While likely not the first thing a birth mother contemplates putting her baby up for adoption or, more correctly, making an adoption plan, it is something to consider. Not many times in our lives do we get “do-overs.” We often find ourselves in a situation when we think to ourselves, “Next time I will know better or do it differently.” If you put up your baby for adoption through a local adoption agency, national adoption agency, or adoption professionals like Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), you get the chance to change the trajectory of your life. Imagine the range of things you could do if you did not have the responsibility of caring for a baby until the child reaches adulthood – while knowing that you have given a family the most precious gift one human being can give another – a child. Also, knowing that you have given your child the gift of devoted, loving parents, who can give your child everything you would want for her or him.

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.

The answer depends on the state in which you live and whether you and the father of the baby are married or have been married to each other in roughly the year preceding the birth of the baby.  Because we, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), have our main office in Indiana, we can file most of the adoptions we facilitate in Indiana, even if the birth mother or expectant mother lives in Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Michigan, or any other state. Indiana has among the best adoption laws in the country. Under Indiana law, an expectant or birth mother does NOT have to identify the father of the child. Indiana law enables a birth father to take the initiative to protect his parental rights if he so desires, by means of the Indiana Putative Father Registry. In 2020, the Indiana General Assembly enacted a bill that extended the concept of the Indiana Putative Father Registry to any state that has its own Putative Father Registry. If a woman conceives a child in any of the twenty-seven states with Putative Father Registries, we, at Kirsh & Kirsh, can file the adoption in Indiana and rely on the Putative Father Registry in the state of in which the woman got pregnant to address the birth father’s parental rights, without the birth mother having to identify him. However, under Indiana law, the Putative Father Registry does not apply to those men who have established paternity by in a court action or by executing a paternity affidavit or to husbands of birth mothers.
