Path to Grandparenthood: Parents of Egg and Sperm Donors. Diane Beeson, Patricia
Jennings, Wendy Kramer.

“…third-party reproduction has implications not only for the donor,
recipients, and offspring, but also for the parents of donors, who in increasing
numbers are learning that they are the biological grandparents of one, or
sometimes many, children born outside of their family. In this article we
examine this new path to grandparenthood by reviewing some of the social
processes that have led to the emergence of this phenomenon.”
