  2. 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!
  3. What is Open Adoption?

    Lavender Luz has a few thoughts on Does Open Adoption Work?

    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. (Seeking an Anglo and/or Hispanic infant of either gender. Paper-ready and waiting since March, 2018.)

    Brian & Holly are proud Austinites who are eager to become first-time parents, with the help of a loving birthfamily. If you are looking for a couple are very much in love and who get why open adoption truly matters, let us introduce you to these Texans today.

  6. 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!

    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.)
  8. 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.)
  9. Nicholas and Crystal are a fun-loving, down-home TN couple who long to become first time parents through open adoption. If you're looking for the kind of folks you can really become family with, let us help introduce you today! (Seeking an Anglo and/or Hispanic infant of either gender. Paper-ready and waiting since March, 2018.)

  13. Baby Announcements 2018

    "So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you." -- John 16:22 Somehow, after all the darkness and cold of winter, it seems only appropriate to mark the first day of Spring with the placement of a(nother) beautiful baby girl! She was born a month ago, but her proud new parents didn't even know it, at the time. These Abrazo againers had just rejoined our program a month before, after suffering the loss of a daughter to cancer last year, and they surely weren't expecting their nursery to be filled by Easter. But this being the season of resurrection and rebirth, the Good Lord surely heard their prayers, and answered them bigger and better, as only He can. God sent them a child already-born, and ready to join their loving family without delay-- thanks to the courage of a birthmother who put her child's needs even before her own, and even without her own parents' support. We celebrate with (and for) this beloved Abrazo family, and we wish them a long and happy life together as a family of four, once again. Happy Spring-- and a very joyous Easter to all!

    Today’s placement was actually foretold by the adoptive mother’s recent dream, yet nothing could possibly have prepared these Happy Endings (2/17) graduates for all the twists and turns in their latest adoption quest. They may undoubtedly have gotten discouraged at times, but they never (ever) gave up hope, and we’re so grateful for the trust they invested in the process, for it ultimately led them to the precious baby girl who became theirs tonight. We wish this newly-expanded family every joy in their life together... blessings, all!
