Who We Are

Family Adoption Consultants (FAC) is a private, non-profit adoption and foster care agency licensed in the States of Ohio and Michigan.  More than anything else in the world, children deserve a permanent, secure and nurturing family.  Since FAC opened its doors in 1982, we have helped more than 4,500 children find their way to loving adoptive families.  The need for families is great and is even more significant when you consider that the children we serve are innocent victims in their need for the unconditional love, support and connections that only a family can provide.

FAC is a full service adoption agency, able to assist families with both domestic and international adoptions.  Families are educated and supported by experienced and trained professionals as they deal with the complexities of the adoption process, attachment difficulties and the management of special needs presented by the children placed in their homes.

FAC has established relationships with local child welfare organizations and is able to work both within our respective States, as well as throughout the United States to assist families identifying children waiting for adoption.  Additionally, our Michigan office assists children and families by providing foster care services to children in need of a safe place to live while their birth families are getting the assistance they need inorder to be able to parent effectively and safely.

Internationally, we have our own programs through both China and the Philippines.  Our administrators maintain ongoing, personal relationships with government officials and our representatives overseas.  FAC is also able to assist families interested in adoption from Korea and other Asian countries, Latin America and Eastern Europe, by coordinating services with out of State agencies.

Dear Birthmother,

 

Thank you for taking the time to read a little into our lives.

We wanted to take a little time to tell you about our life together and who we are as a family.

We’ve been committed to each other for the past 6 years. This past August, we were married in front of our closest friends and family. It was a beautiful ceremony and event filled with much love, love that will be extended to your child if you were to choose us to be the adoptive parents.

We have dreamt of having a family of our own for quite a long time. We have a beautiful home in a nice neighborhood, with lots of children and friendly neighbors and an amazing school system. We both have very flexible jobs that will allow us to raise a child with little help of daycare. Between the both of us, we have a very large family that is anxiously waiting for us to have the opportunity to be parents. With your help, the dream we have of becoming parents will become a reality.

Your bravery is so admirable. The difficult decision you have made is such a blessing, not only for your baby, but for people like us. You have chosen life, which can be the hardest thing to do. We are very thankful that you are thinking about letting us make that journey with your child. We will love, support, educate, and be the best parents any child could have. That is no joke or cliché. For a long time, we’ve discussed how we were raised and how we would want to raise a child. It’s incredible how far we are willing go through this journey we call life. Your child will know nothing but LOVE.

We are open books. You can ask us anything. We will do the same with any questions your child will have. Trust and honesty are very important in our lives. Your child will be able to come to us with their hopes, dreams, concerns, worries or anything. We will be there regardless. We will answer those tough questions, we will show them they are unconditionally loved and they will know that there is nothing they can’t accomplish without our support.  We will always strive to be the best parents. Nothing is too big or too small that we can’t accomplish together, as a family.

We know that it’s difficult to judge someone simply by a written letter.  But we want you to know that if you make the decision to let us raise your child as our own, we will always be grateful for the opportunity you have given to us and never take that opportunity for granted.  Between all of us, our child’s adoption story will be one of love.  We will always share the story of how their mother (and their father, with your permission) loved them so much that they wanted the best life for them and how they chose us to have that special privilege. 

Thank you again for reading our letter or even considering us to be parents.

We wish you happiness, love, success and many blessings!

Thank You!

Mike and Nick
