Are you interested in donating your embryos?

One of the choices available to you is to give your remaining embryos to another family.  You are able to choose the family yourselves. It gives your embryos the opportunity to have the life you created them for.

There are never any fees for donors!

Each snowflake is frozen. We understand that each snowflake is unique. Each snowflake is a gift from heaven. We hope each donated embryo will become a snowflake baby.

Hence the name for our embryo donation and adoption program: Snowflakes. For more than 17 years the Snowflakes team of professionals has enabled families to choose who will receive their gift of remaining embryos. They have helped fulfill the dreams of people who have yearned to hold their infant child.

Believe it or not, the miracle of giving birth to your adopted baby is possible. The Snowflakes Program makes it possible for you to adopt embryos from couples who have completed IVF treatments and have remaining embryos. These embryos are currently stored in fertility clinics and cryobanks throughout the U.S. and are waiting for a loving home. There are now more than 600,000 frozen embryos in storage in the United States, and hundreds of thousands more worldwide. Couples with remaining embryos are choosing embryo donation through programs like Snowflakes because they are able to select the family who receives their embryo donation.

You may have already attempted IVF without success – perhaps several times!  So have many of our successful embryo adopting families.  You may not be able to afford in vitro fertilization.  The cost of infertility treatments can be beyond the reach of some couples who would earnestly love to give birth to a baby of their own. Perhaps your Reproductive Endocrinologist is recommending that you use donor human eggs for your next IVF treatment.  Why not consider using donated human embryos instead?

Our Inquiry Specialist, Amy, is available to answer your questions and get you started on your embryo adoption journey. Call or email her today at:
