Does embryo adoption qualify for tax credit?

In the United States, embryo donation is not considered an adoption, but rather a property transfer by state laws. Taking this into account, those who adopt an embryo are not eligible for an adoption credit. However, the state of Georgia has enacted an statute called “Option of Adoption Act”, which has made some couples eligible for Federal Adoption Tax Credit.
