Why should we adopt through QFA instead of our fertility clinic?
At Quiver Full Adoptions, Inc., we encourage open adoption whereas most fertility clinics require anonymous donations and adoptions. We want your child to be able to know their heritage and where they came from. Ultimately we are driven by our calling to provide quality adoption services and believe the relationships formed and quality of service received is what sets our brand and agency apart.
Do we choose the Fertility Clinic?
Yes, we allow our adoptive families to choose the Fertility Clinic they are most comfortable with for the Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) procedure. We arrange the shipping and prepare your clinic for the arrival of the embryos. You may also choose to travel to the fertility clinic your embryos were originally created and stored. We will work with you to create a seamless adoption journey based upon your preferences.
How does the legal process work?
Adoption Agreement & Relinquishment Forms are legal contracts drawn between the donating family and adopting family. While there is currently no legislation regulating Embryo Adoption, we work with experienced attorneys every step of the way. The contract covers the transfer of property and also includes some additional adoption language to ensure all bases are covered legally. The contract is signed and executed prior to the embryos being shipped to the adoptive parent's fertility clinic of choice, and before the embryos are implanted through in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Why Quiver Full?
The name Quiver Full comes from Psalm 127: 4-5, "Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!" We believe children are a blessing and pursuing adoption in order to grow your family is a beautiful thing!
We are not a part of the quiver full movement—we actually had no clue what this even was until we started getting asked this question.
What is the average cost of Embryo Adoption through Quiver Full?
The average cost of Embryo adoption is $15,000. Our average (Embryo) adoption at QFA is $12,000. QFA's average adoption cost includes both agency and attorney fees, home study fees, and estimated transfer fees. With QFA, our agency fees roll over into each additional adoption until you have a successful pregnancy.
*There is no cost for a family to donate embryos.
Does QFA offer open or closed adoptions?
Open adoption is encouraged; however, we will respect your choice of an open or closed adoption, and match you with recipients who agree to whatever level of openness you desire.
