Simon John was born at 12:37pm on June 25th
He is 8 lb. 4 oz and 20.5″
“Our second and last little miracle embryo came into the world on June 25th to join his biological older sister. He had a nuchal cord that caused him a Code Pink medical emergency. After three minutes of not breathing, the NICU team performed a neonatal resuscitation and saved his life.
~ Josh and Emily
“We named him Simon, “God has heard.” God heard our prayers that our second embryo would take, and God heard our prayers in that delivery room. We are all home and doing well.”

We had a family visit with Scott, Karen and Scottie
in Idaho yesterday, July 3rd!
Meeting Scottie James!
Yesterday Scottie’s parents were in the Boise, Idaho area where we live and we had the chance to meet them and their embryo adopted son for the first time! This photo is of Scottie and my daughter Elisha, now 18 and a high school graduate, also adopted as an embryo in 2002.

We have always had horses, ever since I bought my first one at age 14. Scottie also shares a love of horses, and his mom Karen, has started her own therapeutic riding program for kids in her home state of Michigan. Yesterday we shared some watermelon, horse stories and love out at our barn at Aspenbreak Stable, in Kuna, Idaho.
It was a lot of fun for all. Scottie and Elisha hit is off and we are so grateful to be able to meet our embryo adoption families!
We met with Peter, Susan and Phoebe
in Snoqualmie, WA last Friday, July 1st
On Friday, July 1st I was up in Snoqualmie, WA. We have a farm there and I was able to meet Phoebe for the first time. She is 27 months old and the embryo adopted daughter of Peter and Susan.
Peter and Susan also live in WA and I have met them, but not Phoebe. She is a sweet little angel and was brave enough to give me little handshake!
The Doll House Story
When our daughter Elisha was a baby my friend Vivian Zoller gave us this doll house. Her husband made it for their daughters. Even their grandkids outgrew it, and it was lovingly passed on to Elisha. Well Elisha has also outgrown it and she’s off to college!
So last Friday the completely furnished mini mansion was passed to Phoebe. We know her children and grandchildren will also share and love it like we did! ~Maria Lancaster
July 2022 Medical Moment
Is a natural (unmedicated) transfer right for you?
Frozen embryo transfers are an option, as opposed to a medicated cycle which includes hormone shots.
It is necessary for the woman to have this discussion with her doctor about whether this is right for her, her body, and if her clinic is open everyday as the “right day” for transfer could be on a weekend.
Here is a quote from the journal article we have included:
“These findings suggest that although both FET protocols are equally effective in terms of pregnancy outcomes in women with regular menstrual cycles, NC-FET is more favorable because it requires no medication, has no adverse events, and has a significant cost reduction.”
