First time Parents!
Kristin and Phillip
It’s been a very busy week because on Tuesday (November 24) we welcomed the long awaited love of our lives, Mr. Silas Adler. His arrival was more than I even dreamed it could be. We could not feel more blessed! The experience of becoming a new parent, functioning on less than 2 hours is not easy, but we’re adjusting already and can’t believe how fortunate we were to be chosen the be this sweet little guy’s parents. ~ Kristin
Embryo adoption is a beautiful way to grow a family! This sweet boy will now know the love of parents, and a life full of love and promise! Look at that happy face.
Welcome to the world Silas!
The miracle moment of birth. Such a thrilling moment for all, but to the parents that have waited, prayed, and worried are now home free! Baby born safely! Embryo adoption works!
Kristin and Phillip!

Medical Moment – Embryo Adoption
Baby Born After 27 years in the freezer!
From LifeSite News
Mark Mellinger November 30th
An East Tennessee baby whose birth was facilitated by the National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) has made history with her arrival. Molly Everette Gibson, the daughter of Tina and Ben Gibson, spent more than 27 years as an embryo in frozen preservation, setting the new known record for the longest-frozen embryo to ever come to birth, according to research staff at the University of Tennessee Preston Medical Library.
Molly was frozen on October 14, 1992. She was thawed by NEDC Lab Director & Embryologist Carol Sommerfelt on February 10, 2020 and transferred to Tina’s uterus by NEDC President & Medical Director Dr. Jeffrey Keenan on February 12, 2020. She was born October 26, 2020, weighing 6 lbs. 13 oz. and measuring 19 inches long.
What makes all of this even more special is that Molly broke her own sister’s record! Fellow NEDC baby Emma Wren Gibson, born in 2017, had been frozen for more than 24 years, holding the known record for longest-frozen embryo to come to birth until Molly’s arrival. Both girls were frozen together as
embryos and are full genetic siblings.
“I think this is proof positive that no embryo should ever be discarded, certainly not because it is ‘old!’” said Dr. Keenan. “This is also a testament to the excellent embryology work of Carol Sommerfelt. She is perhaps the preeminent embryologist in the country when it comes to thawing frozen embryos. And of course it’s a testament to how good God is, and to His infinite goodness and love.”
