Has anyone ever considered this?

Bethany Embryo Adoption

I don't think it would be an option for my family because we can have biological children, but it does sound ideal to me.

Personally I have very hard pregnancies. Although I have had biological children, it isn't best for me to continue to do so. It has nothing to do with baby though, just me. So this wouldn't work for someone like me.

However, for those who wish to carry a baby but cannot for whatever reason conceive a child of their own, I think it's a great thing!

I would not consider it because I can conceive, but have problems during pregnancy. I do think it is a great thing though!

I did a lot of research yesterday and it is definitely something we can pursue if we choose to, so that's exciting.

I would rather donate them than have them destroyed-I wish somebody would have donated embryos to us when we needed them, but that isn't an option here

I just want to caution you on the use of some language, especially on adoption boards. What sounds ideal to you, may not be ideal to many others. All people don't desire the same thing when it comes to parenting a child and all mothers don't desire to carry a child, nor do they need their "own" child. I typically don't get bent out of shape with PC language but have been frustrated by what I have seen by what is perceived as the hierarchy of preference when it comes to adoption on this board.

You bring up a good point, eashley. I am a member of a few other board about foster care and adoption and we have discussions about this type thing often. I think I'll start another thread about it now!

I can understand your reasoning behind the use of the my "own" child when referring to biological children and have edited it. Thanks for the heads-up.

I must say, though, that I am extremely offended by your remarks in the other thread. You derived an implied meaning that I think "biological children are best", etc., where it did not exist. I never said that what is ideal for me should, could or would be ideal for others. I simply wanted to know if anyone had experience they could share with me as I am very interested in pursuing this route in adoption. Parents all make the decision of when and how they add a child to their family whether that be with an adoption, a surrogacy, an unplanned or planned pregnancy. The fact that I had biological children first does not mean that I have some hierarchical attitude of where children come from. That is a hop, skip and jump away from saying that parents who have biological and adopted children love their biological children more and that is unjust and unfounded when you don't know the women of this board in real life. Remember the online world is a difficult place to express thoughts and even the most articulate people can be misunderstood, so it's best to give people the benefit of the doubt.

You edited your post so it is very hard to adequately comment on your original post. I have no idea if you have biological children or not. My comment was based on the fact that your first post made a comment about terms such as "this is ideal" and used terms such as embryo adoption allowed me to have "my own" children. However, since you deleted your post, it is impossible to comment.
