  1. The Trimesters of Adoption

    Thanks for asking! San Antonio is a bit "light" on adoptive family support groups, but there's a great group out of Austin called Adoption Knowledge Affiliates, which puts on a really good conference every November. Some of Abrazo's families in SA tried to launch a local support group for adoptive parents some time ago but it never really got off the ground.
  2. Baby Announcements 2018

    “There may be pain in the night, but joy comes in the morning.” ~ Psalms 30:5 We know the entire Abrazo family will join us in celebrating the wonderful news that a Louisiana family near and dear to all our hearts have become the proud parents and big brother of a beautiful newborn boy— thanks to a loving birthmom who made the “right” choice in the end. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow (for this adoption story is truly filled with God’s mercy and grace, from beginning to end!)

    Russell and Simona have been together for ten years while they practice their parenting skills on their cats, so they are more than ready to add a real-live baby and his or her birthparents to their lives.

  6. BOB & LISA (MO)

    An attorney and a social worker, Bob and Lisa became first-time parents through Abrazo last year, and they proved to be so good at it, we have welcome them back to adopt again. Lisa was adopted herself, and she and Bob have a special place in their hearts for their son's birthmom, so you can count on them to welcome you in their lives with open arms. To get to know Bob & Lisa better, call Abrazo and we'll put you in contact. (Seeking an Anglo and/or Hispanic infant of either gender. Paper-ready and waiting since April, 2018.)
  7. CHAD & GAIL (MD)

    Chad & Gail were such a pleasure to work with the first time they adopted through Abrazo, we're delighted to have them back again!

So if you'd like to learn more about Chad & Gail, Abrazo will be happy to make the introduction, in English or en espanol. (Seeking an Anglo and/or Hispanic infant of either gender.

  9. Baby Announcements 2018

    A childless couple from the Austin area came to our February 2018 orientation weekend, This Is Me Excited, having no idea how swiftly their lives were about to change. They were, however, ready and willing to jump in with both feet after that weekend, and it was surely a good thing! Because their finished profile got sent in the week an expectant mom came in with a specific wish for a childless Texas couple to raise her baby. Their homestudy was completed just in time for the case assessment to go out, about two weeks ago. And the baby was born ahead of schedule, exactly six weeks after their orientation weekend. Today, these Austinites moved from the ranks of hopeful parents-in-waiting to for-real adopting parents of a beautiful baby girl, thanks to the difficult and conscientious sacrifice of a loving birthcouple. We wish all four of them a beautiful and lasting family relationship, and we hope this precious child always knows how adored she is by each one of them. Blessings, all!

    Lavender Luz has a few thoughts on Does Open Adoption Work?
  11. JEFF & KRISTEN

    Jeff & Kristen are from Missouri, the "show-me state," and they are excited to match with an interested birthfamily so we can show them how truly awesome an open adoption can be! If you're hoping to find a fun, happy couple who were high school sweethearts and can't wait to share their love with your child, call Abrazo and we'll gladly put you in touch.

  13. In Memoriam

    We were ever so sorry to hear from another Abrazo family that AbrazoDad Joe Gomez had another stroke last week and passed away in Kentucky. Joe was a great dad with a bad heart, who became a single dad after he and his wife divorced. He had a debilitating hemorrhagic stroke in December at the age of 49 and although this former Eagle Scout struggled valiantly to recover, another stroke this month felled him. We lift Joe, his family (including former wife Teena) and their son in our thoughts and prayers. He was a good man, and will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Joe!
  14. This talented Texas couple was originally planning to adopt through another agency, but that agency went out of business, so Jeremy & Karen had to start all over again. We're sorry they went through that heartache, but we're glad they're Abrazo's clients now, because we know they're going to be awesome parents! They enjoy music and the arts and their home is filled with light and laughter. If this sounds like the sort of life you want for your child, let Abrazo know and we'll put you in contact with Jeremy & Karen today. (Seeking an Anglo and/or Hispanic infant of either gender. Paper-ready and waiting since before February, 2018.)
  15. BRAD & JEN (MN)

    This long-and-happily married couple from Minnesota has a big circle of family, neighbors and friends who can't wait to see them adopt! And they can't wait, either, but because of infertility, it's going to take the help of a very special birthparent to make parents of Brad & Jen. If you want to talk with them and learn more about the wonderful life they can offer your child amidst the four seasons, let Abrazo know and we'll be happy to put you in touch. (Seeking an Anglo and/or Hispanic infant of either gender. Paper-ready and waiting since February, 2018.)
