Elyce & Joe

Hello!  We are Elyce and Joe.  Thank you for taking time to read about us.  We do not know each other yet, but we have so much respect and care for you already.  Whatever place you are in, we know you are so strong and selfless and courageous.  We will always think of you this way as the years go by.

We’re so grateful for the ways that adoption has already changed our lives for the better!  Our daughter, Annika, came home to us in 2020 and has filled our lives with fun and joy and love.  We are forever grateful to her birth mom for entrusting us with her.

As a family of 3, we love to visit with family and friends, explore our city, and spend time outdoors. We are very active as a couple and a family. We both come from big families (Elyce is the oldest of 6 and Joe is one of 4). Each side of our family is full or people excited to welcome another child to the family!

We truly believe that a relationship with biological family is so powerful and we want that for our children when possible.  Our hope is for our children to experience love from us as well as from their biological family throughout life.  We have a close connection with Annika’s birth mother.  We text regularly, sending pictures and stories.  We also see her often in person.  She is part of our family.  We would be happy to do the same with you as well.  We would love to stay in touch with you through calls, texts, and visits.

We want you to know that you are in our minds and prayers.  We hope you find clarity and peace during this time and into the future.

Nancy & John

We have known for years now that adoption is the path God has chosen for our family. We believe this is the right time for us to adopt a child. To us, adoption is one of the most beautiful expressions of love in this world. Kids have always been a big part of our lives. We have been involved in big brothers/big sisters, volunteered with kids in school, we enjoy taking our nieces and nephews to the water parks, football games, and just being a part of their lives. We love and adore kids; we have the patience, mercy, grace, and love that we look forward to pouring into our child. We understand the challenges that can come with parenting and we look forward to them and all the joy that comes with it. We have been praying for you and the little life inside of you. We pray that you have peace and strength as you make this decision. The decision before you is not an easy one. We don’t know what has brought you to this place, but I know that amazing good can come out of any situation. We believe whole-heartedly that God is orchestrating everything behind the scenes and trust that you will be led to make the best decision for your baby and yourself. Thank you for considering us, we can’t wait to start this journey.

Yolna

Hi! Thank you for considering me to be part of your adoption plan.

I know this is a difficult time for you as you consider the best plan for your precious baby. I admire you for choosing life and for considering adoption.  I am praying for you and the baby throughout the pregnancy and that God will grant you peace in your decision.

I am a single, Christian, family oriented woman.  I have always wanted to have children and have dreamt of that day since I was a  teenager.  During high school I took care of the children in the family and those of family friends.  In my adult years and during college, I became a preschool teacher and cared for babies and toddlers for a period of five years.  I then cared for my nephews and niece during summer break or when their parents were not available.  After my college years and once I was financially stable and settled in my home, I found myself without a life partner and still not married and yet eager to have a family. This is when I considered adoption.  I reside in the Florida area and I have worked for a Children’s hospital for the past nine years.

I know I have a lot of love in my heart for a child and I truly wish for the opportunity to give it. I have a home in a gated community with plenty of space to share with a child in my life. Should you choose me to raise your child, I promise to cherish, love and care for your child with my heart and soul. I promise to provide a safe, comfortable and happy home for him/her.

In my family, our faith, family and education are very important to us and I promise to make them a part of your child’s life as well. Your child will learn about love, respect, Integrity, structure and also enjoy fun times with family. I am part of a close-knit family; we have many family gatherings and celebrate every holiday as a family. I love to cook, bake and love hosting family dinners.  Your child will experience those loving family traditions as well and learn how to maneuver himself or herself in the kitchen at the appropriate age. Rest assured that your child will have a happy and fulfilling life.

I like to travel, and experience different cultures. It would be a joy to experience sightseeing with your child and through his or her eyes. I look forward to helping him/her with homework, taking him/her to ballet, piano lessons or other extracurricular activities of his or her interest.

Your child will know that they are adopted and know what a difficult decision their mother made and how much she loves him/her.

Thank you for taking a glance into my life.

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

Elly & Nate

Hello and thank you so much for considering Elly, Violet, and Nate as an adoptive family.  We have been married for 15 years, together for 20 years and have one 7 year old daughter, Violet.  Our greatest joy and aspiration in life has been being parents, and feel strongly called to grow our family through adoption.  We can’t imagine how difficult the decision to place your child with an adoptive family must have been, however our promise to you is that we will do all in our power to provide a stable and loving environment so that your child will thrive.  He or She will always know love and understand the sacrifice you’ve made for Him or Her.

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

Jaclyn & Alan

Hi! We are Alan and Jaclyn. Thank you for taking the time to get to know more about us and our hopes for the future.

We met 14 years ago in college and have been married for the past 10 years. In 2019, we welcomed our son into the family through adoption. We love being parents and know that we have more love, time, and energy to give.  We come into open adoption with open hearts and minds. While we cannot promise to be perfect parents, we do promise to do our best and provide unconditional love and support. We know our son will be a great big brother who gives the best hugs and can make anyone laugh. We live in St. Louis, Missouri surrounded by extended family. Together with our family we look forward to welcoming a new family member. To learn more about us, please check out our attached profile.

Wishing you well,

Alan & Jaclyn

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

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!

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.

To learn more about us, please check out our attached profile.

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.

Abigail & Todd

Hi! We are Todd and Abigail. We are so happy you are here! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to get to know us. We are a loving, compassionate couple from Vermont! We are a multicultural and multiracial family and are ecstatic about becoming parents again through adoption. We adopted our daughter, Maisie who is Hispanic and Native American, and we now have a beautiful open adoption with her birth family.  We regularly celebrate her heritage and she’s currently learning Spanish. We feel truly blessed to be considered as parents to your baby.

 

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

Eve & Chris

Thanks for stopping by!  We’d love to get to know you, but first, a little about us…

Married for 7 years, each year together strengthens our bond.  We live in a suburb of Richmond, Virginia, and have family in Florida, Texas, and Pennsylvania.  Between the young kids in our neighborhood and the very active kids’ group and music and arts program at our church, there will be lots of opportunities to make new friends!

Eve works in healthcare, and Chris is a creative.  He even made our profile book and illustrated our story.  We can’t wait for future story times, breaking out into random made-up song and dance sessions with a little one, and enjoying all of those fresh perspectives and moments that only kids offer.

We desire to give your baby a home to feel safe, loved, and valued every day.  We’ll provide a well-rounded, down-to-earth life with plenty of homecooked meals. (We both love to cook.  It’s one of Eve’s expressions of love!)  A little one would be the perfect addition to join us in our travels (including Disney), at-home movie nights, game nights, gentle hikes, and walks in the park or around the neighborhood.

We will always portray you favorably and will aim to learn about and include traditions and culture as applicable.  Thank you for your selflessness and courage.  We wish you blessings and will be praying for you during this journey.

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

Kayla & Derek

We’re Derek and Kayla. We have been married 3 years and live in Iowa! Kayla has always lived in Iowa, and Derek was born in Florida and moved to Iowa at age 8. Adoption is on our hearts after a long struggle with infertility. We very much believe when we meet this sweet baby it will make sense as to why God sent us on this journey.

Please know how much we are praying for you and your sweet baby as you decide what is going to be the best for your family. Open adoption can be a gift, and we plan to follow your lead on how much communication you would like. If you wake up one morning thinking of the baby and want to see what they are doing, we’d be honored to send a photo.

We are a hardworking, fun-loving couple. Derek works at a casino as a table games dealer and Kayla works in HR/payroll. Our favorite thing to do together is travel. Our favorite trip has been Disney World and can’t wait to take our future family. All of Kayla’s family lives in our same town and we get together for all the holidays. We absolutely adore our two nieces and two nephews and spend most of our weekends with them.

Now that you’ve learned a little about us, we hope you can take a deep breath and know that all will be okay. We know at this moment that you are simply trying to do what any parent would, and that’s doing what is necessary to ensure the best for your child. Given the opportunity, we look forward to building a relationship with you and offering love, hope, and support during this process. Please check out our profile to get an even better idea of who we are.

With Love,

Kayla & Derek

Thank You Notes

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We at A Step Ahead Adoption Services (ASA) have had the pleasure to work collaboratively with the wonderful attorneys and staff at Hausmann & Hickman Law.

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.

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.

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. Our birthmother felt the same way. Michelle’s kindness and expertise helped all of us get through a sometimes difficult process with ultimate success. We highly recommend her.

– Kim & Josh, Adoptive Parents

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.

We have good news: in some instances, adoptive parents are eligible to claim their adoptive child as a dependent even if the adoption has
