Embryo adoption made simple.
As every family, adoption, and embryo is unique, it would be impossible to guarantee you a specific timeline or process. However, based on our experience at NRFA, these steps provide a good example of what you can expect.
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.
