My wife and I are starting to pursue adoption. One avenue that we feel drawn to in addition to traditional adoption is that of embryo adoption. I realize that this is a gray area that the church has not made a statement on yet, and I don’t really care to debate the moral complications involved (in this thread at least). I would like to hear from anyone else who has gone down this path, or at least contemplated it. Feel free to PM me if you prefer.
On a side note, I was saddened when I called the IRS to see if embryo adoption fees would count towards the adoption tax credit. It turns out that this is not legaly treated as an adoption, but as an exchange of property. According to our government, a person is not a person until they have a social security number. Until then, they have no rights.
