Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) practice adoption law throughout Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky, including adoptions with other states. We help pregnant women find loving, secure, carefully screened homes for their babies and prospective adoptive parents find babies to welcome into their homes and hearts.

Kirsh & Kirsh provides the same adoption services as adoption agencies, except we do not perform adoptive home studies, supervise adoptive placements, or provide counseling. Wait, Kirsh & Kirsh does not provide counseling to expectant mothers? We do not employ a counselor on our staff because we think expectant mothers and birth mothers should have the option of speaking with an unbiased, independent counselor. We do, however, routinely refer women to reputable counseling providers. Likewise, we do not provide prenatal OB care, deliver babies, or perform newborn hearing tests, as Kirsh & Kirsh relies upon experts to handle those aspects of an adoption, birth, and postpartum care of newborns.

Unlike some adoption facilitators you might find on the Internet, we have a brick and mortar office, not just a virtual, Internet presence. Steve Kirsh started handling adoptions more than 35 years ago. Shortly thereafter Joel Kirsh, Steve’s brother joined him. More recently, Steve’s son, Grant Kirsh, and Steve’s other brother, Rob Kirsh, joined the practice. In addition to having 4 adoption attorneys, Kirsh & Kirsh has 7 other staff members, who also only work on adoption matters. On most days, you will find our four-legged, fury staff members at our office — Yogi and Hanna (depicted in the photo), Wilson, and Louie at the office. Honestly, they spend most of their time at the office asleep!

Do NOT believe anyone who tells you that giving a baby up for adoption, or more accurately, making an adoption plan for a baby is easy. IT IS NOT. There is no more difficult a decision than parting with a child – especially, the mother of a newborn who has felt the baby kick from the inside.

However, the decision has little, if anything, to do with wanting to make an adoptive placement. Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), have met with, and or spoken to, 1000s of expectant mothers and birth mothers over the last 35+ years. Women to do not proceed with adoptions because the want to do it. In fact, in the typical newborn adoption Kirsh & Kirsh handles, the birth mother does not have to proceed with an adoption. These are not like adoptions in which the Department of Children (“DCS”) Services involuntarily terminates parental rights as part of child in need of services (“CHINS”) proceedings.

So, if moms do not want to proceed with an adoption and nobody is forcing them to give up their babies for adoption, why do they do it? They LOVE their precious newborns and want more for their children than they feel that they can provide themselves at that moment in their lives. Parents put the needs of their children ahead of their own interests. That is what good parents do.  Most certainly, a birth mother will grieve the loss of her child when she proceeds with an adoption. If avoiding grief were the only consideration, women would never place babies for adoption.  Parenting involves many things — the most important include providing safe, loving homes and secure and happy futures for children. Most parents fulfill those obligations personally. Those who cannot, look to other options such as help from family and friends and adoptive placements, among other options.
