Several months ago, Abrazo began meeting with a precious first grader whose family needed (not "wanted," but needed) to explore adoption options, wrenching as it was to contemplate. The agency searched the nation for possible adoptive families for a school-age child, but by the grace of God, we eventually found the perfect family right close to home.

They'd already had one homegrown child and had successfully finished one adoption with Abrazo, so being experienced parents, they felt another child could fit just right. The two families have spent months getting to know each other and together, they've created a plan that will surround theIr daughter with all their love.

We are infinitely thankful for each of them, and we lift them in our prayers as they each adapt to this great change in each of their lives. Blessings, all!

We brought Victor home at 5 years 3 months (along with his little sis Julie) he will be 9 next month. I am thrilled to see another Abrazo family grow this way. Please let me know if you need to talk or if you want to ask about our journey thus far. We are here. Congrats and love to all in her great big family!

Just a month after the Phi Celtic Dungarees orientation of December, 2013, Abrazo heard from an expectant mother in dire circumstances. She needed to make adoption plans. She had several other children she was struggling to care for and she knew she was already past her limits. She met with staff weekly for two months, amidst fierce opposition from her family, but in the end, she couldn't bear their disapproval so she abandoned her placement plans at the time of the birth.

Yet she couldn't help but feel she'd let her baby down, somehow. She'd wanted so much more for him. She'd hoped things would somehow magically work out but her heart kept telling her she needed to revisit her earlier intentions, and this evening, surrounded by all her children, she made the only choice she felt was truly right, for him and for her.

She remembered one profile in particular that she'd seen nearly a year ago, and she spotted that same couple's updated profile, thankful they were still waiting. She loved the idea of her little guy having a big sister to watch over him. That patient couple was more than happy to rush to San Antonio to meet her and her children tonight, and together, they have decided to become forever family.

We wish them much joy in their new kinship... and we just couldn't be happier for the dear baby boy they all now love so. Truly, the best moments in life are worth waiting for, and we're so grateful that they did. Blessings, all!
