Although it is never too late, many parents who create their families through sperm or egg donation or adoption often tell their children about their beginnings at early age. Developing a narrative for your child can be extremely valuable to all members of the family and can help children develop a strong sense of self and confidence about their origins.
After you have told your child about his origins, the next step is to help your child learn how to disclose his donor or adoption information to family and friends in a way that takes into account his unique circumstance and personality. This program can be implemented with children as young as five and through adolescence. The TIP TOP program will help your child cope in a world where adoption and gamete donation are still misunderstood concepts.
These ebooks are an introduction to the program. As you implement the program you are educating and encouraging your child to feel good about who he is and positioning yourself as your child’s ally so you can keep the door open for more communication in the future.
The Tip Top Program – Donor Gamete eBook
Just as adoption has become more mainstream in the past fifty years, gamete donation will likely become more common too. For the moment, however, this technology is only addressed occasionally in the mainstream media. Although ovum donation has been in existence since 1984, and sperm donation has been around for more than one hundred years, gamete donation continues to be a mystery to many. Yet, it is a reality for your child.

Tip Top Program – Adoption eBook
The TIP-TOP program helps your child cope with his feelings about being adopted and gives him a roadmap for deciding when and with whom he wants to disclose information. Fortunately, the world is a different place than it was decades ago. So although disclosure issues are no longer stigmatized, they are still a choice over which your child should have control. Preparing your child for those experiences is a valuable gift. It communicates that your love and concern for him overrides any anxiety you have about adoption issues.
