[United States] : Paper Plane Press, 2017. ©2017. 
16 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm. 
ISBN: 9780692816158; 0692816151 
Summary: Bun in the Oven: Special Delivery shares the unique story of how a young boy named Tommy came to be born. Using baking as a metaphor, Tommy's mother describes the process of egg donation in a fun and roundabout way when he requests a sibling out of the blue. This short children's book also briefly mentions other nontraditional means of family building such as surrogacy and adoption as Tommy begins to comprehend and appreciate how special all babies truly are. Jennifer Raney is a happily married Florida resident and graduate of UNLV. After a diagnosis of premature ovarian failure at the age of eighteen, Jennifer was devastated at the thought of never having a family of her own. Years of testing and medication therapy ensued before the final decision was made in 2015 to use an egg donor to conceive. The IVF process was a long and emotional struggle, and as she celebrated the news of a positive pregnancy test, Jennifer also questioned how she would explain this nontraditional conception to her future son. The search began for children's books she could use to begin this difficult conversation, but she could not seem to find the right one. A passion for helping others on this journey was born, and Jennifer used her love of baking as inspiration for this short metaphorical story. It is her hope that families choosing IVF, surrogacy, adoption, or any unconventional means of family building will be able to benefit from this useful tool as well.
