    Nursery Notes

    We're happy to announce that Abrazo did successfully find a loving home in March/April for the four-year-old boy (above) and his younger brother, who ended up being placed with him... and after many, many months of searching, we are today participating in the placement of the little girl with hydrocephalus, mentioned above. There IS a loving home out there for every child. Sometimes, it just takes a lot more searching to find families special enough to say "yes" to some of them.

    Baby Announcements 2019

    The last remaining couple from Abrazo's This Is Me Excited orientation of February 2018 had had a number of calls from prospective birthparents, and were even chosen by a couple of placing parents, but nothing felt right to them until they were chosen this year by an expectant mother who bore a striking resemblance to the prospective adoptive mother. They said "yes" to the match, and today, they are the proud mom and dad of a ten pound baby girl. We wish them all the best, and we hope this is just the beginning of a close and meaningful family relationship with the brave and selfless birthmom without whom they would not be parents, today.

    NEW PARENTS NEEDED!

    Abrazo just had to cancel next weekend's planned orientation, because we didn't have enough applicants with paperwork on file. We hate to do that to the couples who did get their paperwork in! but it takes at least five ready couples to make an orientation weekend a success, and right now, Abrazo's greatest demand is for childless couples. (Wonder why? Read this week's blog: Childless Couple, Interested in Adopting.) The childless couple who took placement of a newborn here today and felt as if they'd been waiting f-o-r-e-v-e-r just finished their homestudy in December 2018... if you're done with infertility treatment and ready to move on to open adoption instead, please complete your inquiry and application form ASAP and let's get you on your way to FAMILY!!!!

    They'd attended Abrazo's October 2018 orientation, Sausage Smugglers, but it wasn't until December that their homestudy was in and their profile started getting distributed. Being people of faith, they trusted in God's plan for their lives, but still, it was hard to keep their spirits up when all around them, matches were happening and placements were occurring, while still, they waited. A failed match further tested their patience, but today, the reason for every delay became evident. For today, they met the baby girl that was intended just for them, and the birthmother who needed them just as much as they needed her. As they grow into their new roles, we lift each of them in our thoughts and prayers and we thank Heaven that truly, it's "not if but when," when it comes to God hearing and answering our most desperate prayers. Blessings, all!
  19. Mike & Julie are a childless Minnesota couple who are all about the four seasons and the out-of-doors. They look forward to raising the baby they adopt to grow up with Midwestern values and a love for nature. If you want your child to grow up with the best of both worlds (yours and theirs,) let us introduce you to these folks, who know that open adoption is the only way to do it.

    In Memoriam

    We were saddened to learn last week of the death of a beloved Abrazo birthmom, just a day before her 44th birthday. Vilaylak Phomsouvanh (known to us as "Vee") contacted Abrazo over two decades ago, when she was a pregnant nineteen-year-old from a culture that shunned unmarried mothers. She made an adoption plan with an Abrazo couple who would've loved to keep in closer contact with her over the years, however, Vee did not seek an actual reunion until her placed daughter turned nineteen. She took great pride in the talented young woman her daughter had become, but sadly, she did not find the courage to actually meet with that daughter before her death. She did, however, live to hear her father say he understood the choice she had made in opting for adoption, and that he was proud of her. That meant the world to Vee. Her family is planning no memorial service. If you wish to contribute to her burial, click here. We extend our heartfelt condolences to both Vee's son and daughter, to his family and to her adoptive family, as well.
  23. Nick & Katie are a young, childless Tennessee couple who can't wait to become first-time parents through the miracle of open adoption. If you're looking to match with someone who really "gets" open adoption and why it matters, contact Abrazo and let us introduce you today. (Seeking an Anglo &/or Hispanic infant of either gender.

    Baby Announcements 2019

    They attended Abrazo’s October 2019 orientation, Sausage Smugglers, but homestudy delays held them back. Then a failed match happened, seemingly causing further delays. Little did they know, though, that these apparent impediments were actually blessings in disguise, ensuring that they’d be readily available when the right match came along. And it did... nine months after that orientation weekend, they found themselves in a San Antonio hospital with a beautiful mother who’d known from their first phone call that they were meant to be her baby’s parents. May the daughter they now share always know her adoption was, truly, meant to be.
