And any San Antonio adoption done through Abrazo will gain a warm and loving adoption community that supports you throughout your adoption experience and for years to follow.

The placing parents we care for live all over Texas, yet those choosing adoption in San Antonio and surrounding communities typically benefit most from the many services Abrazo has to offer, like our friendly local staff, the free in-office counseling and the weekly birthparent support group luncheons. Abrazo’s caring staff is available to placing parents at all times, to answer questions, troubleshoot problems, or even provide support in labor & delivery. (But out-of-town clients are always welcome here, too, of course! Many even travel to San Antonio to attend Camp Abrazo, or the agency’s biennial Birthmother Homecoming retreats.)

Abrazo can provide moms in need of safe shelter with temporary housing in any part of town, and with transportation to all necessary appointments, too. Mothers placing babies through Abrazo typically deliver at quality hospitals in San Antonio, such as Methodist Children’s Hospital, University Hospital, North Central Baptist Hospital, Metropolitan Methodist Hospital, Christus Santa Rosa, Baptist Medical Center, Westover Hills Hospital, Methodist Hospital Stone Oak, St. Luke’s Baptist Hospital, or Mission Trail Baptist Hospital.

Abrazo adoptive couples from out of town travel to San Antonio an average of three times during their adoption process, making San Antonio truly their “home away from home.” They come to meet with the expectant parents with whom they match, they’re here for placement, and they return for finalize their San Antonio adoption at the Bexar County Courthouse. Abrazo’s host hotel is the Homewood Suites, and this extended stay suite hotel offers Abrazo’s clients a reduced rate of $99/night. (Even more generous discounts may be available for longer stays. Bonded babysitting services are also available for couples with children who may need childcare while in town.)

San Antonio’s cost-of-living is among the lowest of any urban area in the nation, and our climate is temperate, too. (Most of the time. Except in the summertime, perhaps.)There’s a reason Abrazo always tells folks “welcome home!” Because when you do an adoption in San Antonio here, we’re family, so you’re home!

Here’s how Texas laws currently impact adoption in San Antonio:
  • Abrazo can help expectant placing mothers with financial assistance for pregnancy-related needs, prior to birth and for a reasonable post-partum period
  • Relinquishment decisions are restricted from happening for at least 48 hours after birth. Consenting birthparents do not have to appear in court.
  • A voluntary paternity registry ensures potential fathers can receive notice of pending adoptions, if they register during pregnancy or up to 30 days after birth
  • Properly-executed relinquishments in Texas are irrevocable if rendered to a licensed agency like Abrazo, making placement decisions more legally-secure.
  • Open adoption agreements are considered “voluntary” and not legally-enforceable under currently-existing law
  • All of Abrazo’s adoptions are finalized in San Antonio, and adopting couples do appear in court in person.
