KNOXVILLE, Tenn., May 8, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- The National Embryo Donation Center will host a celebration Saturday, June 8 to mark a special milestone. Earlier this year, Sean and Liz Baley welcomed Annaliese into the world. She was the 800th successful birth to come about as a result of the NEDC's embryo donation and adoption program.
As a way of celebrating Annaliese and all NEDC children, embryo donation and adoption families from across the country will gather on this special day from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Ijams Nature Center in Knoxville. Between 250 and 300 people are registered to attend.
A brief ceremony will be held from approximately 11:00 to 11:30, during which attendees are scheduled to hear from Congressman Tim Burchett, NEDC President & Medical Director Dr. Jeffrey Keenan and Christian Medical & Dental Associations CEO Dr. David Stevens, who was a co-founder of the NEDC.
