I Can’t Wait To Meet You
Having a baby by way of IVF is the end of one arduous journey and the beginning of another, more welcomed one—raising this precious miracle.
In the best interests of the child it is recommended that those who are conceived by this method have a right to full disclosure. Claudia Santorelli-Bates has written a charming book for these children and their parents so that the concept can be introduced when they are very young.
In “I Can’t Wait to Meet You” the wonders of biology and science are simplified. The microscopic becomes large enough for the child to visualize how he or she came to be. And just as important, this book will leave the little ones with a sense of how loved and wanted they are.
“I Can’t Wait To Meet You” is one of those books that parents will be asked to read again and again.
