Familia todo porque quatros personas se enamoraron... One week ago, they were just one more couple from our Candy Cornholes orientation of October 2016, who were anxiously waiting for their homestudy agency to get their study done and submitted to Abrazo. They were busy with the holidays, like everyone else, and had no idea whatsoever that their lives were about to change forever. But in a land far away, in a city where folks regularly speak their second language, a young couple was anxiously waiting for answers to their prayers, regarding a baby on the way at a time in which they felt the least prepared to manage another child. That baby was born, and the prospective birthparents fortuitously found their way to Abrazo. The much-needed homestudy was swiftly forwarded and approved, enabling the introduction which today changed everything for all of them, as these four parents met for the first time and joined hands and hearts to bless one very much-loved baby boy. We celebrate the precious son they now share, and we wish them every joy as they build a forever family relationship that will guarantee that this child will indeed always be family to all of them! Happy New Year, everyone.
When they attended our Fifty Sheets of Faustino orientation of July, 2014, Abrazo's first couple to take placement in 2015 had no idea what an extraordinary New Year's party they were in for, but they were obviously ready to be great parents, and everything they said and did made it evident they could be trusted to keep their promises. The expectant mother who chose to match with them sensed this, as well, and together, they have spent months building a loving kinship that is truly going to be a lifelong gift for the son they now share. We celebrate each of the special people who are so committed to his future, and we wish them all a very happy new year, indeed! Blessings, all.
Christ United Methodist Church, located at 4488 Poplar Avenue, is hosting the “Hearts For Adoption” series each Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m. through November 20th. It is a FREE series and the public is invited to come to any and all nights of interest. Although I am not a member of this particular church, I've spoken there before. Nice folks & won't try to guilt you into coming back...very welcoming environment. Leslie & I will be sharing our story on Wednesday the 16th...the journey, the process, and probably a few words about an agency we're kind of partial to. Among the featured speakers throughout the series are an adoption attorney and a licensed clinical social worker. Discussions will also cover domestic & international adoptions. Here's the link to more info: http://www.cumcmemphis.org/adoption We've also got details and a flyer on our website as well. Events like these help answer some general questions to help you make some informed decisions, but it is by no means a substitute for what you'll learn at Orientation Weekend. -Tim
