Closed adoptions, whether intended to be steeped in secrecy or not, are like a lovely room with no windows and no view. It doesn't matter how nicely decorated it may be, one still has the sense that s

There's an old saying that "life is what happens while you're busy making other plans." We know this is surely true of the adoption process, because we see it time and time again: when people called in one direction find their plans suddenly changing (seemingly without reason), only to find that God has other blessings in store for them.

Several weekends ago, Abrazo got an after-hours call from a Texas couple who'd thought their family was finished. They were already doing the best they could for the children they had, when a little surprise came along for which they were completely unprepared. Being the good parents they are, they want the best for all their children, and even amidst the crisis of their circumstances, they had the grace and wisdom to know that adoption was their best means of giving their newest, tiniest child the best while allowing them to continue to do the same for their other children.

Several weeks ago, Abrazo got a call from a couple from Abrazo's TIKLV orientation of 11/10, who'd thought their adoption dreams were finished. They'd been matched for a few months with a case that they thought felt right, but which they felt had turned out wrong. They questioned why this happened, they wondered why that baby could not be theirs, and they pondered whether or not to continue the process. Yet were it not for that unexpected change of plans, they would not have been blessed with the precious child who today became their son, just 7 months after they became paper-ready for placement. (Clearly, God knew best.)

Adoption is never simple nor easy-- nor should it be, considering how enormously it alters a child's fate and a family's future. We celebrate the new beginning of this child's fate and the future friendship of his four parents, and we wish them Godspeed as they grow together, as family.

And heartfelt prayers for D and J....may they have peace in their hearts that they made the most selfless decision for their son and that he will be a part of their life when they are ready...and will be loved beyond measure.
