Because Texas has no legal framework regulating the adoption of frozen embryos, CCI’s Embryo Adoption Program has instituted a process that is in keeping with the process found in traditional adoption.  In order to maximize the chance of success if the adoption were to be contested, the same safeguards and procedures that exist and are accepted in traditional adoption are also in effect and followed in this program. 

We make the best good faith efforts to ensure a successful embryo adoption for every adoptive parent.  However, CCI can not make any guarantees about the outcome of a frozen embryo adoption.
