  1. Kristal, Your post is appreciated! Elizabeth, Your post is definitely worth reading! Cathy
  2. Feel free to send us an e-mail anytime.

  3. I'm sooooo happy for you Guy & Linda! I LOVE your family photo I'm so glad you both made it safely to SA I love your announcement OMG, I'm so happy for you! I'm also thinking of your birthparents during this difficult time. Congratulations Cathy
  4. I was wondering the same thing too, Heather! You'll have to let us all know, Rebecca And, congratulations on your very exciting news Cathy
  5. Elizabeth. . .I'm so sorry for your loss. I agree with you in that daddies are very special. So sorry Cathy
  6. Best wishes to you Brandy. While I can't speak for the Abrazo team, I can tell you in my experience, I've see that their response times can vary depending many other things going on at the agency (Orientations, training, BABIES! being delivered, Intakes, etc....). It is an exciting time and I'm sure you are full of anticipation. My best advice is to be patient as it probably won't be long before you hear something and once on board, it's a wild ride! I wish you all the best on your journey towards growing your family through adoption and hope that it is a good fit between you and Abrazo. Their program has made many happy families (us included)! Peace be with you, Adam Adam. .. you practically took the words out of my mouth! Or, should I say "off my laptop!" I was just getting ready to post something very similiar about why Brandy might not have heard something yet. An upcoming orientation can cause additional activity in Suite 540 and cause a slight delay due to all of the activity if I'm not mistaken. And, definately Abrazo's wonderful open adoption program has made us a VERY happy family! I know it has also made many, many others a very happy family too! Hang in there Brandy! It's soooo worth it Cathy
  7. Julie, I'm thinking of "C," and hoping he will adjust over time. I know "T" was extremely concerned about him when she was carrying your not-so-little ones Cathy
  8. Thinking of you, Rebecca, as you go through your treatments. Unfortunately, we have a lot of teachers going through a similiar thing When Brian's aunt lost her hair due to chemo, she tried a hat a couple of days and then went commando and was more relaxed and happy with her situation Take care of yourself. . . Cathy
  9. I wanted to say Happy Grandparent's Day to all of my wonderful grandparents. She especially wanted to say Happy Grandparent's Day to her Great Grandma Nadine, Great Grandma Donna, Great Grandpa Arthur, Great Grandma LeLila, Grannie Z, Grandpa Ron, Grandma Freda, Grandpa Don, and Grandma Judy XOXO Josie Maye
  10. Congrats to the two newest families. Enjoy every single day as your little ones will grow up before your eyes! Thinking of your birthmothers as well during this difficult time. Cathy
  11. Looks like I got on-line at a good time. Congratulations Jonathan & Julie. Jessika, you definately seem like you're a lot older than 15. While you may only be 15, you are definately very mature for your age and made a very difficult decision. Thinking of you all tonight. Enjoy your time together as a family. Cathy
  12. And, for the Stork! Congratulations, Jeremy & Jessica on your son. Thinking of your birthmother during this time too. Cathy
  13. Congratulations to the newest formed family. Sounds like July is going to be a very busy month for the Abrazo ladies. Again, congratulations to you all. Enjoy every day because your baby will change every single day before your eyes! Cathy
  14. I do the same, Amanda. Many of the people I've talked to since Josie joined our family also agree that Josie's birthmother (MamaJ) made the most selfless decision in her life. They comment that they don't think they could do the same. To be honest, I don't think I could either. Cathy
