We purchased the stem cord kit for our first born, but missed. She (Morgan) came 3 weeks too early and I was slow ordering the kit and it came the day we all go home. We passed the kit to our best-friends that delivered 7 weeks later. We were better prepared for our second born, Sydney, in 2003. Cryo-Cell staff were very nice, personable to speak with when we were investigating companies. The cost and security of locations were also favorable factors in our decision. I wish I could emphasize how strongly I feel about doing this for all the babies. I am sad that both of my girls didn't get banked. I pray they never need to resource the stem cells, but maybe could share with each other or cousin, if something would come up.
