A woman reads the Embryo Adoption Guide on her cell phoneImagine completing your dream of growing your family through in vitro fertilization and still having some frozen embryos left over at your fertility clinic. What should you do? Or maybe you have genetic or infertility issues that won’t allow you to conceive, but you still want to experience pregnancy. Does this mean you must give up on your dreams?
As a Christian, I see these embryos as the earliest moments of life for each child. And as a mother, I know how important it is to know where your children are, even if they are children you have never known. Adopting an embryo is a new solution for hopeful parents and embryo donors alike, and it relies on the field of assistive reproductive technology (ART).
I have just released a new book, Embryo Adoption Guide…Everything You Need to Know About Embryo Adoption for Embryo Donors and Adoptive Parents. In it, you’ll find detailed information on embryo adoption and answers to commonly-asked questions. Since assisted reproductive technology methods can be a challenging subject to understand, I wanted to create an easy-to-read guide that makes this subject simple. I’ve included links to all the resources you’ll need if you choose to pursue embryo adoption, like attorneys nationwide. Plus, you’ll find recommended reading for embryo recipients, donors, and children born from embryo adoption.
After losing seven pregnancies, I achieved my dreams of parenthood through the adoption of my son. That miracle led me to my life’s work of helping birth parents and adoptive parents connect through open adoption. In an open adoption, the birth mother’s ability to choose a family for her baby brings her peace – she knows the type of life her child will have.
Embryo adoption offers the same opportunity for embryo donors. Not only can they choose the parents, but they can also remain a part of the child’s life if they choose to have a relationship that includes updates. An open embryo adoption puts the child first. The child will know about who they are and where they came from.
For adopters of embryos, they will have information on the embryo’s background, including the embryo’s birth parents’ genetic and medical history. Parents donating embryos can receive updates and even photos of their biological child. I cover how open embryo adoption works from beginning to end in my new book, including the legal perspectives, psychological aspects, and medical facts.
Embryo Adoption Guide…Everything You Need to Know About Embryo Adoption for Embryo Donors and Adoptive Parents is now available to read exclusively through Amazon Kindle. It’s free to read if you have Kindle Unlimited!
