NEED HELP FINDING BOOKS

My Dh and I have been blessed with a beautiful DD from sperm donor insemination. She is now 9months old. At first we were going to just keep in between the two of us but the secret was just too large to keep from my parents so we decided to tell them and since have told close family and friends. Their reception to the news has been fantastic and our attitude towards this has been we just wanted to be a family and a family does not have to me a mom, dad and bio children. There are many types of familes - and the meaning of family to us means people who live or don;t live with you that you care about and share memories together with. Anyways since we have told others the decision whether or not to tell DD was pretty easy. We have to tell her because I want the news to come from us not someone else. Could you imagine how that would feel? We want to be as open as possible and start early introducing different ways families come together and how she came to us. We thought stories or videos (child aged) would be a good way to start but we have reached a dead end. Does anyone know of any good children's books or video's relating to donor insemination?

Thanks

The donor conception network in the UK (google) should have some reccomendations in their library; also try posting on the donor sibling registry (US40 registration).
Good luck.
Post back if you find any good ones.
