American Infertility Association
Offers education, referrals, research, support and advocacy for those dealing with Infertility and Reproductive health disorders.

Embryo Adoption Resources
During IVF treatments, couples harvest multiple eggs and produce many embryos; those embryos that are not used in the first transfer are frozen for future attempts. These frozen embryos are the substance of hope for the infertile couple. If the couple conceives without using all of the stored embryos, they may choose to have the remaining unused embryos donated or placed for adoption, thereby allowing other infertile couples the experience of pregnancy and birth.

Embryo adoption is a relatively new process in which individuals who have frozen embryos that they do not plan on using to build their families agree to release the embryos for transfer to a recipient couple. The adopting family may either be known or anonymous to the donors. The intent is that the embryos will be transferred into the womb of the recipient mother, so that she and her husband may bear a child and be that child’s parents.
