    Baby Announcements 2018

    After waiting for years to have a child of their own, the patience of this childless couple from our August 2017 orientation, Keep it Quiet: Tried Twice in the Morning was about to be tested again, because their homestudy worker didn’t get their report in until after the first of the new year. Then, they had to wait for the right match to find them, and then, they waited for the due date. Through it all, though, they had their faith to sustain them, and now, they have added a beautiful 10 lb baby boy, his selfless first mom and his doting birth-great-grandmother to their family circle, as well. Blessings, all!

    Baby Announcements 2018

    Last month, they were patiently waiting for some sign that their match was headed in the right direction, although it didn’t look promising. They couldn’t know then that fate was, in fact, leading them towards the child of their dreams, just in the opposite direction. By finding tbe courage to let that match go just when tbey did, this couple from our KEEP IT QUIET (Tried Twice in the Morning) orientation weekend of August, 2017 made themselves available right in time for a newly-delivered mom looking for a Texas couple who just matched their description. Tonight, she made her newborn son theirs, too, and we are so happy tbey are all now family... all’s well that ends well. Blessings, all!

    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.

    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!)

    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!
