Meet Renee and her snowflake baby Hannah.
Renee and David told embryoadoption.com they couldn’t achieve pregnancy naturally, and as they began to explore infant adoption, they learned about snowflake babies–embryo adoption.
Renee says, “The idea of getting to experience pregnancy was really neat for me. I really wanted that.”
So, they decided to adopt an infant nine months earlier than normal.
They were matched with an out-of-state couple who gifted them with 12 embryos, and after a successful transfer and uneventful pregnancy Hannah Faith was born.
David says,“I truly believe that God had her set apart as a little embryo for our family.”
There are over 600,000 frozen embryos today. While in-vitro fertilization remains controversial, embryo adoption means over 3000 “snowflake babies” are here melting hearts, rather than facing being discarded and destroyed.
Although so small as to be undetected by the human eye, each of these embryos is a distinct, living, whole human being, a child perfectly made for the pleasure and good plans of the Lord.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
