06 Jul IF I PUT MY BABY UP FOR ADOPTION, CAN I PICK THE ADOPTIVE FAMILY?
ABSOLUTELY, if you work with Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”). Years ago, pregnant women, with untimely pregnancies or unplanned pregnancies would go to adoption agencies to give up for adoption their babies, or more correctly, make adoption plans for their newborns. The agencies, using their own criteria, decided who would adopt a woman’s baby, with little or no input from her. Adoption Law Firms like Kirsh & Kirsh understood that pregnant women wanted to decide for themselves who would adopt. Of course, they wanted the prospective adoptive parents to undergo careful screening and investigation, but the expectant mothers, who would be entrusting the lives of their precious babies to a family, found greater peace if they could direct which family adopted. Now, almost all local adoption agencies and national adoption agencies follow the model that Kirsh & Kirsh pioneered in Indiana nearly 40 years ago and give the birth parents the option of choosing the adoptive parents.
We at Kirsh & Kirsh have lots of wonderful, carefully screened, loving families, FROM INDIANA AND ALL OVER THE COUNTRY (married, single, Lesbian, and Gay) who cannot wait to welcome a baby into their hearts and homes and are happy to assist with living expenses to the full extent allowed by law.
The “Kirsh Boys,” as the adoption attorneys at Kirsh & Kirsh, are sometimes called – Steve, and his brothers, Joel and Rob, and his son, Grant – pride themselves on answering questions about adoption and explaining the process without pressure or judgment. They cannot make adoption an easy choice, but they can make it less scary by removing some of the unknowns. Ultimately, a birth parent will have to decide if adoption is in their own best interests and the best interests of their child. We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, will not and cannot make that decision for anyone, but we can provide information and answers to questions.

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.
