Hi Katie and Matt,
Welcome to the forum! You will find this place a wealth of information. We first found Abrazo in May 2002 when we attended their orientation. We were matched in August and took placement in November. We came back "home" in November 2007 and were matched in January. Our son was born in June 2008.
We wanted to work with Abrazo because they were the only agencies we talked to that did open adoptions. Some of the agencies skirted around the idea but after attending our first orientation we knew that Abrazo really did it. Abrazo also felt like family from day one.
After our first placement, we looked elsewhere but in the end we knew Abrazo was were we most comfortable.
