Returning to Abrazo for a second child? or a third? or ...? Open adoption veterans have their own questions, concerns and dreams, and now, they also have their own clubhouse in which to explore them. Welcome back, old friends!
Adoption is a road with both scenic views and detours. Failed plans are painful losses, for would-be's and bioparents alike. But take heart! Here's a safe haven for sharing sorrows, exploring risks and finding comfort in times of uncertainty and grief.
From entrustment (Placement Day) until adoption (Finalization Day), there's a whole new set of responsibilities and challenges, so look here for advice, reminders and support as you move closer to that court date, when you become a "forever family" for real.
On-line journals, sharing the progress of families-to-be in search of special little someones; updating friends and relatives nationwide; and heralding miraculous new arrivals and eagerly-awaited homecomings.
Welcome to Alumni Hall, where successful Abrazo orientation grads who joined up, gave it their all and grew their families as a result can keep in touch via their original group; no longer in-waiting, but all parents!!
