How to Explain Your Non-Traditional Family to Your Child

17 Feb 2022

Families come in all shapes and sizes and talking to donor-conceived, surrogate, fostered or adopted children about their origins can be difficult.

If you’re one of the many families who’ve built their family in non-traditional ways, it can be nerve-wracking to know how to talk to children their origin story but there are books to help explain donor-conception, surrogacy, fostering and adoption in a child-friendly way.

Watch this video as FHH Founder, Eloise, speaks with Founder and CEO of Sensitive Matters, Sali Odendaal, about “The Magic of You” customisable storybooks for children.  These beautiful children’s books can be personalised with photos and the text edited to match conversations your unique family has at home.
