Once You Find A Match

  • The recipient's lawyer will guide the legal process and the IVF clinic will guide the medical process.

  • Typically, both families will sign a notarized contract which relinquishes the rights of the donors to the adoptive parents.

  • Donors will contact their fertility clinic and request the paperwork to release their medical records and embryos to the adoptive family's doctor.

  • Once the recipient's clinic gives their approval and all FDA required tests have been completed (if necessary), transportation will be arranged between the storage facility and the recipient's clinic.

  • Frozen embryo transfer takes place.
