Birth Parent Services

 

Are you pregnant and uncertain about parenting? Through our private adoption placement program, you can find adoptive parents to provide a loving and supportive home for your baby. When you place a baby for adoption through Hausmann & Hickman, P.A., the placement is done without DCF involvement, allowing the baby to leave the hospital in the arms of the family you have selected. As a birth parent, there is no cost to you.

Unlike a large adoption agency, we will personally handle your case with sensitivity and understanding.

Below are a few of our services.

We work with many adoptive families throughout the country, including single and married parents, LGBTQ+ families, and families with and without children. This is your personal adoption plan. If you don’t see the right family on our waiting families page, just let us know. We’ll help you find adoptive parents for your child through our extensive network of resources. Once you are matched, we will coordinate your meeting with the adoptive family. You may choose to exchange contact information and continue to communicate with them throughout your pregnancy and beyond.

Florida law allows the adoptive family to assist with your living expenses when needed. This may include rent, food, utilities, phone, maternity clothing, and transportation. Together we will develop a budget to help alleviate financial pressures during pregnancy and while you recover following delivery.

Deciding to place a baby for adoption can be difficult. Whether you have shared your pregnancy and adoption plan with your friends and family, or are keeping it to yourself, private counseling may be very helpful.  We work with many experienced, caring independent counselors to support you through your adoption journey.

Post-birth communication agreements allow you to watch your child grow over the years and give you peace of mind that your dreams for your child coming true. Adoption plans today are more open and include scheduled picture and letter updates. An adoption plan is personalized to fit your own unique desires for your child. Whether you are looking for pictures, letters, or even annual visits, we’re confident we can help you find the perfect family.

An important part of the adoption process is being fully informed about your legal rights and agreements. We will refer you to professional and supportive attorneys to represent you in the adoption process at no cost to you.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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!

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

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.
