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.

We are Shawn and Kate and are extremely excited that you want to know more about us.  We have wanted children since we were married, but after trying to get pregnant and exploring our options, we came to agree that adoption is our best option.  The nursery is ready and waiting for the baby that we’ve dreamed of.

About Shawn–by Kate:

For me, I knew by the end of the first date that Shawn was the one!  His big, brown eyes give me goosebumps every time he looks at me.  Shawn loves learning new things and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty.  Shawn is very logical and I am very creative, which is why it works well. Shawn has a huge heart which he has no problem sharing with others.  He is always the first person to volunteer to help others in need, whether it be a close friend or building a house for Habitat for Humanity. His smile and laugh are contagious and his ability to make me laugh and smile no matter what kind of mood I’m in is one of the qualities that simply amaze me.

About Kate–by Shawn:

Kate was born in Cincinnati and was adopted shortly after birth and grew up only 20 minutes away from me.  It’s hard to believe our paths never crossed!  Once Kate caught my eye and I met her in person, I realized that for the first time, my search may be over.  Kate always amazes me with her different creative projects and her knack of finding just the perfect gift for someone.  She too, can make me laugh–though sometimes it’s because of some predicament she’s gotten herself into.  It’s great to have such a partner to go through life with.  We can’t wait to be raising a child together.

We both have wonderful, supportive families who cannot wait to meet our child.  We have a HUGE support system of friends who have known us since the beginning of our relationship.  They are ecstatic that we have chosen to become parents.

We want to thank you for wanting to learn about us.  We know that we will never understand the difficult decisions that you have made and have yet to make, but want you to know that we pray for you every morning and evening.  Please know that we are forever grateful for you, for you are and will always be The Birth Mother.
