To answer the second question first – ABSOLUTELY, we at Kirsh & Kirsh can help you find a fantastic, carefully screened and thoroughly investigated, loving home for your baby if you decide to give up your baby for adoption, or, more correctly stated, make an adoption plan for your soon-to-be-born or newborn baby.
Kirsh & Kirsh is an adoption-only law firm that helps both expectant mothers find loving homes for their precious children and newborns and hopeful adoptive parents find babies to adopt. It provides many of the same functions as a national adoption agency and local adoption agency but does not perform pre-adoptive home studies for prospective adoptive parents nor does it provide counseling for birth parents. Kirsh & Kirsh contracts with independent agencies and counselors to fulfill those roles. In terms of the number of successful adoptive placements and combined legal experience, Kirsh & Kirsh ranks highest among all adoption law firms in Indiana, the Midwest, and, perhaps, the country. The firm has more than 500, 5-Star Google reviews and over 12,000 followers on Facebook.
Steve Kirsh co-founded the firm in 1981 and began handling adoptions in the early 1980s. As the number of adoptions increased, Steve needed help, which is when Joel Kirsh, Steve’s brother got involved in facilitating adoptions. Steve served as president and treasurer of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys, an internationally recognized association of adoption and ARTs attorneys; received an Angels in Adoption Award by the United States Congress; represented the United States as part of the US delegation to the final drafting session of the Hague Convention on Inter-country Adoption; has made significant contributions to amending Indiana’s adoption laws, which a number of states have copied because Indiana’s laws are among the best in the country. For his efforts, the Indiana General Assembly afforded Steve special recognition. Steve also authored the Adoption Protocol used by nearly all Indiana Hospitals.
Joel Kirsh handles step-parent and family adoptions for the firm, in addition to assisting with newborn adoptions. His knowledge and experience make Joel a valuable member of Kirsh & Kirsh.
After graduating from law school in 2014, Grant Kirsh, Steve’s son, joined the firm and, in a short time, has become a leading attorney in the State of Indiana in foster care adoptions through the Indiana Department of Child Services, more commonly known as DCS.
Rob Kirsh joined Kirsh & Kirsh in 2018. In addition to being licensed to practice law in Indiana, Rob also holds law licenses in Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Michigan, expanding the adoption practice of Kirsh & Kirsh to most of the Midwest.
We, at Kirsh & Kirsh — or the “Kirsh Boys,” as the adoption attorneys at Kirsh & Kirsh are sometimes called, pride ourselves on answering questions about adoption and explaining the process without pressure or judgment. We cannot make adoption an easy choice, but we 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 – that way, you can make a well-informed decision.

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 in Google.
