About Miracles Waiting:
Miracles Waiting is independent, and is not affiliated with any religious organization or adoption agency.
Miracles Waiting does not 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 we have made hundreds of matches, many of which have resulted in pregnancies.
Also, we are not a clinic, and we don't have embryos available for donation in storage. Our program is entirely web based; it 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 do not do the matching. Most donations arranged through Miracles Waiting are known donations and, at a minimum, the families will have email contact directly with each other.
The way we work at Miracles Waiting is as follows: recipients pay a one time fee of $150 to post a profile if they want, and they also are able to contact (or be contacted by) potential donors. But all we do is facilitate the match between the donor and the recipient. The rest will be between the donor and the recipient families. Also, both of the clinics (recipient and donor) should help guide the families through the process of embryo donation, as each clinic has different requirements.
Our fee is a one time fee to recipient of $150, and our services are FREE for donor families.
And as we understand the existing law, it is illegal to pay the donor families for their embryos... donors cannot be compensated for their embryos.
Also, recipient families will pay (but not to us) for expenses having to do with the embryo transfer, clinic expenses, the embryo donation contract, possible embryo storage, medications, etc.
The link below will show copies of the most recent donor ads/profiles published at the site, and also some of the matches ("matched" means the embryos are no longer available). They are available at the link to view only.
