About Miracles Waiting,
Miracles Waiting is an online destination to connect families waiting to receive embryos with embryo donors.
Miracles Waiting does not employ, recommend or endorse any adoption provider or adoption seeker nor is it responsible for the conduct of any adoption provider or adoption seeker. Miracles Waiting provides information and tools to help embryo donors and recipient families connect and make informed decisions. However, each individual is solely responsible for selecting an appropriate adoption provider or adoption seeker for themselves or their families and for complying with all applicable laws in connection with any relationship they establish. Miracles Waiting does not provide legal or medical advice, or engage in any conduct that requires a professional license.
Miracles Waiting is independent and not affiliated with any religious organization, or adoption agency. Miracles Waiting doesn’t turn anyone down because of race, age, marital status, sexual preferences, or religion. We feel that such requirements are the concern of those donating and receiving embryos in accordance with their own preferences, circumstances and beliefs, and should not be determined by Miracles Waiting. We offer embryo donors and recipients the opportunity to find each other, but we allow them the freedom to work out the details of their embryo donation on their own terms. We have been very successful in this endeavor and have made hundreds of matches, many of which have resulted in pregnancies.
Miracles Waiting is not a clinic and we also don't have embryos available for donation in storage. Our program is entirely web based and works as a matching service for donors and recipients. This allows the donors to make "known" donations and for both the donors and recipients to create the agreement and relationship they want. It is always up to the family donating the embryos who they pick for their embryos and not us.
We don’t do the matching. Most donations arranged through Miracles Waiting are known donations and, at a minimum, you will have email contact directly with the recipient families. All we do is facilitate the match between the donor and the recipient. The rest will be between the donors and you. Also both of the clinics (yours and the donors) should help guide you and the donor through the process of embryo donation, as each clinic has different requirements.
About screening: We do not request any screenings from families. This is always up to the family donating their embryos, not us.
If you are an embryo donor, you will need to request from the families you are matching with, any screening that is important to you or that is advised by your legal representative. If you are an embryo recipient, it will depend on the donor family donating to you if they will request any screening from you.
We urge our members to always seek legal representation when drawing up an embryo donation contract so you will protect yourself and others involved from engaging in any unwillingly illegal transaction.
