Willa: Adored By All! Embryo Adoption Shares the Love!

“Willa was 6 months old as of October and she has been busy! She is sitting on her own and starting to eat food. In August Willa was dedicated at church with our family and close friends surrounding her with love and prayer. The weather was beautiful, so we were able to spend lots of time outside working on the property, feeding our animals, and playing in the pool.”

“Willa has yet to do something she doesn’t like, she just wants to be a part of the fun and see everyone involved. To say that she is adored would be an understatement! Willa is lucky to have both sides of the family in town, so she spends a day with each grandma every week. We were able to visit the ocean with her Uncle Joshua and Auntie Sam and have our friends from Tennessee visit. We’re thankful to have her in our family and join in on the adventures!”
Kaleb, Lori, & Willa

Embryo Adoption and Donation – Reading Resources

The Pea That Was Me Volume 3: An Embryo Donation Story is great way to introduce children conceived through embryo donation to the idea that “some very nice people” (a man and a woman) donated an extra “pea” (or embryo) to help bring them into the loving arms of “mommy and daddy”. May be read to children as young as 3 years old, and has room at the end to fill in your own child’s details. Appropriate for both anonymous and known embryo donation as an initial introduction to the concept.
