Attention Non-Bio Moms & Future Non-Bio Moms

February 2, 2009 at 8:28 pm | Posted in We are Family | 1 Comment

A friend of mine is doing her masters thesis in social work. She is looking for participants to take part in an online survey that will take about 30 minutes. Here’s what she has to say:

I would like to ask for your help in finding participants for my Master of Social Work thesis research on anonymous donor preferences of non-genetic mothers. I am excited to have this opportunity to give voice to the experiences of women starting families in this way.

Participants in my research must meet the following criteria:

(a) self identify as a woman partnered with another woman,
(b) neither woman in the partnership has previous children (i.e., through birth, foster-care, adoption, or step-parenting),
(c) participants have selected an anonymous [id release okay] sperm donor in the past 36 months, and
(d) participants are not be the genetic (i.e. egg/ovum) parent.

The research consists of answering an anonymous online survey which takes about 30 minutes. The survey can be found at

I encourage you to forward this information to any friends, family members, and other professional or personal contacts who might be eligible to participate.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about this research.

Thank you in advance for your time.

[Note – if you click through to the survey, you will see her name and contact info – I didn’t want to make the life of a spammer tooooo easy!]
