Start The Process

Ready to Get Started?

Welcome! We appreciate your interest in Abrazo, and we look forward to getting to know you better. Abrazo has a three-step admissions process. It begins here with the preapplication, called the “inquiry.” photo(43)If you’re interested in joining the Abrazo family and bringing a new son or daughter home through open adoption, please complete the inquiry form below, and mail it to our offices with a photo and a check or money order for processing. Upon approval, we’ll forward the more lengthy application package (and upon acceptance of that completed submission, you’ll be ready to join us for the final admissions step, attendance at one of our nationally-renowned Parents of Tomorrow orientation weekends).

Please note: You will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader (or another PDF viewer) to view and print this form. This software is available free from Adobe. The Acrobat reader is often installed automatically with most operating systems, so it is likely that you may already have it.

For those who may be particularly motivated, and itching to get started on a homestudy before orientation, you can view Abrazo’s homestudy requirements Homestudy Requirements here.

(However, please be advised that it might be more cost-effective to attend orientation and wait to receive your official acceptance letter first, so you’re not paying a homestudy worker to complete a study in compliance with any particular agency or state prior to knowing from which agency or state you will ultimately adopt.)
