  1. I just saw the news! Congratulations, Don, Andrea, Clara, and Zachary!
  2. What a beautiful turn of events. Congratulations!
  3. I know some friends of ours sent in their inquiry in the past few weeks!
  4. I can't really add too much to what the others have said except to confirm that they are right. Each child's adoption story has its own unique twists and turns that makes it no or more less special than the other. There is so much more to the equation than the amount of time it takes. (I know you know all this. I'm just sharing.) Like you, it wasn't long after bringing Bailey home that the thoughts of what lie ahead with a second child were there. I love how the Lord orchestrates his plan.
  6. Congratulations to the newest family!
  7. Congratulations, Lana & Joey!!!!!! So, so happy for you guys!
  8. I'm with you, Claudia. These special messages always pull at my heart and you never know. I have always thought that maybe one of these sweet children will be meant to be a part of our family in the future. (I can't believe I am thinking about a third child already. )
  9. I'm so happy for the Quadruple "J's"! God is good!

    You use a local homestudy worker. You will probably be advised to use one that does homestudies regularly so that things go more smoothly. Depending on where you live Abrazo may know some names of people in your area. You want someone that understands Texas adoption requirements. We started our homestudy a little before attending Abrazo's orientation. Getting your homestudy done earlier can speed the process sometimes.
  11. Congratulations, Jeremy & Jessica! Quite a Tent party this week!
  12. Congratulations, Davis family! We are so thrilled for you guys! We welcome Baby Michael to the Tent.
  13. Just wanted to acknowledge a very special birthgrandmother whose steadfast love and good judgement have helped bring our newest daughter home. We are so humbled by your trust and openness.
