Happy New Year from all of us at
Embryo Adoption Services of Cedar Park!
Jen and Jon’s Story
“Our family has been blessed with two wonderful adoptions with Maria through Embryo Adoption Services of Cedar Park not just once, but twice. In November of 2018 we began our first adoption. We completed our first transfer in April of 2019 and in December of 2019 our first son was born! His birth was an incredibly redeeming event for our family and our journey to parenthood as we had been yearning and dreaming of growing our family for 3 years at this point. After the transfer that gave us our firstborn, we didn’t have any more embryos from our first adoption. So in September of 2020, we opened up our second adoption. We rode the wave of anxious anticipation and excitement again of awaiting a match, coordinating medical care, and planning for a transfer. Similar to no two pregnancies being the same, our journeys from adoption of embryos to transfer were also nothing alike between our two adoptions. Making each of our boys’ journeys into our family beautiful and unique in their own ways. After matching with a second family, we completed a second transfer in February of 2021 and were overjoyed to bring our second son into the world in October of 2021. We have just celebrated our youngest’s first birthday, and our oldest son’s third birthday. Time has absolutely flown by the last few years watching them grow and learn every day. Their bond is such a cool thing to witness, and their brotherhood is something so special to our family.
With EASCP giving our family our greatest blessings in our two boys, it became an honor, privilege, and joy to get to be a part of this organization as the Bridge Project Coordinator. Helping facilitate communication between donors and adoptees is something very near and dear to me, and something that I don’t take lightly. It is a responsibility that I take seriously and do with love as I know what a gift these babies/children are who are born through embryo adoption. And how special the relationships held between families with the donor and adoptee can be. Your families are always on my heart, whether you’re at the beginning of an adoption or have already completed your family.”

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Rose and Ethan Welcome
Baby Boy Michael Amadeus!
Born November 16, 2022
FIRST BORN BABY!!
“We can’t stop thinking about how God started his story so many years ago, long before Ethan and I had even met. It’s incredible that he’s made his way to us. It reminds us of Psalm 139:16, “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all my days were written in Your book and ordained for me before one of them came to be.”
“It’s been new and strange to become a family of three but we’ve been enjoying it. We like to snuggle with Michael in the evening and watch an old show together (right now, The Pink Panther cartoon). He hates to have his diaper changed but Ethan discovered he loves the crinkle sound of the wipes wrapper and Rose hung a garland of snowflake lights above the changing table and he likes looking at them. He much prefers to nurse rather than nap but we have found that he easily goes to sleep in the car or on Rose’s chest in a carrier. He has mixed opinions about baths. He’s grown so much in just a month and has started to smile, sometimes at

All of our adopting moms have a approval to do an embryo transfer from a Reproductive Endocrinologist.
We match families based on similar race, religion, similar physical characteristics, kind of mutual level of openness desired, and other mutual similarities.
Donor families are able to select the adopting family first, then the adopting family approves the donor family. Learn more here:
