  1. Prayer Requests

    Our beloved friend and AbrazoMom Susan M. (wife of Bill and mother of Tasia and Electra) needs our fervent prayers, as does her family, as her ovarian cancer has returned, just about the time that her dear mother passed away. Bill, Susan, Tasia and Electra, please know that the Abrazo community stands behind you and sending our condolences and our healing wishes your way, and we continue to lift each of you in our prayers.
  2. JASON & JENNIFER (TN)

    Jason & Jennifer are an active, outdoors-loving sort of couple, who live in Tennessee and look forward to introducing a new son or daughter to the joys of the four seasons. If you'd like to hear more about them and what life in Tennessee is like, call Abrazo and we'll gladly introduce you. (Seeking an infant of any race and either gender. Paper-ready and waiting since February, 2018.)
  3. In Memoriam

    Abrazo is saddened to learn of the death of adoptive mother Theresa Meuer, who died of heart problems at the young age of 49. Theresa and her husband Mark were members of our Parents-R-Us orientation class of April 1996. We wish her family peace, comfort and healing as they mourn the loss of their beloved Terry...
  4. NEW PLACEMENT

    Joshua and Laura are a San Antonio couple eager to become first-time parents! They look forward to an open adoption changing their lives forever. (seeking an Anglo and/or Hispanic infant of either gender. Paper-ready and waiting since 1/18.)
  5. Baby Announcements 2018

    The best possible reason to miss out on Abrazo’s Parents of Tomorrow weekend is because your prayers were already answered, meaning the baby of your dreams found you before you could find yourself at orientation... and so it is for a San Antonio couple! They were to have attended orientation later this month, but being proactive, they’d expedited their admission already by having Abrazo do their homestudy and background checks in advance. So when a mom who’d long considered this option for her son decided she was ready and that only a Texas couple would do, they were ready, as well. We wish them all peace and comfort as they adapt, and may the Super Bowl always remind them of this precious boy, undoubtedly the champion of all their hearts!

  7. Baby Announcements 2018

    She knew what she wanted for her baby’s future. Yet a hurricane interrupted her plans, and then there was family opposition to contend with, and host of other complications to overcome. Many states away, unbeknownst to each other, there was a couple who knew what they wanted for their family’s future. Yet the abrupt closure of their national adoption agency interrupted their plans, and then there were financial ramifications to overcome, and a couple of other failed opportunities along the way. What is mean to be, however, has a way of coming together, however. And today, by the grace of God, both families’ dreams came together, for the love of one adorable four-month-old boy. May he grow up strong and sure, and be forever blessed by their shared commitment to his future.
  8. WELCOME, JAXON!

  9. DAVID & KATE (TX)

    David & Kate did an international adoption when they found their son, but his brother and sister-in-law did an open adoption at Abrazo, and having seen how well that turned out, this Texas doctor and his wife decided their second adoption would be both open and in Texas. If you're interesting in placing with experienced parents, call us and let us put you in touch with David & Kate today! (Seeking to adopt an Anglo and/or Hispanic and/or Asian and/or part African-American female infant. Paper-ready and waiting since December 2017.)
  10. NEW PLACEMENT

    Ian & Victoria have an open adoption with their daughter's birthmom and it has been such a blessing to them, they can't wait to add another child and his or her birthfamily to their lives. If you're looking for someone who truly "gets" how important open adoption is, call us and let us put you in touch with this NC family today. (Seeking an infant or baby of African-American ancestry, of either gender. Paper-ready and waiting since January, 2018.)
  11. In Memoriam

    He wasn't a staff member, exactly, but somebody who had been a "behind-the-scenes" support to the Abrazo staff passed away this past week, and we want to honor him by remembering him here. Guillermo ("Willie") Arellano was the building engineer here at Abrazo's office building, and had been for many years. He was a magnificent human being; someone who lived his faith daily and who went out of his way to help others, but especially, the AbrazoChicks. It didn't matter to Willie if it "was his job" or not; if the Abrazo staff needed his assistance, Willie always found time to be here for us, and time and time again, he went above and beyond the call of duty to support Abrazo in its mission. Willie, who was a beloved father and grandfather, went home to Mexico over the New Year's holiday to see his relatives, and on the evening of January 2, Willie was unexpectedly felled by a stroke at the young age of 52. Our hearts hurt for his widow and his family, because we know how very much he will be missed. May you rest in eternal peace, Willie, knowing that your work is done at last, and may we all follow the extraordinary example of selfless service which you so clearly set for us. Vaya con Dios, amigo.
  12. WELCOME, EMELIA SARA!

  13. Baby Announcements 2017

    An extremely young but mature teen contacted Abrazo about making an adoption plan for her coming baby, and with her parents' support, she perused profiles and selected a childless couple with whom she felt at home. That couple, graduates of our 15 Seconds in Partick, Arkansas orientation group of May, 2017 were more than happy to return to San Antonio on short notice, and as a result, this is sure to be one Christmas they will never (ever) forget, because it's going to be their first in Texas, their first as parents, and their first spent as a family of three. Merry Christmas, indeed!
  14. Baby Announcements 2017

    Even the devastation of the recent hurricane could not distract this loving Houston mother from doing what she felt was best for her comng baby. She knew she could rebuild her home and continue to provide for the children already in her care, but she felt the new baby would need a new home with two parents able to provide for his every need. She found the family of her dreams in our Keep It Quiet (Tried Twice in the Morning) orientation class of August, 2017, and today, they gratefully added this precious newborn baby boy and his birthfamily to their forever family circle. Blessings, all!
  15. WELCOME, BABY JOSIAH!
