In order to help you get your embryos placed in a timely manner, we ask new embryo donors to complete all of their initial documentation within two (2) months. On average, donor parents are able to complete the documents within 4-6 weeks. The reward for completing your documents in a timely manner? Snowflakes will pay for your FDA required infectious disease testing. If you are unable to complete your documents within two (2) months, you will be responsible for the cost of infectious disease testing.
Most embryo adoption costs*are covered by the adoptive family. Storage fees for the embryos will continue to be paid by the placing parents until the embryos are transferred by legal contract to the adopting family.
* There is a fee for placing families who only have 1 or 2 remaining embryos. Why? Because sets of 1 or 2 embryos are more difficult to match with our average adopting family who is interested in adopting 4-6 embryos. Snowflakes often matches two placing families who have 1 or 2 embryos each with one adopting family. We do this so the placing family will achieve a match more quickly and to provide the adopting family with the number of embryos they desire. Please contact us to learn more about your options.
