FULLERTON, Calif., ( -- To raise awareness about the relatively new process of human embryo donation and adoption, the one-stop informational Web site 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, 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. 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). Snowflakes started in 1997 as the only organization of its kind to facilitate the donation and adoption of frozen embryos for family building.

Nightlight's Embryo Donation and Adoption Awareness Campaign is supported by grant number 5 EAAPA941000-04-00 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the Department.
