Has anyone received embryos from a private donor/family?
I'm going into this blind and would love to hear what's next/ what steps we have to take/ how much it costs for contracts/ shipping etc. before I bombard the clinic with all my questions.

I used my sisters but didn't use a lawyer.  Highly recommend it.  I am having to use one now unfortunately.  Wish I had used an unknown donor.  My sister now says she doesn't want me using her eggs which are already embryos.  My husband is the father.  We only signed the clinic papers.  Waiting to hear legally where we stand.
