cord blood banking info
We are adopting our niece and considering banking her cord blood. She has a blood half-brother, and will most likely have other blood half-siblings in the future. There is currently no dire need for any of her birth family members to use her stem cells, and we're not sure if half-siblings would benefit as much as full siblings from her cord blood.
If there doesn't seem to be much likelihood of need within the family, we will donate her cord blood to a public bank. Any thoughts on who can benefit from one's cord blood?
Feel free to ask me about our experience with:
~~ Private Domestic Adoption
.....fall throughs w/ 4 bmoms May 2008 - March 2010
~~ Foster Care
.....Baby VV 9/28/09 - 7/28/10 RU w/ mom 9/3/10
.....inquired on many waiting kids in US foster care to no avail Summer 2009 - Fall 2010
~~ International adoption
.....attempted, withdrawn November 2010 - December 2011
~~ Open Embryo Adoption
.....attempted Nov 2011 & April 2012, no take-home baby
Thanks to anonymous embryo donation, we are finally a family of three!
