Here is City Jen's response to one of the Embryo Adoption Yahoo Groups we follow:
Wow- what a busy couple of days of posts!!!
I personally believe that the two blasts that I was blessed with on 2-28-09 and had transferred on 5-21-09 were at the time of transfer and are now, as they sleep behind me, babies. They were never "balls of cells". If one or both of them would not have survived, I would have mourned the loss. If our donor parents decide to donate Sarah and Anna's remaining sibling embryos to science or let them thaw without a properly prepared womb to be transferred into, I will consider this murder.
Unfortunately, many disagree and the laws of today do not support my beliefs.
I believe this is why God has blessed my family with Sarah and Anna. Specifically to put a names and faces on what others believe are JUST "balls of cells".
I have promised God that I will do what I can to increase awareness regarding this and to help rescue as many babies out of the freezers as possible as I believe they ARE babies that are frozen in time.
AND... -work with my Infertility Specialist to create a not for profit program that will NOT take advantage of recipients of embryos financially
All of this will continue to take time and energy away from our 7 adopted blessings, and this is how important I feel it is to get the word out about Embryo Adoption and show others that our girls are living proof that embryos are more than "balls of cells", they are babies in need of a properly prepared womb to grow in.

We are just 2 simple Jens brought together through the miracle of embryo adoption. City Jen gave birth to her miracle twin daughters in January 2010. Country Jen gave birth to her miracle baby girl on June 14, 2010. Between the 2 Jens, we have 15 children. City Jen has 5 adopted children & 2 children adopted as embryos. Country Jen has 1 birth daughter, 6 adopted children & one child adopted as an embryo. Our goal is to help educate, encourage & give free advice both solicited and unsolicited on the miracle of embryo adoption.
