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.

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.

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

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.

Flor & Marcos

Hi! Today we would like to tell you our story. We’d like that, for a few minutes, you get to know our universe, get to know who we are, and a little about our life.

One of our major dreams is to become parents and we hope that through adoption, our dream will come true.

We met almost 10 years ago, we have been married for 7. A great friend in common introduced us, he knew that the magic, the love and the connection between us was going to be instantaneous, and it was.

We were born in Argentina, and for almost 6 years we have lived in Miami, we speak English and Spanish. Both languages ​​are constantly embracing our lives.

We are blessed to be surrounded by great friends and family who visit us constantly.

Our house has the love of 3 Golden Retrievers, Merlin (5), Allegra (3) and Eros (2), they are good, affectionate and playful. Our house is big, they have their own room and garden area exclusively for them.

We are really happy with the decision of adopting a child. We believe it’s a great act of love and respect for life.

You will always be an especially important person in their life, because not only have you brought them into the world, but also have given them the possibility to live and have been extremely generous in granting us the possibility to be their family and to care for them. We will always talk to them about you and acknowledge your amazing act of love.

We’d like to provide the child with the best opportunities, love and respect. We are open to the possibility of the child having an open adoption with you depending on your wishes and what you are comfortable with.

Thank you for considering our family to be a part of your journey.

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.

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.



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.

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.
