Embryo adoption is a lower cost adoption choice when compared to the cost of domestic or international adoption, in vitro fertilization and the cost of purchasing human eggs.

Embryo adoption costs are primarily paid by the adopting family. Generally the donating family does not receive payment for their donation, nor should they expect the recipient family to cover any of the IVF expenses they have incurred. Embryo storage costs prior to the match are also the responsibility of the donor family. The recipient family may be asked to pay for storage fees after the match is made. If you have more questions, please watch our webinar about the cost of embryo adoption.
