    How We Became a Family: Version Sperm Donor - Singleton~ 

        To build a family, first of all you need love. But how do you talk with your child about their in vitro origins? How do you tell your child they were conceived with the help of a donor?
       Adding children to a family -making a baby- takes all the same parts needed to make any baby animal.

    Knowledge of science and our bodies is a smart and beautiful thing.

        This complex story is explained in an easy and positive way that children can accept and be proud of.

    This book is for couples who understand that their child's well-being comes from knowing how much they are wanted, who they are, and how they came into this world and into their family. Celebrating the story of your child's origins through the simple act of reading can reinforce your family's journey of deep bonding and open communication.

    What Parts Make Up The Female Anatomy? Ms Sherri's Truth4Youth Saturday@2:30pst

    in Radio

    The female reproductive system is designed to carry out several functions. It produces the female egg cells necessary for reproduction, called the ova or oocytes. The system is designed to transport the ova to the site of fertilization. Conception, the fertilization of an egg by a sperm, normally occurs in the fallopian tubes. The next step for the fertilized egg is to implant into the walls of the uterus, beginning the initial stages of pregnancy. If fertilization and/or implantation does not take place, the system is designed to menstruate (the monthly shedding of the uterine lining). In addition, the female reproductive system produces female sex hormones that maintain the reproductive cycle.

What does a review of the latest research show? Host Dawn Davenport will interview Dr. Seetha Shankaran, Professor of Pediatrics and Director of Neonatal Perinatal Medicine at Wayne State University School of Medicine, and author of comprehensive analysis of the literature on childhood and young adult outcome following assisted reproductive therapies.

    HortiNova's Sjoerd Smits on Plant Sap Analysis Technology

    in Science

    John Kempf interviews Sjoerd Smits on Plant Sap Analysis Technology. Sjoerd is co-owner and consultant at HortiNova Group in the Netherlands. 

    HortiNova provides crop consultancy service for growers. They specialize in keeping crops healthy through optimal fertilization and soil / substrate conditions, with a minimum input of chemical pesticides and fertilizer. 

    Plant sap analyses are used to “read” the crop nutritional deficiencies or excesses very early when the crop doesn’t visually show signs yet. Correcting these deficiencies or excesses will increase plant health. Sjoerd, through HortiNova, closely works together with Nova Crop Control who performs these analyses in the Netherlands.

    Crop Health Laboratories is now facilitating sap analysis services in the United States.

    Listen to John and Sjoerd discuss the many benefits of sap analysis and how it compares to tissue analysis.

    Awe of Life Part Four

    in Spirituality

    Part Four of Awe of Life
    I would like to just touch on two more important moral matters pertaining to the sanctity of life:
    Invitro Fertilization
    And Embryonic stem cell research
    We have to first reiterate what I presented in greater detail in  previous episode.
    That the gift and power of our sexuality is ordered toward marriage between one man and one woman and each marital sexual act must include both the element of unity, oneness, and pleasure… along with the potential life-giving side of the act. Should we accept one benefit and power of this awesome gift from God, while rejecting the other?
