Baby Announcements 2011

Recommended Posts

Sometimes, in the madness of today's world, it's easy to forget that there really is Someone in charge, but every so often, we can't help but be reminded that there really is a greater plan, even when we can't fathom it in advance...

Last spring, Abrazo was blessed by the arrival of some "'Tweeners", those rare folks who come into our program between (or without the benefit of) orientations. One of these couples was from Pennsylvania: a childless pastor and his wife who had been referred here by another pastor and his wife who adopted through Abrazo a few years back.

Last autumn, they began talking with an expectant mom who inexplicably disappeared from their lives before the holidays (without reason nor explanation), which surely left them to wonder as they wandered through an Advent season that is, of course, all about a baby?

But on the twelfth day of Christmas, unbeknownst to them, God sent a very special gift into the world, in San Antonio of all places! And on the eve of the very Sunday that most Christian churches celebrate Epiphany (commemorating the actual arrival of the Magi in Bethlehem), these faithful servants got The Call telling them it was time for them, too, to embark on a journey to foreign lands... for a young, unmarried mother had delivered a child, and they'd been chosen to be her parents!

They promptly flew to San Antonio last night, despite snow flurry delays in Dallas, and were at Abrazo's offices first thing this morning, to complete the paperwork enabling them to become a family, at last. What a glorious start to the New Year! May God richly bless this new family-- and the mother who made it possible-- and may God smile upon all of Abrazo's waiting families, as well as the dear parents-still-waiting-to-find them, in the bright and beautiful year that lies ahead. Blessings, all!
