Mikki Morrissette has been at this a long time.  She coined the term Choice Moms.  As a former journalist, she has a plethora of resources, podcasts and content. I've contributed many articles and was a major contributor in her E-Guide for Egg Donation.

E-Guide to Egg Donation

The first-edition of the 2015 Choice Moms E-Guide: All About Eggs — a 47-page compilation of insights and Q&A on egg freezing, emotions of the donor egg journey, questions to ask before selecting an egg bank, and much more. I contributed much of the content to this guide.

Who's Picking Me Up?

Who’s Picking Me Up, is a wonderful, modern story about families written by fellow Single Mom by Choice, Signe Ford. Rufus the computer needs to know who is picking up each child in the class.  At first, he is confused by the unconventional families, but after an upgrade, he catches up and embraces the myriad of families structures represented in this book. Single moms by choice, same sex, divorced, blended etc—every possible family type is represented in a way that helps children value and understand their own unique family and the families they see around them.  A great book for preschools and daycares to help introduce the concept of family in the broadest possible sense. A delightful book available in English, Danish, Norwegian and Portuguese

Why Single Motherhood Doesn't Mean An End To Dating?

DatingAdvice.com wrote about Motherhood Reimagined in a recent article, covering the ways dating doesn't end just because a woman decides to become a single mother. Here's what they had to say: "Sarah Kowalski was in her early 40s when she found herself without a partner and yearning to experience the joy of raising a child. Determined to make her dream a reality, she embarked on a mission to become a single mom through sperm donation. After the birth of her son, Sarah knew she could help women in similar situations navigate paths to becoming parents, so she started Motherhood Reimagined. Her goal was to guide aspiring single mothers on the steps necessary to have a child in the face of fertility issues, or lack of a partner, and offer emotional support along the way. As an online community, support group, and coaching service rolled into one, MotherhoodReimagined.org celebrates all paths to motherhood while helping women come to the realization that being a parent doesn’t mean the end of their dating lives."
