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

Congrats, Dale and Jennifer!! I hope you post photos soon of your time in San Antonio... these next couple of weeks are tough living out of a hotel room, but they're such a great opportunity to indulge in the time you have away from the rest of the world (hopefully with Amelia's birth family, too)! Have fun!

"Thanks everyone! Please do me a favor? When you are sending prayers and good thoughts our way, please also direct some towards Texas. While we are making joyful plans to expand our family, someone or some family is making the hardest, most life-altering decision they will ever make!" -- Againer-in-Waiting's Facebook post, February 24 at 7:56am

When she wrote that post, nearly two weeks ago, that particular Abrazomom and her husband had just had their paperwork in for Number Two for a little over a month. The proud parents of a son adopted through Abrazo a few years ago, these 'tweeners had absolutely no idea that about the same time of that gracious posting, a young mother in San Antonio was nervously trying to get up the courage to choose an adoption agency to help her make plans for a baby she was expecting two or three months from now.

As a hardworking fast food restaurant employee, she didn't have the kind of job that came with health insurance and didn't think she'd qualify for assistance, so she'd not yet seen a doctor. Yet she knew it wasn't the right time to try to raise another child on her own, and just days after that message posted on Facebook by a stranger many miles away, she found the courage to call Abrazo. On the day she came in, she spent special time talking with someone at Abrazo who knew better than anyone else on staff what it's like to place a child for adoption. This inspired her to fill out paperwork to become a client, too, and she took several profiles of waiting adoptive families home with her, reading them carefully and taking each to heart. She called Abrazo about coming in again for another visit, but before she could do so, she found herself headed for the hospital! and upon delivering this past weekend, she knew exactly whom she wanted to be her precious baby girl's new family.

And yes, somehow, she had chosen those very same folks who'd unknowingly solicited prayers on her behalf just one week before. By chance? Not hardly. After all, nothing extraordinary happens by sheer coincidence. The first chapter of this child's life story is proof, once again, of the power of Love and the importance of faith.

May her life forever be filled with both! and may her dear birthmom and her doting new family be blessed with a friendship that withstands the tests of time. Congratulations, all!
