In many states, it is not possible, but it depends on the state in which the adoption attorney or adoption agency files the adoption and what the birth mother signed allowing the child to be placed for adoption. If the birth mother signed a consent to adoption in Indiana, Indiana law does not give a birth parent the right to change the right to change their mind and get the child back. Most Indiana adoption agencies, national adoption agencies, and Indiana adoption attorneys, Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), included, will have the birth mother confirm her consent to adoption for the court in Indiana adoptions. If a birth mother confirms her consent to adoption for the judge in Indiana by telephone, Zoom, or in person, Indiana Adoption statutes do not provide a way to withdraw her consent to adoption and get the baby back. If the birth mother has not confirmed her consent to adoption for the court, the birth mother could, within 30 days of signing the consent, file a motion with the court, ask the court for a hearing, and, at that hearing attempt to prove the child’s best interests dictate that the court allow her to withdraw her consent. In the many newborn adoptions Kirsh & Kirsh has facilitated, rarely, has a birth mother tried to withdraw her consent, largely because Kirsh & Kirsh does not pressure women to sign consents to adoption and gives them plenty of opportunity not to sign the consent to adoption, up to and including during the consent to adoption signing.

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.
