These are the primary eligibility requirements for the Snowflakes Program.

  • The maximum eligibility age for adopting mothers is 45 years old
  • The maximum eligibility age for adopting fathers is 55 years old
  • Married for a minimum of 2 years for couples
  • Snowflakes does accept single women
  • Snowflakes will ship your adopted embryos to one of our preferred partner clinics (we have over 35 throughout the U.S.)
  • Snowflakes personalized matching begins with the placing family and ends with a mutually agreed upon match with the adopting family  

There are 3 ways to begin your embryo adoption journey.

1. You may choose to have a personal consultation with a Snowflakes Inquiry Specialist.

One of our professional staff members will spend time with you via phone and email to better understand your unique circumstances and help you determine if adoption is the right choice for your family. They will help you gain an understanding of program specifics and answer your questions. They are great listeners! We want you to understand our entire process before you choose our program.

Paige, our Snowflakes Inquiry Specialist, will answer your questions.

2. Perhaps filling out forms is more to your liking. The second way you may begin your embryo adoption journey is by completing our online Inquiry Form.

The Inquiry Form helps you determine which adoption program is right for your family. After completing the form a Nightlight team member will contact you.

3. Not quite ready to talk or fill out forms? No problem! The third option is to gather a little more information.

We are happy to supply you with several of our most popular resources to help you learn more about Snowflakes and embryo adoption.
