“Twiblings” and talking about fertility treatments

The blogosphere is all abuzz about a recent NY Times article by Melanie Thernstrom, a woman who used egg donation and surrogacy to have her two children “twiblings”.  She very openly discusses their journey to parenthood and their choices for building their family.  Then in a follow up article, she beautifully addresses some of the criticism and questions that came in comments to the original article.

Even though this has nothing to do with IVF abroad, it struck me as a wonderful article talking openly about the various aspects of third party reproduction.  As a patient, I often found myself at a loss feeling that I had to defend or explain my choices, and I love how she has communicated this in such a balanced and fair manner.
