On first thought, this seems like an attractive option for a woman considering giving up her baby for adoption or, more correctly, making an adoption plan for the baby. Obviously, the birth mother knows the prospective adoptive parent and can be like a fly on the wall watching the child grow up. However, before making that decision, there are a few questions you might want to ask yourself: Of all of the prospective adoptive parents in the WORLD, is your best friend the best possible adoptive home you can imagine for your baby, or are you considering your best friend because she is your best friend or because you want the baby close? Would it be better to think about what is in your child’s best interests rather than your friend’s best interests or even your best interests?

Other important questions — what will happen to your relationship with your best friend if she thinks your child still looks at you, rather than her, as a mom? What if she is not okay with lying to the child about your true identity as the child’s mother rather than a “friend?”

As parents, our most important role is to protect our children and help them achieve their full potential. For some birth parents, they decide that adoption is in the best interests of their children.

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.

A birth mother has the sole right to decide how much, if any, time she spends with her baby in the hospital if she gives the baby up for adoption or, more correctly, makes an adoption plan for the baby. Neither under Indiana law nor the law of any other state can a woman sign a binding consent to adoption BEFORE she gives birth. Before signing a consent to adoption, the birth mother has total CONTROL, in the hospital, over how much time, if any, she chooses to spend with her baby. If an adoption agency or adoption attorney tells her otherwise, she needs to look for another adoption attorney or adoption agency to help her facilitate her adoption plan. We, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) respect a woman’s right to spend all of the time she wants with her baby in the hospital BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER she signs her consent to adoption. The adoptive parents represented by Kirsh & Kirsh understand that all women have different ways of saying goodbye to their babies. While nothing they do will make the goodbye EASY, they know that making her feel guilty about wanting to spend time with her baby or rushing a birth mother will make the process MORE DIFFICULT.
