Baby Announcements 2012

Recommended Posts

When they came to orientation, last fall, becoming part of Gertrude & the Shark Tank weekend of August, 2011, nobody could have blamed them for perhaps being apprehensive of starting the process again, because a failed adoption in another state had left them grieving the loss of a child they'd thought was already theirs-- for over a week-- nearly a year ago.

Yet that brief taste of the glory of parenting had made them all the more determined to grow a family. Their painful loss only increased their understanding of the importance of openness in adoption. And their faith sustained them throughout their brief, five month journey from Abrazo's orientation weekend to Placement Day.

Still, the precious, six-pound miracle who became their son today could not have become their son, too, were it not for the loving sacrifice of the devoted couple who brought him into the world this week.

Having other children already, his first parents knew how important a stable home and consistent parenting can be. They wanted that and more for their little boy-- more than they could possibly provide, given their current circumstances. To feel comfortable with their choice, though, they knew they needed to place him with compassionate, open people who can be trusted to keep their word and keep in touch.

Today, they feel confident these are the parents they have chosen for him, and today, the lives of these four dedicated parents became forever joined, for the love of the newborn son they all adore so.

What a beautiful beginning to an exciting New Year! Congratulations and blessings to all, and a warm "welcome to the world" to Abrazo's firstborn baby of 2012.
