How long does it take?
Generally, 2-4 months to find a family match for you. We can give You a better estimate when we get some information about your family and your needs.

How many embryos do we receive once we are matched with a family?
You will receive all the embryos that the donating/placing family has remaining. This could be 2-20 embryos (average 4-8). Once your family is complete, the embryos remaining would be matched with another family and would not be your responsibility to make any decisions for the remaining embryos.

Do you have embryos available right now?
Yes, we do. This includes embryos from many different racial and ethnic backgrounds and combinations.

If we are making our embryos available for another family, can we decide which family they will be placed in?
Yes, we will send you a family profile for an approved adopting family, based on strong similarities, values, and the desired degree of contact with each other. If this family feels right to you, we will send your info to them to see and approve of as well. If everyone is comfortable, that is a successful “family match”. You can choose any desired contact you desire, including “no contact”.
