If you are experiencing an unplanned or untimely pregnancy, you probably feel overwhelmed. That’s completely normal. You have probably never been involved in an adoption. The unknown scares all of us. Unfortunately, no one can make your decision EASY, but there are ways to make it EASIER. One way to make it easier is to get correct information about adoption – not what your friends or family may tell you, not what you might have seen on TV or in the movies, not even what you might have found on the Internet. It is hard enough to make a well-reasoned decision without information, and even harder, if you are not sure that the information you have received is correct. The “Kirsh Boys,” as the adoption attorneys at Kirsh & Kirsh are nationally known, have 90 years of combined legal experience in arranging adoptions in a compassionate, caring, non-judgmental way. Even though they will not act as your attorneys, they, along with their full-time staff of adoption professionals, all of whom are women, will provide you CORRECT information about adoption, without cost or obligation to you. Talking to them does not mean you have to work with them or ever talk with them again, but they will answer your questions and provide you reliable information about adoption.
They represent a wide variety of carefully screened and fully investigated prospective adoptive parents – straight, gay, lesbian, single, and married, from all over the country, who cannot wait to welcome a baby into their homes and hearts, and who will recognize you as the HERO you truly are. With them as parents, your child will grow up knowing that you put your child’s needs ahead of your own breaking heart.
Not only can choose an open or closed adoption, but you can have as much or as little involvement in the selection of adoptive parents for your precious baby as you want, without cost or obligation on your part. NOTHING you do before you give birth obligates you to proceed with an adoption. The only thing that obligates you to proceed with an adoption is to sign a consent to adoption, which you CANNOT do until after you give birth. None of us at Kirsh & Kirsh will pressure you to sign a consent to adoption or make you feel badly if you choose to parent your baby. THAT DECISION IS ENTIRELY YOURS.
Regardless of the amount of openness that you prefer, you can rest assured that your child will always know of you and know your story, and the incredible sacrifice you made to see that your child received a bright future, with a world of opportunities, in a loving, secure, happy home. By choosing adoption, you will have joined forces with another loving family to provide the child with unconditional love and a life full of opportunity.
