If I Am Placing My Baby For Adoption Do I Have To Speak With A Counselor?

Some adoption agencies and states require adoption counseling for pregnant women considering placing their baby for adoption. We, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), do not require that the pregnant women, who have contacted us to help them find an adoptive family for their babies, participate in counseling. We offer counseling and, in fact, recommend counseling, but we do not require it. It can be overwhelming for a woman with an unplanned pregnancy to force her into counseling if she does not want to have any. Therefore Kirsh & Kirsh does not require it, whether you live in Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, or Kentucky.

Does Kirsh & Kirsh recommend counseling and make it available? Yes, of course! Over the last 35+ years of handling adoptions, involving numerous birth parents, we have found that those birth parents who make a parenting or adoption plan based on good reasons come to peace with their decision more easily than those who make a decision based solely upon emotions. Making a well-reasoned decision allows a mom to validate her decision by reviewing her reasons and knowing that while she may have second thoughts, her reasons are still valid, and, therefore, she made the right decision. A woman who lets her heart rather than her head guide her decision will have nothing to fall back on when her emotions fade, as emotions usually do.
