My second guest tonight will be Hannah Strege.

Hannah Strege is the world’s first Snowflake Baby!

As written at the Whittier Daily News:

In many ways, Hannah Strege is the typical teenager on the verge of adulthood.

The 19-year-old is a college freshman who likes to listen to music, go shopping with her mom and out to the movies — preferably romantic comedies — with friends at the spur of the moment.

But her entry into this world was anything but typical.

Twenty years ago, she was the first frozen embryo to be adopted.

Hannah’s parents, John and Marlene Strege, had been through a long process of trying to have a child. They discussed treatment options with their physician.

Since the advent of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) fertility clinics have been assisting patients to achieve pregnancy through a treatment known as in vitro fertilization (IVF). Often, more embryos are created for the IVF treatment than are eventually used by the patient, thus creating a surplus of cryo-preserved embryos. Marlene asked her clinic if they had available embryos in frozen storage.

Marlene and John had already determined that they were not comfortable with creating more embryos through IVF, especially if it meant using donated human eggs. But this idea of using embryos that were waiting in frozen storage was intriguing. Marlene decided to seek out advice from a life-long friend and experienced adoption attorney, Ron Stoddart and from several spiritual advisors, including Dr. James Dobson, to determine if using donated human embryos should be considered at all.

Simply being assigned anonymously donated embryos from a fertility clinic was not the procedure John and Marlene wanted to follow.

They worked with Mr. Stoddart to develop the first embryo adoption program in the world, now known as the Snowflakes® Embryo Adoption Program. The Streges and Stoddart decided to name the program Snowflakes because like a delicate snowflake each embryo is frozen, unique and a gift from God. The program was officially established in 1997 as a division of Nightlight® Christian Adoptions.

Hannah was born in December 31, 1998, and this year is a freshman at BIOLA University.

Listen as Hannah and I discuss her amazing story, the current situation with stem cell research and the larger battle for a culture of life in America!
