“I Adopted an Embryo”

Every pregnancy story is unique. Some couples go through rounds of fertility tests and treatments in order to have a child; while others decide to adopt. Now what is becoming a more common practice is embryo adoption. Having been unable to conceive, Kelli Crites-Gassman adopted an embryo. With embryo adoption, she was able to experience pregnancy. She relates, “Through embryo adoption, we have two amazing children, a close relationship with our donor family, and have been able to encourage other couples struggling with infertility.”
