03 Dec I Am Thinking About Giving My Baby Up For Adoption — When Should I Begin Looking Into Adoption?
We at Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) have helped literally THOUSANDS of women, over the past 35+ years, who have an unplanned pregnancy or untimely pregnancy. It is never too early or late to explore adoption. At Kirsh & Kirsh, we welcome birth mothers to contact us whenever they want the information — whether they have just received a positive pregnancy test, have already given birth, or anytime in between. Looking into adoption and putting a baby up for adoption or, more correctly, making an adoption plan for a baby ARE NOT THE SAME. We will provide you information about adoption, how it works, what you can expect to happen, and profiles of waiting families — without cost or obligation on your part. In other words, talking with us does not commit you to anything. Under the laws of Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, Indiana, and most states, an expectant mother cannot legally commit to an adoption until after she gives birth, even she wanted to sign a consent to adoption beforehand.
If you are not absolutely certain you are ready to parent your soon-to-be-born baby and think adoption might be option, you should get as much information as soon as possible. That way, you will know whether adoption is a viable option. If it is not, you can cross it off your list of options and focus your attention elsewhere. On the other hand, after learning about adoption, if adoption might answer your prayers, you can pursue it further. Again, understanding that no decision about adoption becomes final until after you give birth and sign a consent to adoption.
At Kirsh & Kirsh, we will always treat you will kindness and respect. We will never pressure you or make you feel badly about whatever decision you make.
You can call, text and or email us anytime. To contact us—call: 317-575-5555/text: 317-721-2030/email: AdoptionSupport@kirsh.com/ Facebook message: https://www.facebook.com/KirshandKirsh/. We answer our office phone, 24 hours a day, every single day. We try to respond to emails and text messages within minutes of receipt.
