What Kind of People are Adopting Embryos?

Embryo adoption is becoming more and more common within the United States. While the technology for the procedure has been around for more than 30 years, it’s really only in the last few years that people have even heard about the option. Today, stories about embryo adoption can be found on television, in the newspaper, and on the radio nearly every week. So who are the people adopting embryos in order to build their families? 

  • They are couples struggling with infertility. Many people who seek embryo adoption as a family building method do so because they are unable to conceive a child through other methods. Maybe they’ve had an infertility diagnosis, their own IVF treatments were unsuccessful, or maybe adoption was just too expensive. Embryo adoption could provide the solution they need.
  • They are families moved by the stories of more than 600,000 embryos in frozen storage after in vitro fertilization treatments. Maybe they already have children, maybe they want more, but some people who are adopting embryos aren’t doing so because of fertility struggles. Some of these families are moved by the fact that these embryos were made for life but sitting in cold storage suspension indefinitely.
  • They are people just like you.
