About the Author

Carmen Martinez Jover is an artist, lecturer, author and fertility coach and has dedicated her life to support individuals and couples going through difficulties in having their own family. She has given lectures around the world and written several children's books on egg donation, single mum's by choice, two dads and is constantly working on new projects. Her books are found in many languages and you can now personalise your own book with your own family names. Rosemary Martinez, Carmen's sister, is an international award-winning designer, and did the most amazing illustrations that make this story so much fun to read with your kids.


Lovely book with beautiful illustrations making it really easy to explain sperm donation to children through a simple story. Would recommend definitely. EMP Our daughter loves this book. It's a wonderful way to share our story with her as she grows. SS Adorable drawings will delight your child as this story introduces the complicated concept of in vitro fertilization, and a mother's choice to conceive and raise a child on her own. For very young children, you might choose to skip over some of the more complex terms and just read this book to share a mom's joy of having a child. In the story, the mother tries to find the perfect husband, and the illustrations made me laugh out loud as each one wasn't quite the right match. (I don't want to spoil it, so I won't say much more.) I would think that many new moms don't even know books like this exist, and this book will reassure them that there are simple ways to explain complicated topics. Highly recommend! TT This is a delightful story about a choice to be a single mum, one of the many ways we can become a family. Friends who support this choice prove that genetic connection is not essential to realize our dream of becoming a parent. Regardless of the path we take, it is born of the wish to love and nature a child.Sandra K Dill CEO, Access Australia, Chair, Somy, like many women in the world, had to make a decision between creating an unconventional family or not fulfilling her natural mothering instincts. When a woman wishes "to be a mother" she is choosing the most complicated career. One in which you stop praying for your dreams, and instead pray for a longer life to be able to see your child s dreams come true.Sandra de la Garza, founder, Author of "Cuando tarda la Cig e a"(When the Stork is Delayed) I am a single mother by choice, with two daughters; Alba, was born thanks to assisted reproduction treatment with a sperm donor and, Nabila Moon, was the result of an international adoption. Carmen recounts in her children s stories these different forms of conception, closer to the social reality of families in the 21st century. Thanks Carmen, for contributing to this scarce "other children s literature."Rosa Maestro, founder, Author of "Cloe quiere ser Mama," (Cloe wants to be a Mum)
