Did You Miss It? We Have You Covered

video of Katie ShowKatie Couric recently dedicated the opening segment of her nationally syndicated talk show to embryo donation and adoption. The segment, titled “Snowflake Babies” focused on the story of embryo adoptive parents Kelly and Dan Gassman and their 9-month-old son Trevor. Dr. Robin Poe Zeigler, a Reproductive Endocrinologist from New Hope Fertility Center, and our very own Kimberly Tyson, Marketing and Program Director of the Embryo Adoption Awareness Center, also appeared on the show.

If you were unable to see the show, or you want to watch it again, we have made the full segment available on EmbryoAdoption.org.

Watch, share and help spread the good word about this exciting adoption choice.

Embryo Adoption Awareness Center Receives Two New Grants

confettiNightlight’s Embryo Adoption Awareness Center (EAAC), having submitted comprehensive proposals based on previous successes, is pleased to announce being awarded two grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The purpose of these grants is to increase public awareness of embryo donation and adoption, and ultimately increase the number of children being born through this exciting adoption choice.

With the new grants, we will continue our outreach to adoption and fertility clinic professionals across the nation, expand our outreach to OB/GYNs to include three new target regions and continue providing informational services to potential embryo donors and adopters who reach out to the Awareness Center team directly.

As we begin our new grant, we are looking forward to a great year of webinars, live chats, blogging, social media, and most of all, connecting with you and helping you understand embryo donation and adoption.

Learn more about embryo donation and adoption on the Awareness Center website, by chatting with us live, or by contacting us directly at 970-663-6799.

What’s Your Attitude and Practice? Take this survey before April 30!


Nightlight would like to encourage you to respond to this multi-national online survey of the attitudes and practices of people regarding assisted reproductive technologies (ART).

As many of you know, our Snowflakes program was created to both help people who have used ART choose a positive solution for remaining frozen human embryos through embryo donation and to help families achieve their hope of pregnancy and childbirth.

Since 1997 there have now been over 330 babies born to Snowflake families as a result of the generosity of many embryo donations.

The primary investigator of the study is Dr. Megan Best, an Australian physician and recent author of Fearfully and Wonderfully Made (Matthias Media, 2012). The survey is being sponsored in the U.S. by the Center for Bioethics and Human Dignity (CBHD).

Please take the survey now.
