Whether you're considering placing your baby for adoption or looking to adopt a child, we welcome general questions about our adoption services and consultation ​request. 

Adoption Types

Agency Adoption

Agency Adoption is an adoption where a state licensed agency matches the adoptive parents with birth parents. 

Independent Adoption

Independent adoption is when birth parents and adoptive parents find one another through a source other than an adoption agency. 

Stepparent Adoption

Stepparent adoption is a situation in which a stepparent adopts the child of his or her current spouse.  In order for a stepparent adoption to occur, one parent must give up his or her biological rights.

Relative Adoption

Relative Adoption is the legal adoption of a child by a biological relative. Relative adoptions are not the same as stepparent adoptions.

Adult Adoption

Adult adoption is the legal process of adopting a person over the age of 18. 

Intrastate Adoption

Intrastate adoption is when both the placing and receiving parents are from the same state.

Interstate Adoption

Interstate adoption is when the placing parents reside in a different state from the receiving parents.

Hannah Fawbush


I am a licensed Kentucky attorney that specializes in adoption law.  After graduating from the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law, I started practicing family law.  Over time I found myself drawn to adoption work, where I felt strong personal connections with birth parents and adoptive parents. In doing this I feel a sense of great accomplishment finding loving and safe homes for children.
