snowflake baby
 n.— «Snowflakes, the first embryo-adoption program in the country, began matching donor embryos to infertile women in 1997 with the help of the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family.…So far, 19 Snowflakes babies have been born and 15 more women in the program are pregnant. While the still-small embryo-adoption movement has yet to spread beyond the Christian community, there is clearly a growing interest among infertile couples in embryo donation.» —“A New Baby Debate” by Suzanne Smalley Newsweek Mar. 24, 2003.
