Fair Start family planning Up Close: One family’s story
Anne and Matt deliberately planned a fair start for their child. They had both grown up in large families and had first-hand experience with the dilution of and competition for parental time, attention, and resources. They wanted Ellen to have the options and opportunities they hadn’t had. Anne and Matt also wanted to have the time and resources to give back to others in their community – through volunteering, teaching, donating, and nonprofit work.

But we can do better. With the Fair Start family planning model, even more children can have a fair start.
