  1. I just found out about embryo adoption today. My question is this: if couples who have already paid thousands are donating the embryos, then why on earth is this Christian non profit charging $10,000?? I am excited about this idea but I just can't produce that amount. Please can someone answer this? Thank you.

    1. Hi Mellisa – The Snowflakes Embryo Adoption Program does have a program fee of $8,000, which covers a lot of the pieces that any family adopting an embryo would have to pay: genetic outreach and screening, providing counseling for all parties, matching services between genetic and adoptive parents, facilitating communication between genetic and adopting families, preparing contracts, relinquishments and other legal paperwork, facilitating consent and release forms if required by clinics prior to releasing embryos, facilitating communication between clinics and doctors to ensure that requirements are meet for the transfer of the embryos between states, obtaining necessary laboratory tests for the genetic family, coordinating travel of the embryos, shipping fees, maintaining files, providing post-adoption support and supervision, and cooperation in the court finalization process (if required by your state).

      There are additional expenses related to having a home study conducted ($1,000-$3,000) and fertility clinic frozen embryo transfer fees ($3,000-$5,000), bringing the total to adopt an embryo between $12,000 and $16,000. Adoptive parents only pay for the services required to adopt and transfer the embryo, not the embryo itself.
