Donating Parents Identifying Information

Thank you for considering to donate your embryos to Embryo Donation International (EDI)!

Why "Embryo Donation" and NOT "Embryo Adoption"?

Adoption refers to the the legal process where a new relationship is created between a parent and a live child. Adoptions can only be granted by the court after the birth of a child. Embryo Donation, however, is regulated by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and not the courts. While we here at EDI feel your embryos deserve a tremendous amount of respect, assigning personhood to an embryo has tremendous moral, ethical and legal ramifications.
