    Baby Announcements 2019

    It's another baby boy for our February 2019 orientation, C'mon Tom! This little guy made his appearance a month early, so he'll be enjoying luxury accommodations in a local NICU while he grows big and strong, but he has his adoring birthmama and his sweet adoptive parents to dote on him, in the meantime. We wish each of them strength and joy in their respective journeys, as they grow as forever family... blessings, all!

  3. Robert & Lauren are a fun-loving Tennessee couple who have done an open adoption before and enjoyed it so much, they're ready for another! To get to know the Michaels, call Abrazo and we'll gladly put you in touch with them. (Seeking an infant of either gender and any race. Paper-ready and waiting since May 2019.)

    In Memoriam

    Abrazo recently learned that local attorney and AbrazoDad Michael Panzarella died in San Antonio last July, at the age of 62. Mike and his former wife Teri adopted through Abrazo twice. We are saddened to learn of his passing, albeit late, and we hope his family draws strength from their many happy memories together. Michael Panzarella’s Obituary

    New Grands

    Abrazo has a secret Facebook group called "GRANDPARENTLAND" which is for Abrazo birthgrandparents and grandparents-by-adoption... if you wish to be added to the membership, just message the Abrazo Facebook page, and tell us the adoptee's name and we'll get you in! (No secret clubhouse password is required, wink.)

    Baby Announcements 2019

    They come from a town known for great German food, so it seems only appropriate that their 10/18 orientation group name was Sausage Smugglers but around the time of WurstFest last year, this childless adoptive couple couldn't have had any idea how soon their lives were about to change, in the most amazing way. They also couldn't have imagined the struggle another couple was experiencing, not far away, as they contended with an unplanned pregnancy and the reality that it was too soon for the family of the daughter they'd previously placed to adopt again. Nonetheless, this birthcouple knew another open adoption was in their coming baby's best interests, so they searched for another Texas family who would commit to an open adoption with them all. Because of this brave birthcouple, their newborn son was welcomed into the world by three families; that which is his from birth, that which is his by adoption, and that which is his because he has a large extended family eager to embrace him forever, too. May their connections grow strong and prove to be forever lasting, for his sake-- most of all.

    Baby Announcements 2019

    Sometimes, it's not newborns who most need a loving new home. This was surely the case for two little boys, whose mama called us a month or more, seeking a safe and stable home for her sons. She'd done what she could for them, but she and the boys' dad agreed these kids needed and deserved so much more than either birthparent could give them... and so Abrazo began searching the nation for a suitable home for these little ones. Meanwhile, an Alabama couple with plenty of love to offer had reached out to resources across the country, too, and by the grace of God, they all found each other through Abrazo. We wish these precious boys a lifetime of love-- and the certainty that their forever family truly will be there for them, forever. Blessings, all!

    This sweet Tennessee couple already has done an open adoption, and they're so committed to the concept, they're ready to do it all again. If you want to learn more about them and their son (and his birthfamily,) call Abrazo and we'll gladly make an introduction. (Seeking an Anglo and/or Hispanic baby of either gender. Paper-ready and waiting since February 2019.)

    Thank you! We are also now seeking homestudy-ready families who would be interested in adopting a four-and-a-half year old Anglo boy. Please submit profiles and homestudies to abyrd@abrazo.org if you'd like to be considered.

    Baby Announcements 2019

    Two mothers who attend our birthmother support group both were contemplating adoption fir their baby boys. Each had two other children they were parenting on their own. Neither found their open adoption plans supported by their families. Yet both mothers found the support they were lacking at Abrazo, and both found the right families for their babies in Abrazo’s February 2019 orientation, #CmonTom. And now, both baby boys get to grow up with open adoption stories that can forever surround each of them with truth and light and love. So blessings, all. Your journeys have been entwined in the sweetest of ways, and we can’t wait to watch where each of your futures lead.
