This is my next step as well. Where I live it runs 3,000-4,000 and some states require you to do an in home study just like as if you were adopting a live child which is around $150-$200 but where I am one isn't required.

I have done it

I have had beutiful successes!  I have also had some that do not work so you have to be patient!

It is the MOST awesome thing in the world!!  TO know you gave a child life that would otherwise die in a frozen trashcan - is totally wonderful beyond belief!    It is also great for married couples becuase they do not feel that the baby is more one than the other - it is your baby!

There are better clinics than others and there are better places.  I know of a private embryo adoption group - it takes 300 bucks to join and the parents get reimbursed if you adopt theirs and this gives parents some say

BUT if you do through a clinic - the families are anonomous - so it is ALL YOURS!  Again, you will save lives which is beyond comparison.

The cost can range from 2-5 thousand (total including meds)  depending on the place and how much your insurance covers. 

The waiting list also ranges.  I am tempted to get back on the waiting list at cooper center - where i had luck - just not sure I want to bite that bullet - the last time - I signed up on the list and had my embryos within a month and my frst FET scheduled within 21 days - it was great - they also do not require you to do any additional visits at their location - which is extremely great

RIght now I am on the list for my local clinic - the nurse in charge told me I will probably get to pick embies in August - so that is a back up plan for me - it feels like a forever wait

Feel free to ask more

It's lower cost but you don't get to claim it on your taxes....(unless in Wyoming) because an embryo isn't technically a child as far as the law is concerned.


Go onto fb and search embryo adoption. They have a page with testimonials and info on the process.

I've been quoted ten thousand to thirty thousand a cycle

Good luck! I hope neither of us get to that point. I like the idea of still giving birth to the baby, I think if you carry it then it is yours just about as close as you can get. Plus not everybody would have to know about the adoption

WOW! Then if the other posters are right then it does seem much cheaper.
