Product Description
TICK TOCK GOES THE BIOLOGICAL CLOCK When Cheryl's biological clock goes from a gentle tick-tock to a grandfather-clock BONG, BONG, she decides it's time to take action. This lighthearted tale is the true story of a single, straight woman who wants to have a baby but is tired of waiting for Mr. Right. When she decides to use an anonymous sperm donor, the result is a sometimes harrowing, sometimes hilarious journey as Cheryl raises her son by herself. When they stumble upon a way to locate the "anonymous" donor and some of her son's half-siblings, it results in a brand new 21st century family, rich with possibilities.This book gives the reader a personal peek into the process of donor insemination, and not just from Cheryl's point of view. Her son and one of his siblings share their own observations. A chapter from the donor's perspective takes you behind the closed doors of a sperm bank and answers the question, "Why would a guy want to donate sperm?" Sperm Donor = Dad will tickle your funny bone and touch your heart.
