EmbryoAdoption.org Adds More Web Videos to Raise Awareness about Family-Building through Embryo Donation and Adoption
October 29, 2009
FULLERTON, Calif., (christiansunite.com) -- To raise awareness about the relatively new process of human embryo donation and adoption, the one-stop informational Web site EmbryoAdoption.org launched three new Web videos.
The first video, "A True Story of Embryo Donation & Adoption," reveals a compelling story of two families brought together by their common desire to become parents. Two additional videos share embryo donation and adoption testimonials from couples that struggled with infertility and found hope in the embryo donation and adoption process.
"There are just so many couples that just don't know what to do with their embryos," says embryo donor Jennifer Spohr, as she tells her story in the first video. "They have many frozen [embryos] and if they don't do something, they're going to stay frozen forever."
Hundreds of thousands of frozen human embryos in the United States alone remain in storage and in limbo, while couples grapple with the difficult decision of what to do with their remaining embryos after completing their family building efforts. As couples weigh their options, many learn about embryo donation through the site's fact sheets, donor testimonials, adoption stories, news archive, service providers and much more. In fact, site traffic amounts to over 20,000 page views per month.
In addition to the three new Web videos posted this year, EmbryoAdoption.org features eight videos posted in past years. Among these videos, visitors to the site will find perspectives from the medical community, background about where frozen embryos come from, and footage of special moments in the lives of children born through embryo adoption.
EmbryoAdoption.org is maintained by Nightlight ® Christian Adoptions as part of its Embryo Donation and Adoption Awareness Campaign. Nightlight provides adoption services through the Snowflakes® Frozen Embryo Adoption program (Snowflakes).
