Hello! My name is Stacey Levine and I have been in the adoption field as a social worker for almost 20 years. You might say I am obsessed with adoption. The whole thing...birth parents, adoptive parents, and adoptees. There is something special in adoption and I am so happy to be a part of it all. If you need assistance with an Adoption, Home Study, or Placement. I would be happy to help you in anyway possible.
Stacey Levine came
into our lives 5 years ago, when we were hoping to adopt a baby. When all of
our paperwork was complete, we waited for a call. Shortly thereafter, I was
stepping onto my uncle’s sailboat when my phone rang…it was Stacey! She was on
vacation, and took the time to call us and share that we had been chosen by a birth
mom! We were overwhelmed by her thoughtfulness to contact us while she was
away. While that adoption didn’t work out, Stacey assured us that she would
always have our best interests at heart, and she would bring the right baby to
Not long after, my husband and I were in New York. When we got back to our hotel room, there was a message from Stacey to call her right away. We had been chosen, and were having a boy! She arranged for us to speak to the birth mom, and guided us through every step of the process. We had somewhat of a difficult time with the birth mom, but thanks to Stacey, she sees the best in EVERYONE, so was able to make the adoption process much less scary and so much more comforting. I had put so much faith and trust in her, and she never let us down. She has a tireless work ethic, calling us just to see how we were doing, and if we needed anything (we live in Canada, she in the US), and having her as our social worker meant we were finally going to have the baby we had always wanted.
Adoption is an extremely emotional and trying time for all involved; Stacey puts her heart and soul into every adoption she takes on, and she will be a part of our lives forever. She is incredibly intelligent, kind, thoughtful, and one of the most incredible people I have ever met. Today, we have a healthy, happy and gorgeous 4 year old boy. Not a day goes by that I take him for granted, and I have (the birth mom) and Stacey to thank for that.
When we began our second adoption journey, one of the most important things to us was the care of the expectant mom we matched with. As an adoptive mom and an adoption professional, my heart was filled with gratitude as I watched the genuine kindness, love, and respect Stacey showed our daughter's birth mom.
Stacey went above and beyond throughout the pregnancy, time at the hospital, and post-pardum recovery of our daughter's birth mom. Even more amazingly, Stacey continues to be a source of encouragement and support for her as the days and months go by. I wish that every mom considering adoption had the gift of working with Stacey.

I've known Stacey for five years, she has been a great guide, supporter and cheerleader during our whole adoption process. Starting with the initial home study, Stacey asked questions that helped me better evaluate alternatives. She supported me during the three years of wait and renewals encouraging me with precisely the words I needed when I didn't know how much longer I had to wait. And after bringing my child home, she has continued to be a source of knowledge through our post placement visits. To top it all, Stacey is a joy to be around and I love spending time with her. I cannot think of anyone with more and better experience and a bigger heart for adoption than Stacey, and I'm lucky and grateful to have her in our lives.

It seems like I’ve known you forever but it’s really been a little more than 2 years. Like so many people, our path to adoption has not been a straight line. I would guess that ours has had a few more twists and turns than most though. Shortly after meeting you and “officially” starting our adoption journey we moved out of state and said goodbye to you. Then we moved to another state. And did a homestudy. And then we moved to another state. And did a homestudy. And then we came back to Florida. And when I talked to you, I felt like I’d never left. You have been so warm, compassionate and grounding during our adoption process. You helped me believe it would happen for us. And you were right!

My name is Kim R. and you helped us last year adopt 2 children from Danielle F. We were just going through our pictures and celebrating our year anniversary and I thought of you. We had such a hard match process and everything was so confusing. Every person we talked to just confused us more. It was very stressful. But it all changed when you called us. I often tell our story and include you in it because if it were not for you I’m not sure how it would have gone. You were wonderful and incredibly helpful. You were the only person that gave us straight answers. We were so very grateful for you during those crazy first weeks. I am sorry that I didn’t tell you this sooner but you were wonderful and we will always remember how helpful and kind you were. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!! We thank God for you. I hope you are doing well these days!
