When considering family building options, if you are able to carry a pregnancy, this may be a great option for you. Embryo donation and adoption is the answer to two problems: it’s a solution for the complete family that still has embryos in storage. It’s also a solution for a couple with fertility challenges who long to be parents AND to experience a pregnancy. Hundreds of families have been blessed with this gift of hope.
Every embryo in storage is full of potential; and is ultimately the hope of a child. We believe it is largely unknown that there are literally thousands of embryos in storage waiting to be matched, donated and given the possibility of life.
As this process currently falls under Contract law, you will need the services of an attorney as well as a completed, approved home study to proceed with an Embryo Adoption. Best practice recommends a post placement visit or two but there is no need for a court finalization – as you will have given birth to your adopted child. The cost is no more than most domestic adoptions and ranges from $12,000-15,000.
We recommend visiting www.embryoadoption.org for more detailed information, answers to your specific questions and educating yourself on the risks involved. In addition, The Embryo Adoption Awareness Center offers free monthly webinars covering every aspect of this option.
When is embryo adoption the right choice?
· Embryo Adoption agencies currently have more embryos available than clients waiting to adopt
· The wait time for an embryo adoption is months – not years
CHI is aware of a one-hour webinar which provides you with a detailed look at the advantages of this unique and successful adoption option. It will occur on January 23 at 8:00 am. Details can be found by following this link: “Embryo Adoption: The Affordable and Accessible Choice”.
Do you know anyone who has completed an embryo adoption? Have you? We would love to hear your story.
