Liz Mandarano is an attorney with an extensive amount of litigation experience. Her primary focus has been matrimonial, family and some trusts & estates. She enjoys working on cutting edge "unconventional" family issues.

Liz is a single heterosexual woman who has a child,( a 21 month old son named Eli), who’s father is an ID consent sperm donor. She was almost 39 when she had him, and based her decision on how difficult it is for a single woman to adopt as well as the time it takes to adopt (on average 56 months, which would have put her way on the outside of fertility if she was unable to find a child to adopt).

Interestingly, the vast majority of people, including those who lean towards a more conservative approach, supported Liz's decision to have a child on her own. It seems the general reaction is that it was better to do it this way than be with the wrong person.

Listen as Liz goes into detail on her mission to support alternative family planning.
