Why Infertility Isn’t Always a Factor in Embryo Adoption

For the majority of couples exploring the embryo adoption option for building their families, they’ve come to a clinic or adoption agency after a long struggle with infertility. Embryo adoption gives them an affordable, highly successful way to have the baby they’ve been dreaming about for so long. However, there is no requirement that you need to have an infertility diagnosis before you can adopt frozen embryos. In fact, there are women choosing this family building method who have no trouble conceiving and who may even have children of her own already. They are making this choice for many reasons, including:

  • They want to adopt children but enjoy the idea of experiencing pregnancy with their child. Pregnancy is an incredible chance to bond with an adopted child, and many women are excited that they can expand their families through adoption while still experiencing the joys of pregnancy and childbirth.
  • Their hearts are called to give frozen embryo a chance at the life they were created to have. Some women are compelled to adopt frozen embryos when they discover there are 600,000 embryos in frozen storage in the United States waiting to experience life.
  • They are single and don’t want to wait any longer to find the right partner. They may not want to wait until they are older to have a child and decide that embryo adoption gives them an option to have children now without waiting for a partner.

Whatever your reason, infertility doesn’t have to be a factor in your decision to adopt an embryo. If you’d like to learn more about embryo adoption or find an agency to work with on your adoption, visit www.embryoadoption.org.
