Of course, not all adoption agencies and adoption attorneys share the same philosophy, but we, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) welcome a birth father’s cooperation in an adoption. However, not often is the father of the baby as interested in planning an adoption as he was at being present for the conception of the baby.
Yesterday, I met an expectant birth mother and birth father. The father fully supported the expectant mother’s desire to explore adoption for their baby, due to be born any day. He listened closely as I explained what they could expect if they decided to give up the baby for adoption, or, more correctly, make an adoption plan for the baby.
Under Indiana Adoption Law, a birth mother cannot sign a consent to adoption prior to a child’s birth, but the birth father can sign. He wanted to sign the consent at the time of our meeting, in case he could not make it to the hospital when the birth mother would sign her consent to the adoption. Not only did he have a full-time job, he thought he might have to care for their other children, while the mother of the baby was hospitalized for the birth.
He wanted to participate in selecting the adoptive parents from the profiles I gave to them and thought he might like to meet them. He said he would be happy to complete a background form like the one the mother will complete so that his child and the adoptive parents will have important medical and social history information, about him, as well as the mother of the baby.

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.
