    Selecting the right family for your baby

    Lisa here...I am so grateful for the opportunity to have continued relationships (on terms under which they are comfortable) with the birthmothers of our two children. I was adopted from Korea back when all adoptions were closed and think that Abrazo is helping to make this a better, more open and more honest process for everyone involved.

    Baby Announcements 2020

    It's Abrazo's 26th year, and what better way to start the second week of the New Year than with a placement? (Especially one that was long-awaited?) This pair of againers from Missouri came back to adopt again a year ago, thinking they'd attend camp in lieu of orientation, but a failed adoption plan followed, and then months of waiting and then a cancelled orientation weekend, so they joined our What Brings You to This Conversation? November 2019 orientation, instead, and that did the trick, because the "right" match came up right afterwards! Their patience was definitely rewarded, and now, thanks to a loving birthmom who made her best choice on behalf of her family, their "forever family" has grown to include a beautiful baby girl and her birthfamily, too. Blessings, all!

    Family Opposition?

    Great topic! From our experience in the beginning, it was interesting to see our families reactions when we told them we were going to adopt. Some were over the top excited and others didn't know how to react at all. Since bringing baby O home, all have come to love and accept him as our own. So thankful to have a family that is open minded and supportive. It made the process a little easier for us. Looking forward to seeing those relationships grow!

    Selecting the right family for your baby

    Kristal, Since we have been matched with our birthmom, I believe God led us both to each other. There is no other explanation on how much we loved each other immediately. We feel so blessed to have her in our lives! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    Nursery Notes

    Recently, Abrazo has gotten several inquiries from prospective birthparents interested in placing African-American children ranging in age from 1-3... and we struggle to accommodate them, because their hope is to find their children homes where at least one family member will look like their little one, and the majority of our waiting families are either not African-American OR are seeking only infants. Please help spread the word that Abrazo is in need of racially-diverse adoptive families who are open to toddlers of either gender, who are homestudy-ready and committed to the concept of open adoption! Any interested prospective couples are welcome to call our family services coordinator, Amy Byrd, at 210-342-5683, or visit abrazo.org to learn more about our admissions process. Thank you!

    Baby Announcements 2019

    We are delighted to announce that beloved againers from the Hold On, Heather's Here orientation group from May 2019 got The Call yesterday about a mother who'd delivered a baby at home and needed a family for him, so they happily abandoned whatever weekend plans they'd already made to travel north instead! The birthmom had originally had no intentions of choosing adoptive parents or doing an open adoption, but upon reviewing their profile, she realized she just had to meet them. and we're so glad she did! The son they now forever share will benefit from the friendship they're building, and that, in itself, seems to qualify this as a Christmas miracle. So happy for all of them, and especially, for their beautiful baby boy.
