If you have an unexpected pregnancy, unplanned pregnancy, unwanted pregnancy, or untimely pregnancy and are thinking about giving your baby up for adoption, or, more correctly, making an adoption plan for the baby, and you may want to think about the following:

  1. As much as you may want to “undo” the pregnancy, you cannot. Abortion will end the pregnancy but not change the fact of the pregnancy.  Therefore, you need to think about what impact the decision you make now will affect you going forward.
  2. If you were not trying to get pregnant and were not now pregnant, would this be the time in your life when you would plan to have a child?
  3. What goals do you have for yourself? How will raising a child or another child impact those goals? (If you don’t have goals for yourself – why not?)
  4. What goals do you have for the child you are now carrying? Does your parenting the child or making an adoption plan or another alternative give you the best chance of assuring that your child reaches those goals?

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.

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.

If you want to visit your child after you put my baby up for adoption or, more correctly, make an adoption plan for your baby, ask yourself this question: Do I want to see the child because I want to be a part of the child’s life or do I just want to see for myself that my child is okay?

If to remain a part of the child’s life, you should reconsider whether adoption is in the best interests of your child and your own best interests. If you proceed with an adoption, it is highly unlikely that you will have a meaningful enough relationship with the child to satisfy your need to remain a part of the child’s life, and you should be cautious of a national adoption agency, local adoption agency, or adoption facilitator who makes that promise to you. As a legal matter, adoption terminates the parental rights of the birth parents. 

However, if your desire to visit the child is to see for yourself that the child is doing well, you might want to consider whether photos, letters, and even videos might satisfy your needs. We at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, PC (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) have insisted that adoptive parents provide updates to their birth parents, and, with few exceptions, this arrangement has worked out well for all concerned. We advise adoptive parents to honestly assess what they will feel comfortable doing as to updates – that way, birth parents are never disappointed if the adoptive parents under-promise and over-deliver when agreeing to provide letters and photographs to birth parents. 

If you 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 themselves on answering questions about adoption and explaining the process without pressure or judgment.
