"When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are!

Anything your heart desires will come to you.

If your heart is in your dream, no request is too extreme,

when you wish upon a star as dreamers do.

"Fate is kind, she brings to those who love

the sweet fulfillment of their secret longing.

Like a bolt out of the blue, Fate steps in and sees you through.

When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true."

-- Leigh Harline & Ned Washington, for Disney's "Pinocchio"

Some people think happy endings happen only in fairy tales, but we know better.

Today, after months of waiting and wondering and hoping and dreaming (and fresh off of a Disney cruise with their small son), againers from Abrazo's Yukon If You Want To orientation of August 2012 truly did find their dreams coming true, as they took placement of a newborn baby girl.

Her first mom (a single parent who lost her own mother the day of the baby's birth) probably feels like anything but a princess right now. But in the hearts of her daughter's new parents-by-adoption, this birthmom will surely be afforded royal respect.

And their faithful commitment to keeping her connected with the child she has placed will one day give her the sense of safety one finds within well-built castle walls, and give the daughter they share the courage to reach for the stars.

We thank each of them for being the kind of loving parents this little girl so undoubtedly deserves, and we wish them continued dreams come true, in their future together. Blessings, all!

Thank you so much for the beautiful announcement! I brought tears to my eyes, I will be printing this out for her book for sure.

We so appreciate all your thoughts and prayers for all of Madelyn's family.

Two days ago, a loving mother with her hands full and precious few resources checked into a hospital to birth a baby she knew she could not provide for-- however much her children may have wished she could bring him home.

She might initially have assumed her only available option would be a Baby Moses drop, since the hospital in her area has had such a high number of abandoned infants in recent months. A compassionate hospital social worker talked with her about her alternatives, however, and it was he who told her about Abrazo.

By the time her little one was born, Abrazo's staffers were already on their way across the state to be with her, to offer more options for her baby, and heartfelt support for her. After thinking through her decision and carefully reviewing profiles of Abrazo's waiting families, she chose the one her heart said "yes!" to-- Texas againers from Abrazo's Soiled Oats orientation of October, 2012.

Those againers were ready in every way to say "yes!" back, without deliberation, so they too leapt into action to be there for her and her tiny newborn. They joyously made life-changing plans with less than 24 hours notice-- and last-minute childcare arrangements for their precious Abrazotot, now a proud big sister!

Together, three devoted parents made decisions for their much-loved son's future, and today, we celebrate the homecoming of a beautiful boy who bears the name chosen for him by his two mothers... which, coincidentally, is the very name of the Israelite leader who succeeded Moses (and just happens to mean "God saves.")

We wish them every happiness in their lives together and we thank each of them for letting Abrazo be a part of this special miracle. Blessings, all!
