This question occupies the minds of many, if not all, birth parents who consider giving their newborns and older children up for adoption, or more correctly, making an adoption plan for their child/children. It would be hard not to have such a concern. However, while a parent may consider their child’s opinion about a decision, a parent MUST make decisions based upon what the parent believes serves the child’s best interests, even if the child believes otherwise. Effective parenting is not about garnering the child’s approval but doing what the PARENT believes best serves the child’s present and future well-being. This is especially true as the size of the decision increases. If a parent occasionally allows their child to stay up late rather than going to bed at a reasonable hour, deferring to the child may result in a cranky, tired child the next morning, but it will have little long-term impact on the child’s life. But always allowing a child to spend time playing video games instead of doing their homework will have big consequences for the child’s future. A birth mother who believes that an adoptive home gives her child the best chance to realize his or her full potential, as a productive member of society is UNQUESTIONABLY a course of action that a birth mother needs to make regardless of what the child may think of the decision at some future time. So, in direct answer to the question posed above –your child may not understand why you put the child up for adoption, but, as a parent you must do what YOU believe is best for the child. By the way, it is also quite possible that in the right adoptive home, where you as the birth mother are celebrated for the being the hero that you are, the child may very well come to love you for the 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 mom’s search results in Google.

Great Question and a reason you should work with an experienced, ethical adoption professional, whether it is a national adoption agency, local adoption agency, or adoption professionals like the adoption law firm of Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (Kirsh & Kirsh). The four Kirsh attorneys have over 100 years of combined legal experience arranging adoptions. Also, Kirsh & Kirsh has been in existence since 1981 and has over 600 5-star Google reviews. 

Secondly, you should consider a wide variety of prospective adoptive parents. It is not likely you would marry the first person you dated! If your best friend tells you that she knows a family who wants to adopt and you choose that family, you have based your decision on the recommendation of, perhaps, a well-intentioned friend, but probably not a person qualified to determine if her friend has the qualifications to adopt much less provide the necessary opportunities, support, and guidance for your child to live a productive, happy life.  Again, the experience of Kirsh & Kirsh will provide you with additional peace of mind.

Thirdly, adoption professionals like Kirsh & Kirsh will give you the opportunity to read about, talk with, and even meet prospective adoptive parents, if you wish. Trust your instincts. It will not take long for you to feel a connection with prospective adoptive parents or not. 

Lastly, and most importantly you need to understand that in life, there are no guarantees about anything. Frankly, if you are being honest with yourself, you will realize there are no guarantees that if you decide to parent your child, you will have made the best decision for your child. All you can do with any important life-decision is gather as much information as possible, trust your instincts, and have faith that things will work out for the best.

Receiving living expenses and getting money for the baby are NOT the same. Neither Indiana nor any other state allows adoptive parents to give a birth mother money for the baby. In fact, doing so would constitute the crime of “baby selling” in many states. As an example, Indiana Code § 35-46-1-9 makes it a felony to receive or pay moneyfor the baby. However, like many states, Indiana allows adoptive parents to give a birth mother or an expectant mother living expenses to help her with her pregnancy-related expenses during her pregnancy and for the postpartum period.

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.

“Open adoption” does not have a set, universally understood definition. It is best to think of openness in in an adoption as a spectrum – at one end of the spectrum, adoptions are completely closed or confidential, meaning the exchange of no information. Neither the adoptive parents nor birth parents know ANYTHING AT ALL about the other. At the other end of the spectrum is a completely open arrangement in which the parties plan to raise the adoptee together, also called “Cooperative Parenting,” and know EVERYTHING about each other. In our vast experience of having arranged adoptions for nearly 40 years, we at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) have not seen ANY adoptions at either end of the spectrum. All adoptions which we have facilitated fall somewhere between the ends of the spectrum. Because we do NOT follow the “one size fits all” approach, we tailor each adoption to the desires and needs of the parties involved in that adoption. However, almost all the adoptions which we facilitate include the exchange of information sufficient to enable the birth mother and birth father, if he is involved, to know that she or they have selected the BEST POSSIBLE family to raise their baby and for the adoptive parents not only to have medical information which will help them care for the child but whatever other background information the birth parents want to share to satisfy the child’s curiosity about his or her roots when as the child gets older and hears their adoption story.

In most cases, we, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, file all adoptions in Indiana because Indiana has very favorable adoption laws. To file an adoption in Indiana, we need an Indiana connection to the adoption – the adoptive parents or birth mother need to live in Indiana.  Among other benefits to birth mothers, Indiana adoption law allows a birth mother to sign her consent to adoption any time after the birth of the child, does NOT require the birth parents to physically go to court to give their consents to the adoption, and a birth mother does NOT have to identify the father of the child. Therefore, if an expectant mother from outside of Indiana, who wants to look into putting her baby up for adoption, or, more correctly making an adoption plan for her unborn baby, contacts us, we will try to match her with one of our waiting, prospective adoptive parent families from Indiana.

In general, adoption professionals avoid expressing an opinion about abortion or Roe v. Wade because banning or limiting abortion seems self-serving in that it would obviously make more babies available for adoption. In this Blog, we at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) are not advocating for the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the United States Supreme Court but simply stating statistical facts. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported that approximately 625,000 women have abortions each year. According to the National Council for Adoption Factbook, there were just over 18,000 unrelated, domestic adoptions of newborns a year.  If 10% of those women who had abortions gave their babies up for adoption, or more correctly, made adoption plans for their babies, the number of unrelated domestic adoptions would have INCREASED by 62,500 per year – 350%.

If the United States Supreme Court determines that the United States Constitution does not include the right to have an abortion, some states will impose substantial restrictions or limitations on the availability of abortion. In those states, the number of babies available for adoption will increase. However, it is NOT the obligation of pregnant women considering abortion to put up their babies for adoption. A woman facing an unplanned or untimely pregnancy undoubtedly faces the most difficult, gut-wrenching decision one could imagine. Ultimately, she will have to determine what is in her best interests. A woman, who believes that life begins at conception, will also take into consideration the best interests of her unborn child.

If you face an unplanned or untimely pregnancy and 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 ourselves on answering questions about adoption and explaining the process without pressure or judgment.

“Giving away” suggests that you are discarding, of getting rid of, your baby, as you might with an old pair of sneakers. A birth mother who has the courage, strength, and fortitude to entrust the life of her precious child to another set of parents is NOT one who has GIVEN AWAY her child. She has put her child’s needs to have a loving, secure, home, with a lifetime of opportunities ahead of her own breaking heart. Several years ago, a birth mother said to us, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”): “I have ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD for my baby, but LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH. I know that given where I am in my life, I will not have the time to give my child the attention that it needs.” At the time, the woman was a full-time nursing student. After placing up her baby for adoption, or more correctly, making an adoption plan for her baby, she completed her nursing degree.

If your friend thinks assuring your child will grow up in a happy, loving home with devoted parents who have the resources and time to attend to your child’s wants and needs is “giving away” the baby, your friend needs to rethink their choice of words, or you need to rethink how much weight you give to your friend’s words.

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 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.

Not surprising that you are confused! If you have never given up a baby for adoption, or more correctly, made an adoption plan for a baby, how could you possibly know what to do? This is the case because most of the information you get from your friends is probably wrong or biased toward their personal feelings about adoption. The media does not help much either – it only reports on the bad cases, much like it’s reporting about airliners. The media only reports airplane crashes. Apparently, passengers who arrive safely at their destinations do not make interesting stories.

Birth fathers have rights, but some states like Indiana put the burden on the father of the baby to protect his own parental rights. The extent to which the burden is on the father, the adoptive parents, or the birth mother depends on the state in which the adoptive parents file the adoption. We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), try to file all adoptions for our adoptive parent clients in Indiana, even those involving births outside of Indiana. We can file an adoption in Indiana if the adoptive parents live in Indiana or the child is coming to, or in, Indiana. By filing the adoption in Indiana, we follow Indiana law, which does NOT require the birth mother to identify the father of the child unless he is her husband or has formally established paternity of the child. If the mother got pregnant in Indiana or a state with a putative father registry, the father of the baby has the obligation to look after his own rights and would need to register with the putative father registry in the state where the birth mother conceived the child. For a child conceived outside of Indiana, but adopted in Indiana, the father of the baby would NOT have to know to register with the putative father registry in Indiana. He could register with the putative father registry in the state of conception, if that state has a putative father registry, or PFR, as it is sometimes called. Also, for most Indiana adoptions, the birth mother’s name would NOT be published in a newspaper as required in some states without a putative father registry. A state that requires the adoptive parents to publish the birth mother’s name in the newspaper places the burden on the adoptive parents to give notice to the father rather than giving the father a way, like a putative father registry, to self-protect his parental rights.

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. They cannot make adoption an easy choice, but they 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.
