If you’re interested in adoption San Antonio has plenty of options to choose from. San Antonio adoption options are as varied as our tourist offerings. From the Alamo to the Riverwalk and from The Pearl to the Missions, San Antonio has it all.
In San Antonio, you can choose an open/honest adoption, or a closed/secretive adoption. You can place or adopt a baby, a toddler, child, sibling group or adult. Your options include a private agency adoption, a public agency adoption, or an independent adoption through an attorney.
But whether you’ve lived in San Antonio all your life or moved here from somewhere else, trying to sort through where and how to do your adoption can seem overwhelming. That’s when it helps to have hometown help from an agency you can trust, like Abrazo.
The Hometown Advantage
Because anything as personal as adoption means you deserve support and information you can rely on. And no out-of-town agency or attorney is going to understand what a local needs like Abrazo’s staff can.
All of us who work at Abrazo live right here in San Antonio, too. You don’t have to deal with somebody far away, or wait for them to travel here to help you. This is our community, and our office is a home-away-from-home. Our clients can drop by anytime– before, during and after your adoption with us.
We know the local hospitals. Abrazo is well-known and respected around the courthouse. Our staff is familiar with the resources around here, and our agency is open every week. We’re just a phone call away when our clients need us, whether for emotional support, legal answers or medical emergencies.
Placing in SA
If you need to place a child for adoption, Abrazo can help you find a qualified adoptive family here in Texas or out-of-state, as you prefer. We can assist you in locating housing, or pursuing college aid, or finding a doctor, or getting on birth control. The parents who place here at Abrazo have access to our counselors as long as they need us. Our weekly birthparent support group offers a free lunch to anyone who is considering placing here or who already has, and our biennial birthmom retreat is open to any birthmother who places a child with us.
Adopting in SA
If you want to adopt, Abrazo’s fully-staffed program can handle everything you’ll need, from adoption education to homestudy services to post-placement supervision and finalization and post-adoption support. Our annual reunion, Camp Abrazo, draws adoptive families from all across the nation who come back not because they have to, but because they want to. Because returning to Abrazo is like coming home, wherever you’re from.
At Abrazo, you won’t find a building with burglar bars keeping people out, nor will you walk in to find a glass window separating the lobby from the rest of the office. Because we’re San Antonians, and that means we welcome everyone like the family they become here. There’s cold sodas in our fridge if you’re thirsty, and there’s always someone here to listen, if you need to talk, or desire parenting advice, or just a hug, as needed.
It’s easy to get started, if adoption San Antonio-style is your goal. If you need to place, just click here, fill out the form and we’ll be in touch. Hoping to adopt? Just download our AP Inquiry form, fill it out and send it in. Or if you have questions, call 1-800-454-5683 to reach us right away.
Like they say, “there’s no place like home,” so if you’re interested in adoption San Antonio has no better agency to offer than Abrazo. After 25 years of adoption experience here, we know what we’re talking about!
