Brittany & Drew

Before we even met each other, we each had a desire to adopt children. After we got married (ten years ago), those individual desires were confirmed and began to grow as we settled and began our life together. Our longing as hopeful-adoptive parents is to share our home, hospitality, and love with a child. We believe that all children are worthy of respect and dignity, and we are committed to showing that to our children.
We are active in our church, love teaching at our local university, and enjoy hanging out with friends and spending quiet nights at home. We spend our free time out in the yard, going for runs, reading, and watching TV and movies. We’re avid coffee drinkers, moderate foodies, and aspiring chefs. We have two children; our son, Owen, is almost 6 and our daughter, Afton, is 3. They love playing at the beach, painting, and dressing up. We happily imagine a new baby fitting right into these aspects of our lives: in our home, playing at the beach or going for a run in the jogging stroller, and eating meals together (it’ll be a long time before we drink coffee together!), as well as spending time with our friends and church community.

We deeply value the expression of love and generosity that is embodied by every person involved in the adoption process: birth parents, children, and adoptive parents. We are so looking forward to our family growing in size!

Lindsay & John

Hi there! We are Lindsay and John. Thank you for taking a minute to read about us! We have been together for 6 years and married for 3 years. We both work in healthcare and love helping others in any way we can. We always maintain a healthy work/life balance with interests in music, sports, cooking and travelling. Family is very important to us both, and we make time to see our family as often as possible. We also have a wonderful network of friends that are like family to us that we are with often.

One of the major things we have in common is our love of children. We are always spending time with our friends that have children, and we love watching them learn and play and grow. We are still kids at heart and can’t wait to have a child to love and support. If you choose us, your baby will be loved deeply and provided the opportunities to explore interests and always feel adored. We hope you know that we respect the decision you are making and can only imagine how difficult it must be for you. If you would like to know more about us, please take a look at our profile.

Thank you,

Lindsay and John

Yadi & Ross

Hi!! We are Yadi and Ross, and we are so thankful that you’re taking the time to consider us in your adoption plan. We know that you are making what is likely one of the most difficult decisions of your life, and we want you to know we admire your selflessness in this difficult time.
Please take a few minutes to take a look at the attached profile so you can get to know us more, but we are very much hoping that you will help us grow our family and include us in this journey. We have been married for almost 10 years, and we really hope you will share this gift of life with us.
If you choose us we promise to love your child unconditionally and provide a loving and safe home. We promise to teach kindness, love, integrity, generosity, and adventure to your child and encourage him or her to follow their passion whatever it may be.
Thank you so much for considering us!
With love,
Yadi and Ross

Martina & Justin

Hello,
Thank you very much for visiting our profile. After meeting as young teens in a youth group summer camp, we remained in contact throughout high school and college before we finally began dating in school, now as young adults. We married shortly after graduating and were fortunate enough to have our first child, Riley, in 2019. She is the love of our lives and she is the happiest little girl we ever could have dreamt for.
Our family lives in South Florida in a child-friendly neighborhood. Riley’s grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins all live within a few minutes of each other which makes family weekends the greatest!
We both come from very fun-loving families and both grew up with younger siblings. We would love nothing more than to watch our sweet Riley grow up as an older sister.
We are honored to be in consideration for this most difficult decision you are making and we would love to be blessed with the opportunity to expand our family.

Frank & Damian

Dear friend,

We understand how courageous, strong, and loving you are to have considered adoption. We can’t imagine what you’re going through, but we are very proud of you. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to hear our story and learn more about us. Our dream is to build a family of our own, filled with love, protection, and safety. While you take a glimpse into our lives, we hope you recognize the love and support we get from our friends and family. You are not alone during this journey. This will be a blessing that will only make our family grow even more. We want you to feel secure and comfortable in your decision to choose us as adoptive parents.

Christine & Robert

Hello! We’re Christine and Robert. As you read this please know that we are incredibly thankful for you and admire your love and courage in considering an adoption plan for your baby. We understand this is a deeply personal decision. We promise your baby will be surrounded by love and laughter, that our home and our hearts will always be loving, and you will forever have a place in our family. We are open to sharing as much about your baby’s growth and life as you want to receive.

About Us

Although we live in Orlando now, Robert grew up in Michigan and Christine in Pittsburgh (Go, Steelers!). We have strong family ties in both places and visit often. We’ve been married for ten years and in that time we’ve been fortunate enough to work and travel around the world. After living in Washington, D.C. for six years, Robert accepted a job with Disney and we happily moved back to Florida to be near friends and family. Although Christine began her career as a teacher, she recently completed a second graduate degree in Speech-Language Pathology. She now works as a therapist in a pediatric clinic serving kids with special needs and truly loves her job! Both of our jobs are very flexible, allowing us to work from home and take time off as needed.

Our Home & Values

We love to be outdoors and take advantage of the beautiful sunny weather. We live in a planned community with miles of paved biking and hiking trails, several playgrounds, community gardens, a beautiful pool, picnic areas, an outdoor exercise trail, and a disc golf course. Our home is spacious, with a large yard where we enjoy playing cornhole and ladder ball, gardening, roasting marshmallows, and grilling out with friends and family. Our community is very family-focused, often holding themed events and seasonal activities (e.g. movies in the park, NASA Space Day, mobile ice rinks during the holidays, petting zoos, and more!). There are four top-rated schools within walking distance of our home. We value education and have already created an account for college tuition to ensure your baby has as many options as possible.

It’s hard to sum ourselves up in such a brief way, but we hope we’ve given you a sense of the kind of people we are and the family we can provide. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us!

Emily & Ryan

Hello!
Thank you so much for allowing us to introduce ourselves to you. We are Emily and Ryan. We truly hope this is the beginning of our journey to get to know you and your precious child. We have tremendous respect for you and realize this must be an extremely difficult decision. Know that we feel humbled by the possibility of welcoming your special baby into our home.
We both come from very close families and have so much love to give.
We have the good fortune of both having very solid and flexible careers and could not be more excited and ready to add a little person to our fun-filled household. We say this because our home is welcoming, cozy, filled with a lot of laughter, and a few furry friends.
We have waited quite a while as some genetic issues just won’t allow for us to have our own children, and we desperately want them. We know that your baby will be forever loved, nurtured, and taught to be the best person they can be if you decide to consider us as your adoptive parents.
We hope you will get to know us better by looking at our profile book and clicking on our attached bio.
Wishing you the very best,
Emily and Ryan

Fiona & Dermot

Hi! We are Fiona and Dermot. We are so happy you are taking the time to read our profile. We hope it gives you a sense of who we are and why we hope to become adoptive parents and share our happy home with a child.

We live in a New England seaside town in a neighborhood filled with children and families, only a few miles from the beach. Our street is quiet and full of trees, and it’s a place where people come to take walks and walk their dogs. Lots of kids come to our neighborhood at Halloween since so many young families live here. In the winter, our neighborhood becomes a snowy wonderland with white-capped trees and kids sledding down the hill around the corner.

We have been married for almost eight years, and while fertility issues have kept us from having a child naturally, we have always wanted children, and want more than anything to raise a family. Right now our home consists of Fiona, Dermot, and our two cats, Mookie and Frosty. We also have a strong support network of friends and family nearby.

We take lots of joy from the little things in life, and we like to be outdoors as much as we can. Education is important to us (Dermot is a teacher and Fiona is a lawyer), and we would make sure your child gets an excellent education and has every opportunity to fulfill his or her dreams.

We thank you for your brave and thoughtful decision to make an adoption plan for your child. We would be so honored and grateful to adopt a child and give him or her a happy, loving, supportive home.

Pat & Patty

Hi, we are Pat and Patty. We are very grateful you are considering adoption and viewing our profile. We will do our very best to paint a picture of our life, to help you imagine your child as a part of our family.
We were college sweethearts, and boast 26 years of friendship and 19 years of marriage. We count our blessings, laugh often, and try not to take ourselves too seriously. A stable home, with a loving couple that has an excellent track record of making sacrifices for the sake of their marriage and the good of the family, is what we have to offer a child.
May whatever you decide, bring you peace and comfort. If you choose to make an adoption plan with us, we promise to do all we can to support you.
-Pat & Patty

Melanie & Scott

Hello! We are Melanie and Scott. We are so grateful that you have taken the time to learn more about us and our hopes for the future as you make such an important decision. We hope these words, along with our attached profile book, give you a glimpse into what it would be like to be a member of our loving family, the values that shaped who we are and the nurturing environment in which we plan to raise our child.

We have both been blessed with tight-knit families who gifted us with wonderful upbringings. Melanie was born and raised in Florida with her parents and younger sister. Scott, on the other hand, is an only child who moved to Florida from Massachusetts, with his parents, when he was ten years old. We have been happily married for six years but inseparable since we started dating in college, nearly twelve years ago. We have always known that we wanted to become parents and are beyond thrilled to begin this chapter of our lives!

We currently live in sunny South Florida, just a few miles from the beach in a community that is perfect for raising a child. We are surrounded by great schools, parks, walking trails, sporting venues and are not too far from Walt Disney World – a place we visit often! Most importantly, we live close to our parents, Melanie’s sister and brother-in-law, and many extended relatives which makes family gatherings an indispensable part of our lives. Our families are incredibly supportive, generous and the most loving people we know.

Scott has a stable and successful career in the tech industry. Melanie formerly worked in retail  but has now chosen to dedicate all of her time to being the very best mother to our future child. Our dog, Rocky, who has been a huge part of our lives for ten years, is easily the sweetest dog you will ever meet.

Our promise to each other and to you is that we will always provide a happy, loving, caring and supportive home to our child. We want our child to feel safe, cared for and excited in the idea that the possibilities for them are truly endless, as is the love we will have for them.

We admire your bravery as you make this difficult decision and we are grateful that you have given us a chance to share our story with you. Words cannot express how thankful we are to have the opportunity to be considered as adoptive parents for your child.

Sincerely,

Scott & Melanie

Rebecca & Elliott

We are Elliott, Rebecca, and Ellie. We are a family created by adoption and love.

We want to share a little about our hearts and hopefully get to know yours one day soon.

Through this book, we hope that you can see our love of life and family and our genuine desire to be the best parents possible.

We adopted our daughter, Ellie, four years ago, so our family understands the importance of the decision you are considering.

If our family feels like home for your child, we would be blessed by your trust in us.

Whatever your choice may be, please know that we are thinking about you, praying for you, and support you as you seek what feels right for you and your baby.

With great love,

Rebecca & Elliott

Claudia & Maurizio

Hello, we are Claudia and Maurizio and it is an incredible honor to have the opportunity to be considered as potential partners in your life journey. Although we don’t know each other yet, we have an incredible sense of respect and admiration for you and the brave decision you are evaluating.
Family is the most important aspect of our lives and we have always wanted to become parents. We have relatives and friends who have adopted a child, and through them, we learned how much happiness and joy can be shared through adoption.
We have attached our adoption profile, and we hope that you will find something that will make you consider us.

Jerry & Gayla

       Our hearts go out to you as we think of the difficult yet selfless decision you are considering. We are honored to give you a little peek into our lives, hearts, and home. Adoption has split our hearts wide open as we have welcomed both our boys home through adoption. We are truly humbled by the thought of you considering us as parents for your child.

        We have been friends for 15 years and married for 13 of those. We have a solid relationship built on trust and our love for each other. Our lives have been made so much sweeter since our sons, Jax, 6, and Bowen, 3, have joined us. Our home is filled with love, laughter, good times and memories made.

        We live on an 80 acre farm in rural Michigan. We feel extremely blessed to own a farm and acreage, giving our children lots of room to run, explore, and enjoy the great outdoors. Jax and Bowen spend hours outside, exploring the farm, playing in the sandbox, swinging, swimming, and helping “feed the cattle”. Farming is a busy but fun life that involves the whole family. The boys love riding in the tractors and trucks and during planting and harvest time many of our meals are eaten in the field.

        We love our boys and their first families unconditionally. In our minds it is impossible to love one without the other. Adoption is talked of freely in our home and Jax and Bowen have known their stories from the beginning. They are so excited to think of another baby joining our family and so are we! We are open to developing whatever kind of relationship you are comfortable with.

        We hope you’ve caught a glimpse of the love we have to share and the respect we have for you. It is our hope and prayer you will find an incredible amount of peace and comfort during this time.

        To learn more about us, please see our attached profile.

Haley & Josh

We are honored that you would consider us as adoptive parents for your child. We know this is not an easy decision for you but also know that it comes from a place of deep love.

We have an adopted son named George, who is almost three years old. We are a happy, loving family of three (plus two dogs) and are thrilled at the prospect of becoming a family of four. George loves babies. He actually carries around a baby doll that Haley’s mom bought for him and sleeps with it at night. He would be the best big brother to your child.

All three of us love the outdoors. It seems the majority of our time is spent at the beach, in the backyard, on the playground, exploring new trails near our home, or walking our two dogs, Huck and Gertie. George loves trying to walk them himself or just riding his scooter while we walk. He also loves spending time at our condo at the beach. He loves digging holes in the sand and swimming in both the gulf and pool.  When we are inside, most of our time is spent reading new books with George, cooking, or doing fun art projects. It would be amazing to share these same experiences and more with a new addition to our family.

We also have a large extended family. Most of them live close by, and we spend a lot of time playing with cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles. Haley’s closest sister lives in Italy. She is married to an Italian man, and they have three beautiful daughters together. We love to visit them often. We also love to travel to the mountains to hike and play in the woods. One of our favorite trips was hiking to Machu Pichu in Peru for four days. We want to take that trip again with our growing family.

Our greatest desire is to provide your little one with all the love and opportunities you would also give. We promise to give him or her the best education available as well as exposure to all of life’s fun side from travel to the arts and sports. Please read our profile to learn more about us!

With Love, Haley and Josh

Keri & Matt

Keri & Matt

Sandra & Ron

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We are grateful that you are considering us to raise the child that you are expecting and appreciate that you are considering this loving path. Please know that your child will have the brightest of futures with us.

Our seaside town is a unique place where it is truly ideal to raise a family and to grow up as a child. We believe in providing your child with every educational and developmental opportunity balanced with fun and variety. Our families are tight-knit and so supportive of our plans to adopt a second child.
Both future siblings will get to share this bond. And your child will immediately gain a lifelong, sweet-mannered, and energetic older brother! Our marriage is long enduring. Sandra is naturally maternal, joyful, and full of energy. A nurturer, she makes everyone feel special. Ron is gentle in nature and kind and patient.

He relishes playing endless games and reading books over and over again to a child’s content. Our immediate family is made up of Ron and Sandra and our two-year-old son who also joined our family through the beauty of adoption, and our sweet long haired lab. Our extended families live no more than 10 minutes away and that includes three darling cousins who are always ready to play. Our family members all have a playful spirit and a sense of adventure which makes travel, outdoor activities, and beach life a natural part of our lives. Our quiet seaside area remains charming and safe and very much home to both of us. Our home is close to great schools and nearby parks and Orlando parks are near.
We hope to share this quality of life if we have the opportunity. Thanks to the support that we have from our family and our community, we’ve been able to build a loving, welcoming, and lasting home. We offer your child the stability of our strong marriage and that we will be loving parents and providers.

Katie & Scott

Hello and thank you for taking the time to view our adoption profile. We are Scott and Katie and we have been together for over 11 years and were married six years ago. We are active and love being outside, whether it be playing soccer or softball, hiking and camping, or just sitting on the porch. Our relationship is grounded in a strong friendship and deep love for and trust in one another.

Since early in our relationship, we’ve talked about building our family through adoption. We were overjoyed to welcome our first child, Morgan, through adoption in 2019. We love being parents and know that we can provide a supportive, fun, open, and loving home for our family. Our family and friends are incredibly supportive of our decision to adopt and are excited to welcome the newest addition to the family.

Scott is originally from the Philadelphia area and Katie is from Chicagoland, but we have lived in Washington, D.C. for over 11 years. Our community is a great place to raise a family. We look forward to welcoming another child into our family.

Rebekah

Hi there!

Thank you for considering me as your adoptive parent!

Being an adopted child myself is what brought me on this journey to meet you! I have always known I wanted to adopt a child especially because I was.

This choice you are making will never be taken lightly. It will be honored and cherished. You and your child are true blessings. I know you are brave and beautiful, and I will make sure your child knows how really special you are.

I am so grateful that I have a connection with my birth mom, for what she did for me and how much she appreciates my adoptive parents. I respect her immensely. I want to be able to do the same for your child. I will give him or her all that I can with love, support, understanding. Hazel, my almost 7 year old, can’t wait to meet, hug, love and teach your child. She will be the most compassionate big sister.

I deeply believe that the very best gift you can give an adopted child is to be open with them from the very beginning. Your child will always feel like he/she belongs and being adopted was a gift between two amazing women, you and me.

Warmly,

Rebekah

Yanet & Carlos

We are honored to share our memorable moments and welcome you to take part in our lovely story. We can only begin to imagine the decisions that you are preparing to make on the best option for you and your precious baby. We hope that you feel supported and loved in this journey. You have touched our hearts with your strength and courage to do the best for your beautiful child.

We met seven years ago! Since that time, we have been holding each other’s hands, praying and encouraging each other. We laugh, smile, and love each other. We have our hearts and souls open to adoption and have experienced the positive and beautiful results of adoption since Carlos was adopted as a child. This is something that we cherish as we walk this special path. As a loving couple, we are excited to begin this journey and share our love with a precious child. Our family is a circle of strength, founded on faith, joined in love, kept by God, together forever!

Our promise to you and your child:

To love, respect, and care for your child. To always be grateful for the blessing of you choosing our family and for the love that you have for your child. To provide a strong and loving family.

A family based on love, understanding, communication, and a foundation on our Lord. A bilingual (English/ Spanish) family that promotes education, learning, helping others, and spending time with family and friends. A family that enjoys nature, going on vacation, cruises, swimming, and playing with the sand. We enjoy gathering together around our Christmas tree, eating ice cream, or having pizza nights.

THANK YOU!

We want to thank you for taking the time to read our beautiful story. It is a blessing to share how grateful we are and how special it is to give a loving baby a chance at life. This is a dream come true for us, our family, and our friends. We pray that you find the strength and the guidance to choose the best loving, caring, and special family for your child. May your heart be filled with peace and tranquility. May you see the stars in the sky at night and know that we are all together in heart, spirit, and love.

Claire & Allen

We’re Allen and Claire, best friends and a loving family. We’d like to show you a little about our life and would love to get to know you as well. We’ve always known we wanted to have children and feel incredibly blessed to become parents through adoption. Claire’s sister is adopted and from a young age, she knew she wanted to adopt one day. Allen grew up closely with a cousin who was adopted as well.

Some of our most influential experiences have been serving with the local outreach committee at our church. We’ve met great friends and have an amazing support system in our community. Our family loves staying active and spending time outside whether exploring our city, discovering new restaurants, taking walks in our neighborhood, or throwing the ball with our dog, Scotch, in the backyard. We also love cooking together and having family and friends over for dinner on the porch.

As foster parents, we were blessed to love and share our life with precious children before they returned to their families. We’re ready to adopt and find the child meant to be a part of our lives forever. We’re humbled by your steadfast love and that you’d consider sharing your gift of life with us. We know we can’t fully understand the pain and difficulty of being in your shoes right now, but want you to know that you’re seen, valued, and loved. We’re praying for you and hoping you find genuine comfort and peace as you continue this journey, wherever it takes you.

Brittanny

Hi! Thank you for considering me to be part of your adoption plan. I am honored. You are making a brave choice. Please know that I will make sure your child knows love, support, and happiness as they journey through life.

I am in Central Florida surrounded by a large loving family that supports my choice of adoption to the fullest. I have always wanted to adopt. It was such a joy to watch my Sister and her family expand through adoption. Some of my favorite things to do are spending time with family and friends, reading, hiking, baking, and going to museums. I want to be able to incorporate these things into my expanding family and instill a sense of fun and adventure. Some of my favorite memories are the big family gathers.

Please know if you pick me, your child will be loved unconditionally. I will make it a priority to teach them love, compassion, responsibility, adventure, integrity and so much more.

With Love,
Brittanny

Larry & Cindy

Hello and thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your baby. We are Larry & Cindy. We have been together for 5 years, married for almost 4 years and we’ve been inseparable ever since. We truly enjoy spending time together whether we are alone or surrounded by friends and family.
We don’t have children of our own yet, but we have more than 2 dozen nieces and nephews from 6 months old to 20 years old. I know what you’re thinking, 2 dozen! That’s a huge family! Our family includes Cindy’s 2 sisters, Larry’s brother, 3 nieces, and 3 nephews divided between our siblings. The rest are the children of our closest friends who are the family we have chosen. We love all of them for their unique personalities and we love watching them grow up.
The one wish we’ve always had was to have children of our own to raise alongside this huge melting pot family that we’ve made together. We have always known that we wanted to be parents, and we would be honored to adopt your baby.
We know that your decision to place your baby with an adoptive family comes from a place of love, and we promise to provide unconditional love and support to this child. We know that our family is also looking forward to welcoming a new member. We hope that through getting to know us better you will realize that we are the right choice.
Thank you again for considering us.
Larry & Cindy

Trina & Joe

Wishing you the very best,
Trina and Joe

Thank You Notes

We retained Amy after our adoption placement (made by another agency) became contested. Having no legal knowledge of how adoptions worked, it was a relief to have Amy walk us through every painful step. She worked diligently at times I would have never expected, including conducting depositions on her own daughter’s birthday and through the grieving of the sudden loss of her mother. Never once was there an excuse and she was always one step or more ahead of any opposition.

More Details

My husband and I recently adopted our infant son this past February, and we could not have been in better hands than with the help of Hausmann & Hickman, P.A. Adoption is a very complicated and an involved process, and Michelle worked directly with my husband and I alongside our adoption agency each step of the way from placement all the way to our court finalization.

More Details

My name is Danae and I was already a mother of 3 when I became pregnant again.  I wasn’t married and I didn’t know what I was going to do.  I only knew that I couldn’t have an abortion.  Shortly after meeting Michelle and doing all of the paperwork, she called and told me of a young couple who had tried for 8 years to get pregnant. I think I knew within the first ten minutes that the child I was carrying was meant to be theirs…they were so much in love, and I could just tell that they would be good parents.

More Details

Hausmann & Hickman was a reliable and consistent resource that helped us navigate the most important decision of our life. They treated our family with complete respect & dignity. We will always be grateful for all they have done for our family.

More Details

Dear Michelle, Amy and all of the amazing staff at Hausmann and Hickman, Thank you so much for your help in our journey to become a family. Your sage wisdom and guidance was so helpful and we felt like we were in good hands every step of the way.

More Details

Hello my name is Alexa and I am a birthmother. I have done two placements, both with Hausmann and Hickman.  I am so grateful to the wonderful women at Hausmann and Hickman for all of their hard work. They were able to get me connected with the right families for both of my placements.

More Details

We want to thank Michelle Hausmann and Amy Hickman for their efforts in bringing our son, Connor, into our lives. We are grateful for their professionalism and dedication in finding us the perfect birth mother to be paired with. From start to finish, they did an absolutely fantastic job.

More Details

Dear Michelle, Amy and all of the amazing staff at Hausmann and Hickman, Thank you for this. The family here in this Christmas card means the world to me and it’s all thanks to you! Thank you for the work you do every single day, for that work has given us our family.

More Details

We have worked with Michelle on our last two adoptions. We love Michelle and all of the staff. Communication and support is the best, and we can’t imagine adopting without them!

Working with Michelle was an absolute pleasure. From the outset we knew she was working hard to find us the right birthmother. She was knowledgeable and patient when we needed guidance, reassuring and thoughtful when we were anxious, supportive and excited for us at all stages of our journey.

We retained Amy after our adoption placement (made by another agency) became contested. Having no legal knowledge of how adoptions worked, it was a relief to have Amy walk us through every painful step. She worked diligently at times I would have never expected, including conducting depositions on her own daughter’s birthday and through the grieving of the sudden loss of her mother. Never once was there an excuse and she was always one step or more ahead of any opposition. To say she is an expert in her field is an understatement! She would always make sure that we were “ok” mentally with the horrific ordeal we were facing and that she never expected us to take time away from our baby.  She never laughed at any of my husband’s absurd questions which was a huge plus. 

I am proud to say that we have made a friend for life by hiring Amy Hickman and would recommend her 100%. Our 16 month journey would not have been as tolerable without her. It was fate she was brought to our family. I honestly can say I miss talking with her every single day.

My husband and I recently adopted our infant son this past February, and we could not have been in better hands than with the help of Hausmann & Hickman, P.A.  Adoption is a very complicated and an involved process, and Michelle worked directly with my husband and I alongside our adoption agency each step of the way from placement all the way to our court finalization. Not only was the process seamless and well organized, Michelle was also extremely responsive to our concerns and questions through email, phone, and text.

Additionally, we selected to have an open adoption.  Not only did Hausmann & Hickman ensure our comfort through the adoption process, but we were extremely impressed with the care and sensitivity for our birth family, making sure their needs were met and making them feel as comfortable as possible during the time of placement. Rather than the placement being a sad and emotional time, it became a celebration of two families becoming one with a lasting connection through the common love of our son.

Since our adoption happened right before Covid19 exploded across the United States, we had some delays in our court finalization. However, Michelle was very understanding of our anxiety, and reassured us that everything was filed correctly, double checked, and was simply in the hands of the judge and state. Knowing Hausmann & Hickman was on top of our finalization and keeping tabs on our case was extremely comforting.  When our finalization finally came a couple of months later, it made us even more proud and undeniably happy to become officially recognized as our son’s parents.

We have a sincere sense of gratitude for Hausmann & Hickman for putting our minds at ease, walking us through all of the documentation, and basically holding our hands through it all. Every day we feel incredibly thankful for our son, the birth family who gave us such an incredible gift, our adoption agency, and the truly top notch and first class service through Michelle Hausmann and the staff at Hausmann & Hickman P.A.

My name is Danae and I was already a mother of 3 when I became pregnant again.  I wasn’t married and I didn’t know what I was going to do.  I only knew that I couldn’t have an abortion.  Shortly after meeting Michelle and doing all of the paperwork, she called and told me of a young couple who had tried for 8 years to get pregnant.

I think I knew within the first ten minutes that the child I was carrying was meant to be theirs…they were so much in love, and I could just tell that they would be good parents.  I was so happy to be having a baby for such loving people.  I couldn’t wait to have the baby just so I could give it to them and see their faces!

It has been nine months since Adam was born, and we still keep in touch.  I know we will always be a part of their life.  I will be able to find out how Adam is doing from a distance, and that’s just fine with me.

I did a good thing…yes, I did. And you can too.  This experience has been the greatest random act of kindness that I could ever do for somebody.  There’s no feeling like the one I had giving Adam to them, really.

Hausmann & Hickman was a reliable and consistent resource that helped us navigate the most important decision of our life. They treated our family with complete respect & dignity.
