NASHVILLE — Janet Schreibman read "Goodnight Moon" and "Curious George" and all the usual children's books to her daughter, a thoughtful little girl who always wanted another story.
So her mother told her one, a small, simple piece at a time, about the child's unusual conception.
Sometimes mommies and daddies need help if they want to have a baby, Schreibman would say. Children are created in all different ways. One way is called in vitro fertilization.
Brittan Gilmore was about 7 when she put it all together, confronting her mother anxiously instead of climbing into bed. "Are you my real mom?" she asked.comments powered by Disqus
