Why NRFA?

NRFA was created by actual embryo donors and embryo recipients who desired to empower individuals or families to take the lead on building their families or donating their embryos. NRFA has dramatically reduced the extraordinary cost associated with embryo donation. We provide a safe space for you to find the perfect situation for you, at your own pace, and we are here to help along the way.

You’ve been so kind , I appreciate your advice! I don’t want to keep you, but know that you have helped us a bunch.

Your service is amazing. I matched with my donors back in October and I am gearing up for a transfer of the embryos I adopted through the connection made on this site. Can’t thank you enough

Anonymous, Embryo Recipient

I have successfully matched with a wonderful family who received my embryo. I am immensely grateful for the great work you have done to get us matched!  Again, thank you so much for all the great work you have done to help so many families!

Anonymous, Embryo Donor

I matched through your site and have a 5-month old baby boy because of you!

Sam, Embryo Recipient

Thank you so much for your site.  Embryo donation can be a really stressful process (as you know) but your site made it much easier and it’s such a relief now to have it all behind me.

Linda, Embryo Donor

I hope this email finds you well, and that you and your family are staying safe and sane through all this! 

I’m writing to update you on the embryo donation you helped facilitate last year. Everything went perfectly, and my wife and I have a healthy, happy, beautiful baby girl who’ll be six weeks old tomorrow. She’s been an absolute ray of sunshine for everyone involved. She’s received so many gifts from across the continent that we barely have room for everything–we’ve already had to donate some of it. Our family and friends ask for pics of her every day, our neighbors come out to see her (from a safe distance) when we go for walks, and our friends drive by the house so they can see her from their cars when we’re outside. She’s perfect! Her genetic family is also delighted, and we’re in regular contact with them. I can’t imagine there’s a kid anywhere in the world that’s getting more love and support than this little girl.

Thank you for your help – we did match on NRFA.org, and have been extraordinarily pleased with NRFA so far. It’s an amazingly wonderful service that you provide and has given us renewed hope for the future.

My husband and I created an NRFA profile after deciding to pursue embryo adoption.  Within 4 weeks, we were matched!  Bridget was very helpful in assisting us with writing up an embryo adoption contract. Things did slow down due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but at the same time we feel like everything happened so quickly! We felt confident through the whole process thanks to our wonderful donor and the assistance from NRFA. It has been 9 month since we created that profile. All 3 of our “embabies” have been transfered to our clinic in San Francisco and we are 6 days post transfer with our first.
