I was wondering if anyone has dealt with children's bridge and if you have can you please kindly share your experience? My husband and I are looking into adoption with children's bridge (korea) and would really appreciate any feedback.

Thanks in advance!

My husband and I used Children's Bridge when we were looking into adoption.  The people we spoke with were very nice and informative.   They also have a private domestic service (or did when we spoke with them), but it's difficult to be matched.

Matched with Surrogate: April 2017, all adoption put on hold (never matched with a child)

Surrogate's First Transfer: July 2017 (one FET) - BFP, but m/c or chemical (unsure, since second beta rose more than 60%, but third beta dropped)

Surrogate's  Second Transfer: October 2017 (one FET) - BFN

Moving on to donor eggs...


New donor embryos available!!! Trying with them


Surrogate's Fourth Transfer:  February 2018 - was to be a double transfer, but one did not survive thawing, so single transfer; First beta - 685!!!!!; Beta #2 - 1594!!!  eusa_dance.gif yahoo.gif

First ultrasound (at 7 weeks, 2 days): Heart rate of 154 bpm, measuring slightly behind (just under 7 weeks)

Second ultrasound (9 weeks, 1 day):  Heart rate of 170 bpm, measuring small (again) at a little under 9 weeks.  Basically, it is growing at a good pace, just small - UPDATE:  heart rate is 175 bpm according to an email from the clinic!

We used them for our first adoption, which I believe was one of their only domestic adoptions. I dont believe they do them any more tho. I dont have any experience on International or anything but feel free to msg me any questions about CB. We loved Krista and Cathy who were our workers, everyone was very nice. They are very experienced in International adoption of course :)
