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.

Hi,

Our names are Dave and Mandy and we are very honored that you are taking the time to read about us. We have been happily married for sixteen years and feel fortunate to have the opportunity to adopt a baby. While we cannot imagine how difficult this process and decision is for you, we would like to express that we respect your consideration for providing this opportunity for your child.

We met in 1996 after graduating high school.  Dave lived around the corner from myolder sister and I would see him out mowing the lawn when taking my niece and nephew to the park. We started talking and three years later were married.  We honestly do not have a great love story to tell nor was there a whirlwind love affair. We just seemed to fit together and everyday life together was simple. Dave likes to say that we do a great job of balancing each other strengths and weaknesses.Our immediate family consists of two amazingly lovable Labrador Retrievers that mean the world to us, Bear and Cara.  Both sweet girls that keep us on our toes.  Almost all of our brothers, sisters, parents, nieces, and nephews live nearby which makes it easy to get together with them as often as possible. 

We have a three-bedroom, two-story home in a quiet neighborhood in the suburbs that is near parks and the local elementary school. Our backyard is protected with a privacy fence, has a garage, and a small garden in the back for a few fruits and vegetables. Mandy has a love of roses she got from her dad and has many rose bushes throughout the yard. A few years ago we planted a small tree in the middle of the yard which is finally getting big enough to add a little shade that the dogs love to lay in. We also recently added a large deck to the back of the house which is covered with a gazebo to relax under. The front of the house is lined with flower beds which add lots of color in the spring and summer months.

In the summer we like to spend time camping and fishing at every opportunity we can get away, but most summers we are able to escape at least three or four times and hope to share our love of the outdoors with kids. Dave enjoys playing hockey every week during the winter and enjoys golfing when warm enough (he says it’s relaxing).  Mandy enjoys taking the dogs out for long walks, quilting, cheering Dave on at his hockey games, and is hoping to learn to golf this spring so that she can see what all the fuss is about. Mandy also loves taking trips to the Zoo in the summer and spends so much time there she has her own membership.

Dave works full time as a Technology Consultant guiding organizations on how they can improve the security of their customer’s information.  Mandy is currently a Full-Time student working towards a degree in Accounting.  She takes several of her classes online allowing her the flexibility to work from home while Dave is at work.

Our desire is to have the opportunity to expressall of the love we share with a child, while also providing the encouragement and support that will allow them to grow and succeed.

Thank you again for taking this time to learn about us.

Sincerely,

Dave and Mandy
