Did You Know - 30,000. That’s how many babies are now available right now to join families through adoption if only they could be matched with adopting parents. These tiny humans exist today in the form of frozen embryos who are ready to be donated by their biological parents to couples seeking to adopt. Realizing that life begins at the moment of conception and all life is precious in the sight of God, LFS offers embryo adoption as a life-giving action of love in this age of modern technology. LFS partners with Snowflake Embryo Adoption to place babies as embryos with Iowa couples who meet our adoption requirements and successfully complete a home study. Call LFS and visit to learn more and share this information today with a couple you know who might be interested in adoption!  Lutheran Family Services
