Couples who have undergone in vitro fertilization treatments (IVF) know that sometimes one embryo isn’t enough. Often, doctors will transfer multiple embryos to increase the chance of successful implantation. Any remaining embryos are frozen. If couples have completed their family and still have remaining embryos in frozen storage they will then need to decide what to do with them.
Have you ever considered donating your remaining embryos? You could give a couple an amazing gift: the opportunity to be parents, to bring life into this world, and to lovingly raise a child. Tom and Annabelle wanted life for their six remaining embryos. Watch their story to hear about how they came to choose embryo donation.
Embryo donation can be a very emotional experience for some couples, and feeling a huge array of emotions is perfectly normal. While you’ll feel excited that you are offering another family the opportunity to become parents, you might be apprehensive about who will be adopting your embryos. You might be scared, elated, happy, nervous…or a mixture of all of those feelings at once. That’s why it is important to work with an agency who understands the feelings you are experiencing and allows you to be a part of the process of choosing a family for your embryos.
Look for a respected, experienced adoption agency who understands the unique circumstances of embryo donation. If you’d like to learn more about embryo donation and adoption or want to find an agency who can help, visit www.embryoadoption.org.
