Welcoming love through embryo adoption

Adoption Assistance has formed a transformative partnership with the National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) in Knoxville, Tennessee. Together, we empower families by offering an alternative method to birth a child, unlocking new possibilities through the generous gift of embryo donation.

How our embryo adoption process works

Adoption Assistance families have the opportunity to screen and adopt embryos previously created through an in vitro fertilization cycle. These embryos are then implanted into the adoptive mother at the NEDC clinic by their highly qualified NEDC medical staff.

The NEDC’s overall pregnancy rate per transfer is 57% and its live-birth rate is 50%. You can find additional information on embryo adoption and further details on how exactly the embryo implantation process works by visiting

People love working with us

Five years ago we were blessed to use Adoption Assistance in conjunction with American Adoptions to bring our son into our home. The social worker was so kind and attentive and helped to guide our adoption process. We are blessed to still see the way Adoption Assistance continues to work to bring families together.

Adoption Assistance is amazing and helped us complete our family in 2017. We were home study approved in January of 2017 and, through the awesome networking they do with agencies and adoption attorneys, we brought our little guy home in April of the same year! Julie is outstanding and very attentive and was there with us every step of the way

There are no words to express the gratitude I have for Adoption Assistance. They are honest, hard working, detail oriented, and just simply a blessing. Lisa Mosley has worked and helped us from domestic situations to international processes. She is a joy to work with and her kindness and understanding are unmatched. Thank you Adoption Assistance!
