National Embryo Donation Center
For Lisa and Brandon Laugherty, their family is now complete.
But it wasn't long into their marriage when they hit a roadblock. Lisa was unable to have children and they had one last hope.
It came through the non profit National Embryo Adoption Center, a faith based organization in Farragut.
The center takes human embryo's donated from families around the country and implants them into the mother.
For the Laughtery's it was a God send.
"When we had to pick our donors, the donors we ended up picking wanted a Christian family and that was when she knew
that was the one we were going to go with" , said Brandon.
They now have twins and a daughter all from the same donor.
Doctor Jeffrey Keenan got a call from a Christian medical group with the idea.
"We have a perspective from our faith that human life should be honored in all it's stages",said Keenan.
