  • Girls Too Close to the Edge

    This is a plea on behalf of girls too close to the edge. One of those girls too close to the edge was killed yesterday, in San Antonio. And it happened very early in the morning, right at the intersection in front of our building. Her name was Chandra Elysse Spears, and she had reportedly […]

  • Wanting to Adopt

    If you are wanting to adopt, there may never be a better time to apply to adopt with Abrazo. We’re always erring on the side of caution with regards to the number of adoptive families we accept in any given year, because we don’t like the concept of having a waiting list. Yet this means […]

  • Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children

    What is the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children, better known in adoption circles as “ICPC”? ICPC is an unwieldy title for a national agreement that has, since 1960, existed to coordinate the transfer of foster and adoptive children across state lines. All fifty states (plus the USVA, the District of Columbia and Puerto […]

  • When is Open Adoption Too Open?

    We spend a lot of time at Abrazo educating folks about openness, so we think it’s only fair to spend a bit of time addressing the question: when is open adoption too open? After all, too much of a good thing is, well, too much of a good thing, right? Abrazo’s definition of open adoption […]

  • The Adoption Industry

    A recent news story about troubling trends in the adoption industry is making the rounds and casting doubt and fear in the minds of adoption agency clients and adoption professionals alike. The story was precipitated by the sinking of the slickly-marketed, hugely-funded Independent Adoption Center (based out of California) last month. Hundreds of hopeful adoptive […]

  • Working in Adoption

    When you’re working in adoption, you learn a lot about people. You see people (whether they’re placing or adopting) at their worst and at their best, and you are often humbled by how far loving parents will go to give children a better life than they themselves even had. You learn that even people in […]

  • Find The Perfect Family

    “Find the perfect family for your baby!” the ad read. It was a Google ad online, placed by a large West Coast adoption network. (Or adoption facilitator. Or baby broker. Same thing.) Obviously, the company is targeting pregnant girls and expectant mothers in Texas who may be considering adoption for their baby. Given the thousands […]

  • Texas, abortion and adoption

    In Texas, abortion and adoption may seem diametrically opposed, but for one Texas woman who passed away last week, Texas, abortion and adoption were irrevocably linked. Her name was Norma… Norma McCorvey, and she was one of the most famous birthmothers you never knew. Norma grew up in the Dallas area, and like many mothers […]

  • Why Use an Adoption Agency?

    In this increasingly tech-savvy era, when social media has become so widely used for nearly everything, why use an adoption agency? After all, adoption agency fees are not cheap these days, considering the licensing standards to which adoption agencies in Texas (and elsewhere) are held, coupled with constantly-rising operating costs in every industry. And sure, […]

  • Nevertheless, She Persisted

    The words “nevertheless, she persisted” recently uttered by a lawmaker in Washington, D.C. were intended as a rebuke of a congressional colleague, yet instead, have become a rallying cry for females all across America. Upon seeing and hearing this quote, however, we cannot help but think not of warring Senate colleagues arguing over presidential appointments, […]

  • How Two Letters Can Make a World of Difference

    A post left by a visitor on Abrazo’s Facebook page today was a big reminder of how two letters can make a world of difference– and how important it is not to jump to conclusions. Abrazo had posted this new video yesterday, for women facing unwanted pregnancies, to which a visitor responded “so dumb… don’t […]

  • Adoptees and Birthsiblings

    Adoptees and birthsiblings have a birthright that forever binds them, and at Abrazo, we know well the beauty of preserving these relationships whenever a placement necessarily separates siblings. Although the public tends to prefer to think of mothers who place babies for adoption being hapless teens on their first pregnancy who are “unable to parent,” […]

  • Why Infertility Matters

    At Abrazo, our full-service program is limited to adopting couples with documented infertility, which often raises questions from fertile would-be adopters as to why infertility matters? It’s a valid question, so it deserves to be addressed. After all, if adoption is (at its core) about finding good homes for children that need them, then why […]

  • When Adoption Agencies Close

    When adoption agencies close down, what are the rights of their clients? This is the question on all our minds, upon learning of the sudden bankruptcy and closure of the Independent Adoption Center, which originated in CA before establishing satellite offices in Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, New York, North Carolina, and Texas. The Independent Adoption […]

  • Adoption Risks

    Could any adoption program ever do enough to prepare its clients for adoption risks? Adoption risks are, clearly, a potential problem in any adoption and for anybody who is adopted, has adopted, or is thinking of adopting, as well as for anyone who has placed or is considering doing so. This is because adoption (like […]

  • How Does Adoption Work?

    For the girl who called Abrazo to ask “how does adoption work?” here is a detailed answer. At Abrazo, adoption works very well for those who do it the right way and for the right reasons. We believe the right way to do adoption is with truth and transparency. When you call Abrazo (1-210-342-5683) or […]

  • Alternative Facts in Adoption

    Far be it from us to get involved in political debates, being the nonprofit Abrazo is, but the weekend news coverage has got us thinking about alternative facts in adoption? In case you’re confused, the “alternative facts” argument arose from Kellyanne Conway’s defense of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s allegations regarding the size of […]

  • Now Accepting New Clients

    It’s a bright New Year and Abrazo is now accepting new clients. So what kinds of new clients fit the Abrazo adoption agency best? Awesome people. Fabulous folks. Healthy human beings who have loving hearts and empathy for others. Abrazo’s clients aren’t perfect (since there’s no such thing, of course.) but they’re perfect for us, […]

  • Nobody’s Grass is Greener

    It’s easy for everyone to think anyone else has it better, but when it comes to adoption, the truth is that nobody’s grass is greener. It really isn’t. Trust us on this one. For expectant parents considering placing their child for adoption, who thumb through picture-perfect adoption profiles of couples waiting to adopt, it sure […]

  • Your Adopted Child’s Story

    Your adopted child’s story probably begins something like this: “Once upon a time, there was a beautiful baby who needed a home with a mommy and a daddy who wanted a baby to love more than anything in the whole wide world…” If you’ve been through Abrazo’s program, you know that story needs to include […]

  • Adoption Mantras

    Forget New Year’s resolutions: Abrazo has got healthy adoption mantras for you, instead. We know, we know. New Year’s resolutions can be healthy, too. Lose weight. Drink more water. Get back to church. Quit smoking. Save money. Stay off your cell phone when the kids are around. All of those are worthy goals, of course. […]

  • When Forever Is Far Too Brief

    The urgent phone call Abrazo received early yesterday morning was a heartbreaking reminder of the toll fate takes, when forever is far too brief. Yesterday morning, one of Abrazo’s loving adoptive families awakened and went into their baby’s room to greet him for the day, only to encounter every parent’s greatest fear: their beloved eight-week-old […]

  • San Antonio Adoption Agency Turns 23

    It’s unlikely the local headlines on Wednesday will read “San Antonio Adoption Agency Turns 23” but January 4 is going to be Abrazo’s twenty-third birthday and we are very proud of our history here in South Texas. Twenty-three years ago this week, our executive director joined forces with two local family law attorneys to open […]

  • Adopting From Out of State

    Adopting from out of state just might be easier than you think. Most folks, when they start out exploring the option of adoption, assume they have to use an adoption agency or adoption lawyer in their own city or state. The truth, however, is that US citizens are typically free to adopt through any licensed […]

  • I Cannot Raise My Grandchildren

    “I cannot raise my grandchildren,” the caller cried. “I love them, of course. But I’m done! I already raised my own kids. And I told them: don’t have kids until you’re ready to raise them.” Her son had heeded his mom’s advice, she told us, but her daughter did not. She was still in high […]

  • Texas Adoptive Couples

    Texas adoptive couples are in great demand at Abrazo! Since 1994, Abrazo has served the needs of placing parents from all over Texas and adoptive couples from all across the USA. Some expectant parents have no geographical preference for the adopting parents of the child they’re placing, as long as the adoptive couple is truly […]

  • Baby Adoptions

    Baby adoptions (also known as infant adoptions) are, undoubtedly, the most popular of adoptions. Abrazo has specialized in baby adoptions since the agency opened in 1994, which means the babies who were adopted through Abrazo back then are now college students (and some are even parents themselves, now.) Those who are interested in adopting a […]

  • Best Adoption Agency in Texas

    We asked a new client how she found her way to Abrazo last week, and she said “I googled the ‘best adoption agency in Texas’ and Abrazo came right up!” We were, obviously, happy to hear this, but even happier that she found us, knowing how many adoption agencies, adoption attorneys and other adoption services […]
