Speaker Bio

Julie Marie

Julie Marie is the author of the Happy Together Children’s Book Series, a collection of six heartwarming books to help introduce young children to the family building concepts of egg donation, embryo donation, sperm donation and IVF. 

After being diagnosed with infertility and becoming a mother through the gift of donor assisted reproduction, she found various paths to parenthood were underrepresented in children’s literature. She wrote Happy Together to help parents share the special family building story with their child. 

It’s her hope Happy Together will provide a heartwarming book for parents to read with their child sharing just how much they were wished for and loved!
