Giving the Gift of Motherhood

We are very excited to bring you a three-part interview series dedicated to discussing and raising awareness for embryo adoption, a unique option for anyone desiring to start a family but unable to do so on their own. To begin our series, we first spoke with Rebecca Henderson, a woman who has battled through years of infertility, IVF, and then choosing to participate in embryo adoption. Her story is the first chapter in a truly remarkable tale of joy, hope, and selfless love.
