What Is The Cost of Embryo Adoption?

For families considering their options when it comes to infertility, it is natural to worry. One of the biggest hurdles facing many families is the cost.

Some families choose traditional adoption agencies requiring the recipient(s) to have a “home study” performed ($1,000 to $3,000), “attorney fees” ($3,000 to $7,000), “social worker study” ($175 to $200) and Adoption fees ($30,000 to $50,000).The total expenses with traditional adoption agencies may vary from $50,000 to $100,000 USD. Others choose in vitro fertilization (IVF), an option that combines a man’s sperm and a woman’s egg outside the womb to create embryos. The average cost is $10,000-$18,000 per cycle. Others see donor eggs as the way to go, but with a wide cost spectrum to acquire donor eggs ranging from $10,000-$50,000 it might not be affordable.

Did you know there is a new choice out there, less expensive than the others?

Embryo Adoption allows adoptive families to give birth to their adopted child which is a major advantage in terms of cost. This makes embryo adoption one of the least expensive forms of adoption available.

This means you receive the best practices of adoption, a big chance of achieving a pregnancy, legal security, and, if all goes according to plan, a great chance of becoming a parent.

Embryo adoption is a lower cost adoption choice when compared to the cost of domestic or international adoption, in vitro fertilization and the cost of purchasing human eggs.

Embryo adoption costs are primarily split between the donating family and the adopting family. Generally the donating family does not receive payment for their donation, nor should they expect the recipient family to cover any of the IVF expenses they have incurred. Embryo storage costs prior to the match are also the responsibility of the donor family. As the donating family covers the largest percentage of the overall cost, Embryo Adoption is indeed life-giving love in action in an age of technology.
