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.

  1. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
