I can't believe I am typing this...

...embryo "adop*tion"....

Yep, we found a clinic two hours away that allows "adoption" of embryos. They have 50+ embryos on ice currently ready to be matched with a couple. It's a really low tech and affordable option as compared to the mind blowing cost of donor egg IVF. My gosh, I get sick thinking of what that pathetic cycle cost us.

Truth be told, this is what I wanted to do two years ago. We adopted our two beautiful daughters and this was the natural next step for me. However, the clinic we were working with (who has a satellite office at my GYN) did not offer it so I just thought it wasn't possible in our area.

After learning about this opportunity at the other clinic I called Ivan at work. He easily and happily said "yes" to trying this next step. Embryo adop*tion will be the final attempt at pregnancy for sure. After that we plan to stop at two or adopt again.

Our journey to another child isn't over just yet! :)

Yay - I've heard great things about embryo adoption, and my bloggy friend Best When Used By just gave birth to her adopted emby (http://bwub.wordpress.com/)

This seems like fate stepping in, I so hope this is the piece to the puzzle you need!
