Recently, a birth mother contacted us at Loving Adoptions by Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) through www.LovingAdoptions.com, and asked us that question. We responded:
“Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we are probably not your best adoption. We do not do temporary adoptions. However, we do open adoptions in which the adoptive parents would provide you letters and photos for 18 years letting you know how the child is getting along. Some of our clients may be open to a limited amount of visitation during the first few years, but in any adoption, we handle, the adoption would terminate your parental rights and make the adoptive parents the legal parents of your child. If you decide to work with us, you could choose the adoptive parents from a carefully screened and fully investigated group of prospective adoptive parents. You could talk with them by telephone and meet them in person if you wish. If you decide that an adoption like the one, I described is best the way to assure that your child receives the life and future you want for your child, please let us know. I wish you well.”
Under the laws of Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, Michigan, Indiana, and probably every other state, adoption creates a legal, permanent parent-child relationship between the adoptive parent(s) and the child and terminates the parental rights of the birth parents.
We, at Kirsh & Kirsh — or 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 ourselves on answering questions about adoption and explaining the process without pressure or judgment.

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 moms’ search results on Google.
