“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

Embryo Adoption Info (from Amy Strayer) and a Free Webinar on Wed., June 27th and Monthly on the 4th Wednesday.

As you may know, the Embryo Adoption Awareness Center (EAAC) receives grant support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services specifically to increase embryo adoption awareness.  Today, there are well over 600,000 embryos in frozen storage in the United States. We hope by establishing a relationship with adoption agencies like LDS Family Services  we will continue to increase the number of families adopting embryos each year. The beauty of embryo adoption is that it allows the adopting family to experience pregnancy and give birth to their adopted child.

 If you would like to view one of our brochures or for any further information, please contact me or visit our website at www.embryoadoption.org.

I also wanted to let you know that the Awareness Center offers adoption professionals educational opportunities on the 4th Wednesday of each month via webinars. Our next agency webinar, The Donor Sibling Registry: Helping People Discover Their Roots, is scheduled for Wednesday, June 27. In this one-hour event Wendy Kramer, founder of the Donor Sibling Registry (DSR), and Jana Rupnow MA (LPC Intern of Fertility and Family and Baylor University), discuss the grief and loss experienced by donor children regarding their genetic connections. Learn how the DSR came to be and how it is now helping thousands of children created via donor egg/sperm/embryos discover their origins, connect with genetic family members and work through the emotion of their donor conception history. You can choose to audit this webinar at no charge, or we are offering certificates of completion for submission to the CEU credit provider of your choice for $25 per person or $50 per business entity for this event.

To register for any of our monthly educational events, visit our Webinar Registration Page.

If there is anything else I can do to assist you, please don’t hesitate to ask.  Again, thank you for considering learning more about embryo adoption.
