What Should Go Into Your Family Profile

For many couples, one of the most intimidating part of the embryo adoption process is creating their family profile. This profile is created by both adopting and donating couples as a way to introduce themselves and find matching families in the embryo adoption process. Couples may find themselves worried about what to include, what to leave out, and how to present themselves in a way that will give them the best possible match to another family. Here are some tips to keep in mind when creating your family profile:

  • Be honest and heartfelt. This will be an emotional experience for everyone involved, so don’t feel that you need to mask your feelings. Be truthful about yourself and heartfelt about why you hope to adopt an embryo.
  • Include plenty of pictures. Include photos of your family, your home, and activities that you enjoy. A picture is worth a thousand words, and you want the photos that you include to give other families a sense of your lifestyle, hobbies, and personality.
  • Be yourself. Don’t worry about excluding information that you think a prospective family won’t like. Be yourself, and you are more likely to be matched with the right family. You want to find that one perfect family, so show them who you really are!
