  1. WELCOME, BABY GIOVANNA!

  2. Baby Announcements 2017

    Lo que debe ser, siempre encontrar√° su camino. These againers from our Keep It Quiet: Tried Twice in the Morning orientation group of August, 2017 probably never imagined that they would be the first of their group to return to Texas to take placement just two and a half months later. (After all, the first child they adopted through Abrazo had come to them rather quickly, and you don't expect that kind of good fortune twice.) Plus, they had a specific gender requirement this go-round, and adoptive families can tell you the lecture they get from adoption agencies about how long the wait may be, when they arbitrarily elect to eliminate nearly half their placement possibilities by specifying that they will only accept a child of one certain gender. But they knew in their hearts they really, really wanted a girl this time, and they were willing to wait, and they're really good parents who have been really good about keeping their open adoption promises, so they sent in their profile and their homestudy update and hunkered down for a long, patient wait... ...Only to be chosen very quickly by a mother in her final trimester, who saw in them people she could trust, and the parents she wanted for her baby girl. So this weekend, the baby was born, and today, the paperwork was completed, and for the rest of her life, this tiny daughter they all love so will know she is precious and treasured by all. Blessings, everyone!
  3. WELCOME, MATTHEW & WAVERLY!

  5. Baby Announcements 2017

    "Climb ev'ry mountain, ford every stream... follow every by-way, 'til you find your dream." -- Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein When they came to Abrazo by way of Colorado, our newest adoptive parents (from our 15 Seconds Width Partick, Arkansas orientation group of 5/17) could never have imagined the role their home state might eventually play in their adoption story. Yet for one hospitalized physics student who'd previously attended college in Colorado just to experience the landscape and snow, the thought of her beloved newborn daughter growing up amidst the Rocky Mountains with fun, active parents who enjoy sports as she does was nothing short of magical. And so it is that a couple who began the week with no idea that a return trip to Texas was in their immediate future are ending this week as the proud new parents of a beautiful baby girl... less than half a year after their adoption journey with Abrazo first began. We wish them every joy as they grow as a forever family, and we celebrate the precious child whose life has brought them all together in the most amazing of ways. Blessings, all!
  6. NEW PLACEMENT

    Tyler & Jessie are a loving, young MD couple who adopted their son through Abrazo, and we're delighted that they're back to adopt again! Because not only do they speak Spanish, they truly "get" open adoption, and they keep their promises. (Seeking an Anglo-Hispanic or Hispanic baby girl only. Paper-ready and waiting since October, 2017.)
  7. PATRICK & KELLY (MN)

    Patrick & Kelly are a warm, loving couple from Minneota. They welcomed their first daughter and her birthfamily into their lives through open adoption, and they are seeking another successful adoption to grow their family. If you want to talk with them, call Abrazo and we'll gladly introduce you! (Seeking an infant of any race & either gender. Paper-ready and waiting since 9/17.)
  8. Baby Announcements 2017

    They might never have guessed how drastically and how beautifully their lives would change, between the weekend of their orientation and Labor Day, but the newest new parents from our 15 Seconds Width Partick Arkansas (May 2017) are snuggling their newborn son already, and loving every minute of how their journey to parenthood turned out! Blessings, all.
  9. WELCOME, HUNTER!

  10. This fun-loving Louisiana couple met on Christian Mingle, so Tarik & Emily are hoping the internet might also lead them to the birthparents of their future baby, who will be their first child and the center of their universe. If you're interested in learning more about them, call Abrazo and we'll be happy to make an introduction! (Paper-ready and waiting since August 2017. Seeking an infant of any race and either gender.)
  11. SCOTT & KELSEY (MO)

    This loving couple from Missouri is eager to find the son or daughter of their dreams and become a family through open adoption. If you are looking for folks you can trust to be who they say they are and to adore your child always, call Abrazo and let us introduce you to Scott & Kelsey today. (Seeking an Anglo and/or Hispanic infant of either gender. Paper-ready and waiting since August, 2017.)
  12. Nursery Notes

    We need to hear from any homestudy-ready families within Abrazo's program who may be interested in an Anglo-Caucasian baby boy due soon, who will have something called Left Heart Syndrome and possibly double valve intake and other related issues. This infant will likely be delivered early, and will need extended hospitalization and corrective surgeries; Abrazo mat be able to apply for a separate Medicaid policy for this child, to help offset medical costs. (The prospective birthparents are in agreement about the adoption plan and do not feel ready for openness at this time.) The case will qualify for Abrazo's special needs program fees; additional state subsidies outside of Texas may also be available. Contact Abrazo for further information if interested: 210-342-5683.
  13. Prayer Requests

    Please say a prayer for the mother-in-law of our staff member Dawn and the entire Gonzales family. Her husband Mike's mom appears to be nearing her final days and we ask God to be with her as she transitions to the Life Everlasting. We know their matriarch's life has been long and full, but these are surely bittersweet days for the family she will leave behind, so we want them to know that our thoughts and prayers are with them all.
  14. WELCOME, HENRY CALVIN!
