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. Quorus Technology 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.
