to children of their genetic origin

· What and when to share this information with children if you so choose
· How or whether to share this information with family or friends
· Questions you may have if you have already begun to share this information

You will also have the opportunity to share information and support one another in making the decision about disclosure and find out just how and what to say at what age when you begin to talk with your child and others. Come hear what both professionals and other parents have learned through their own experiences and work with families created through donor conception.
