01 Apr AM I OLD ENOUGH TO ADOPT A NEWBORN?
This morning, we, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) received inquiries through our website,www.LovingAdoptions.com, from 19- and 18-year-olds, looking into adopting newborns and wanted to know if they were old enough to adopt. Indiana adoption statutes do not state for adoptive parents. However, as adoption attorneys, we can decide whom we wish to represent as prospective adoptive parents, and we do not have to accept as clients everyone who contacts us. We hold to the belief that we would not represent prospective adoptive parents, whom we would not feel comfortable adopting our own children. Additionally, our 4 adoption attorneys know, from our 90 years of combined experience practicing adoption law in Indiana, that women thinking about putting up their babies for adoption, or more correctly making an adoption plan for their children, will not choose a couple or individual to adopt, if the birth mother or expectant mother is not certain of the couple’s or individual’s ability to provide their babies with a stable, loving home, and bright future. Being a great parent takes many attributes, including love, time, commitment, knowledge, skill, patience, understanding, and life experiences. LOVE ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH. If it were, a pregnant woman would never give up their babies for adoption. We KNOW that expectant mothers and birth mothers have all the LOVE IN THE WORLD for their babies. In fact, love for their babies is the primary factor for a birth parent to proceed with adoption because they have determined that they lack the other attributes to successfully parent their soon-to-be-born or already-born babies. In fact, most of the birth mothers whom we assist in finding adoptive homes for the babies are older than late teens themselves. National adoption agencies, local adoption agencies, and other adoption attorneys may have other adoption requirements, but at Kirsh & Kirsh, we want our adoptive parent clients to have completed their educations, gotten themselves established in their careers, and if a married couple, have marital stability.

POSITIVE ADOPTION LANGUAGE DISCLAIMER: Please understand that these blog posts are written in a way to use language that people use when searching for help with their adoption plans. Unfortunately, while all of us understand what positive adoption language means, most expectant moms that come to us at first do not understand what that means. The most common search term on the Internet for expectant moms is “how do I give up my baby for adoption”. If we do not include those words in our blog posts, and instead put “how do I create an adoption plan for my baby” then our website will not show up in most expectant mom’s search results in Google.
