Two loving moms seeking happy, caring home(s) for our 6 embryos.


First, thank you for taking the time to consider us in such a sensitive and important decision in your life. Regardless of whether we make a connection, we truly wish you all the best in growing your family.

So a little about us… We are a two-mom family that has been lucky enough to have four amazing additions to our lives. Both of us wanted to experience pregnancy, so after finding an incredible open donor through a Cryobank, my wife carried our first son who was conceived via IUI in 2011 on the first try from this donor.

When we were ready to try again for our second little one, there were a limited number of vials left from the same donor. Since we wanted our children to have the same donor, I decided to go the IVF route instead of IUI to increase our chances of success. We never thought that we would have 19 healthy embryos from only one try with this method (and the huge responsibility of making sure we give these little guys a chance!)

I implanted three of these embryos (fresh), which brought our second son into this world in 2013. Since we both wanted a large family, a little over a year later, my wife was implanted with three of these embryos (frozen), and we now have two year-old twin girls. All of our children are healthy and we had no complications during our pregnancies.

During our initial search for donor recipients, we found two wonderful families which resulted in three successful pregnancies. We now we face the incredible responsibility of finding a home for our remaining 6 embryos. We could not consider any other option but donation to help another family experience the joy that these little ones have brought into our lives. We do not have a preference regarding a specific “type” of family – as long as you can provide a happy, loving, stable home, we would be honored to talk with you.

We understand the sensitivity of whether to consider an open donation. Ideally, we would prefer an open donation while of course respecting your family’s privacy. We are open donors to the two families we have connected with and we currently participate in a sibling registry with families of the same donor. We have found it very rewarding to know our children will have the option to connect with their donor-siblings in the future if they wish. It is also fun to share photos and to correspond with these families at a level each family is comfortable with.

Our six embryos are in two groups of three and we will likely be considering donation to two families.
