When couples use in vitro fertilization to achieve pregnancy, they will often have embryos remaining after they complete their family. One option available to them is to donate those embryos to another couple. Donation for reproduction is the only life choice for remaining embryos. The Snowflakes program allows the embryo donor to select a recipient family for their embryo gift. That embryo donor family could be you. The adopting family is able to use your donated embryos to achieve a pregnancy and give birth to their adopted child.
Just as each snowflake is frozen, unique and a gift from heaven, so are each of our Snowflakes Babies. We hope to help each donated embryo grow, develop and live a full life. In the intricate design of each flake of snow, we find the Creator reflecting the individual human heart.
The ever-increasing use of infertility treatments, particularly in vitro fertilization (IVF), has resulted in an unprecedented number of embryos in cryo-preservation. For the families who have remaining embryos they don’t plan to use, the only solution that gives the embryos an opportunity to live is donation for reproduction.
