Local adoption agencies have changed the way they do adoptions to be more like the adoptions arranged by Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh” but often misspelled as “Kirsch & Kirsch”). When Adoption Attorney Steve Kirsh started helping birth mothers find adoptive homes for their newborns more than 40 years ago, adoption agencies made most adoptive placements. What was socially acceptable was very different then. In those days, when a woman, usually a teenager, found herself with an untimely pregnancy, unplanned pregnancy, or unwanted pregnancy, her family would send her away to a maternity home run by an adoption agency. At that time being single and pregnant brought great shame to the family. Girls would live in the adoption agency’s maternity home for their whole pregnancy to save their families the embarrassment of having an unmarried, pregnant girl in the family. The adoption agency would decide THE FAMILY THE AGENCY WANTED TO ADOPT the baby based upon factors the AGENCYthought important, often related to the religious affiliation of the adoption agency. As an example, Lutheran-supported agencies would make adoptive placements with Lutheran adoptive parents. Birth mothers had no say in who adopted their babies, received no information about the adoptive families, and the adoptive parents did not provide updates to the birth mothers throughout the children’s lives. 

Adoption Attorney Steve Kirsh realized adoptions could be handled more compassionately for womenconsidering giving their babies up for adoption or more correctly making adoption plans for their babies. He was the first to give information to birth mothers about prospective adoptive parents FOR THE BIRTH MOTHER TO CHOOSE THE FAMILY SHE WANTED TO ADOPT her baby. The birth mothers who came to Kirsh & Kirsh were the first to have the opportunity to talk with and then meet families interested in adopting. Kirsh & Kirsh required the adoptive parents whom they represented to undergo pre-adoptive screening and counseling even before Indiana law made that a requirement to adopt.  

Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh continue to look for ways to make the adoption process easier for birth mothers to navigate by not requiring burdensome, unnecessary meetings, counseling sessions, and procedures. Of course, Kirsh & Kirsh sees that the adoptive placements they arrange meet all legal requirements and birth mothers receive legal advice and emotional support from experienced attorneys and counselors — based upon the needs of individual birth mothers as opposed to a policy set by the board of directors of a local adoption agency or national adoption agencies.

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.

We, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) get asked this question often. We cannot answer for national adoption agencies nor local adoption agencies, but at Kirsh & Kirsh, we try to make the process as straightforward and simple as possible without unnecessary meetings and paperwork. While we will only arrange to place a newborn child up for adoption completely above-board and legally, we do not want to overly burden a birth mother or an expectant mother who already must deal with more than her fair share of stress. 

In the simple terms, in choosing to work with us to give up your baby for adoption, or, more correctly, make an adoption plan for your newborn, you can expect the following:

  1. Meet us in person on the phone, over Zoom, or fill out your information electronically.
  2. Pick a family from profiles we will send to you, talk, text, or meet that family and decide if you want us to match with them with you. Or we will choose the family if you prefer. 
  3. There are a few documents that we will ask you to complete and sign before the baby’s birth –none of which are a consent to adoption. You cannot sign a consent to adoption until after you give birth. In other words, you are not obligated to proceed with the adoption by doing the paperwork. 
  4. You decide if you want to talk with a counselor and have your own attorney.
  5. After you give birth, you will decide if you want to proceed with the adoption. If so, we will arrange for you to sign the consent to adoption. If not, we will go our separate ways. We will never pressure you to proceed or criticize you if you decide to parent the baby. We want you to do whatever YOU believe is best for you and your baby. 

The entire process costs you nothing, and you are not obligated to proceed with the adoption plan you have put together, unless and until you sign a consent to adoption, after you give birth.
