Occasionally, expectant mothers or birth mothers will ask us at Kirsh & Kirsh, PC (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) this question. The answer is “No.” Adoption creates a legal parent-child relationship between the adoptive parents and the child just as if they had given birth to the child and permanently terminates the parent-child relationship between the birth parents and the child. If a birth mother is not ready to parent her newborn and does not want her parental rights terminated, she should look into having a friend, or family member appointed guardian of the child or foster care through a local adoption agency. 

If you would like to explore adoption, 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 themselves 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 in Google.

There are two ways can assure yourself that your baby will not go into foster care. Make sure the Department of Child Services in Indiana or a similar agency in your home state does not intervene in the adoption. Even if you have had other run-ins with DCS or used drugs during your pregnancy, if you make arrangements to give up your baby for adoption, or more correctly, make an adoption plan for your baby either within the first few hours after giving birth or before you deliver, you can probably avoid DCS involvement, which always involves foster care. The way to eliminate the possibility of your baby going to a foster home is to work with adoption professionals like Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”). The adoptions which Kirsh & Kirsh arranges NEVER involve a baby going into the foster care system. On the other hand, if you want to utilize foster care, you should contact a national adoption agency or a local adoption agency. While adoption agencies rarely use foster care, they license foster parents.

If you make any life decision based upon solid reasons, those reasons will bring comfort when you question your decision. However, even the most rational, well-thought-out, righteous decision can also cause sadness. Undoubtedly, every woman who has ever placed a baby for adoption has second-guessed themselves and experienced feelings of grief and sadness. Certainly, if you do not give up, or more correctly, make an adoption plan for, your baby, you will not suffer the grief and sadness that goes along parting with your child.  However, if handled correctly, the grief associated with placing a baby for adoption subsides. Like losing a close friend or relative to death, one does not forget the lost friend or relative, but the acute pain lessens over time. Many adoption counselors would say the same about the feelings of loss associated with adoption.

However, a woman who does not proceed with an adoption plan, does not assure herself of a lifetime of happiness as a parent. Parenting is hard in the best of circumstances. Parenting without long term support and resources (not just money) can cause a lifetime of grief and sadness. Watching a child grow up knowing that you are not providing your child with opportunities that will allow him or her to reach their potential in life can create feelings of guilty and intense sadness that do not diminish with time.

If you question your emotional, financial (and etc.) readiness to parent your soon-to-be-born baby, you should look into adoption with a reputable adoption agency or an experienced adoption attorney. Under Indiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky law and the laws of most states, even if you wanted to commit to an adoption before that baby is born, you cannot.

We at Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) work with expectant and birth mothers considering adoption throughout Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee and Indiana and have talked to many women like you. We have lots of loving, carefully screened and investigated, prospective, adoptive parents who cannot wait to welcome a baby into their hearts and homes. You will find that we are nice, knowledgeable, and completely non-judgmental. We never pressure you to choose adoption. We will treat you with kindness and respect. Frankly, many of the women with whom we talk and even meet decide not to proceed with an adoption plan. That’s fine. We will arrange for you to speak with a counselor and your own attorney, if you wish, at NO COST to you. At least then, you can make a better-informed decision – at decision you can live with.

You may contact us at Kirsh & Kirsh without cost or obligation on your part. Birth mothers NEVER pay a fee to Kirsh & Kirsh. See what we have to offer before making the most important decision of your life. You can call, text and or email us anytime. We answer our office phone, 317-575-5555, 24/7/365.
