We, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) get asked this question often. We cannot answer for national adoption agencies nor local adoption agencies, but at Kirsh & Kirsh, we try to make the process as straightforward and simple as possible without unnecessary meetings and paperwork. While we will only arrange to place a newborn child up for adoption completely above-board and legally, we do not want to overly burden a birth mother or an expectant mother who already must deal with more than her fair share of stress. 

In the simple terms, in choosing to work with us to give up your baby for adoption, or, more correctly, make an adoption plan for your newborn, you can expect the following:

  1. Meet us in person on the phone, over Zoom, or fill out your information electronically.
  2. Pick a family from profiles we will send to you, talk, text, or meet that family and decide if you want us to match with them with you. Or we will choose the family if you prefer. 
  3. There are a few documents that we will ask you to complete and sign before the baby’s birth –none of which are a consent to adoption. You cannot sign a consent to adoption until after you give birth. In other words, you are not obligated to proceed with the adoption by doing the paperwork. 
  4. You decide if you want to talk with a counselor and have your own attorney.
  5. After you give birth, you will decide if you want to proceed with the adoption. If so, we will arrange for you to sign the consent to adoption. If not, we will go our separate ways. We will never pressure you to proceed or criticize you if you decide to parent the baby. We want you to do whatever YOU believe is best for you and your baby. 

The entire process costs you nothing, and you are not obligated to proceed with the adoption plan you have put together, unless and until you sign a consent to adoption, after you give birth.

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.

If you have an unexpected pregnancy, unplanned pregnancy, unwanted pregnancy, or untimely pregnancy and are thinking about giving your baby up for adoption, or, more correctly, making an adoption plan for the baby, and you may want to think about the following:

  1. As much as you may want to “undo” the pregnancy, you cannot. Abortion will end the pregnancy but not change the fact of the pregnancy.  Therefore, you need to think about what impact the decision you make now will affect you going forward.
  2. If you were not trying to get pregnant and were not now pregnant, would this be the time in your life when you would plan to have a child?
  3. What goals do you have for yourself? How will raising a child or another child impact those goals? (If you don’t have goals for yourself – why not?)
  4. What goals do you have for the child you are now carrying? Does your parenting the child or making an adoption plan or another alternative give you the best chance of assuring that your child reaches those goals?

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.

Our contact information is below.  We will answer your questions and provide you the information you seek, without cost or obligation on your part. In other words, talking to us is FREE and does NOT mean you ever have to talk or text with us, again. The Kirsh Boys have 90 YEARS OF COMBINED EXPERIENCE practicing adoption law. We can help you find an AMAZING, WONDERFUL, adoptive home for your precious baby, whether you live in Russiaville or Kokomo, Columbus or Indianapolis, Evansville or Connersville, or Richmond or Ft. Wayne, or any Indiana county or city in between, or ANYWHERE in Tennessee, Mississippi, or Kentucky.
