In our 40 years of experience helping birth mothers find loving, secure, adoptive homes for their newborn babies, we, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh” but often misspelled as “Kirsch & Kirsch”), KNOW that women who give up their babies for adoption (or more correctly, make an adoption plan for their children), LOVE their babies with all their hearts and pursue adoption as their way of giving their babies the best chance of having productive, happy lives. Unfortunately, LIFE DOES NOT COME WITH GUARANTEES, but here are a few examples of people who were put up for adoption:

  1. Steve Jobs – co-founder of Apple computers and technology.
  2. Dave Thomas – founder of the Wendy’s restaurant chain. 
  3. Babe Ruth – one of the best baseball players of all time (He also became an adoptive parent.)
  4. Edgar Allan Poe – the famous poet and short story writer. 
  5. Faith Hill – famous country singer and actress.

If you Google “people who have been adopted,” you will find many more examples. Of course, not all children given up for adoption go onto to accomplish great deeds or achieve fame and some have tragic lives – just as people raised by their birth parents. If you find yourself with an untimely pregnancy, unwanted pregnancy, or unplanned pregnancy, ask yourself if you are prepared to make a lifetime commitment of raising your child. If not, look at other options, including adoption. 

If you would like more information about adoption and available living expenses during and after your pregnancy, we, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh — or the “Kirsh Boys,” as the adoption attorneys at Kirsh & Kirsh are sometimes called – would be happy to help. 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.

Indiana’s law about abortion, Indiana Code § 16-34, provides a near total ban on abortions except in very limited circumstances and time frames. While some states may allow a woman to have an abortion up to a certain number of weeks into the pregnancy for any reason or just because she wants to abort the fetus, Indiana does not. Therefore, if you do not fit into one of the exceptions found in Indiana Code § 16-34, you will need to look into other options for your baby. For some women who find themselves with an untimely pregnancy, unexpected pregnancy, unplanned pregnancy, or unwanted pregnancy is adoption is an alternative to parenting the child.

Not long ago, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), an expectant mother completed our contact form requesting information about adoption. In the comment section, she expressed concern if she could live with herself if she give her baby up for adoption or, more correctly, as adoption professionals would say, made an adoption plan for her baby. She conveyed a concern many, if not all, birth mothers share. BUT, the question applies equally to the following two options a woman with an unintended pregnancy, unplanned pregnancy, or untimely pregnancy has:

  1. Will I be able to live with myself if I have an abortion? Abortion ends the pregnancy but not the fact of having been pregnant. 
  2. Will I be able to live with myself if I decide to parent my child and cannot provide for my child in the way I think he or she deserves?  

Many of life’s decisions do not have an easy or even good solution. Occasionally, we must choose the least bad alternative or the lesser of evils. That may very well be how a birth mother who does not feel prepared for the fact that she is pregnant will have to reach a decision. However, and we cannot make this point strongly enough, she should not put off deciding hoping her dilemma will disappear. It will not.

Adoption establishes a legal parent-child relationship and, in all but second-parent adoptions and stepparent adoptions, terminates the parent-child relationship between the child and birth parents. Said differently, after the court grants an adoption, the parental rights of the biological parents come to an end and the adoptive parents become the child’s legal parents. Guardianship, on the other hand, does not make the guardian the child’s legal parent. The guardian assumes responsibility for the child but not parental rights to the child. When a guardianship ends, the birth parents reassume their roles as parents of the child. This highlights another important difference between guardianship and adoption – adoptions are permanent, and guardianships are usually temporary. If a birth mother does not feel ready for the responsibilities of parenthood due to her current circumstances, which she believes will resolve in relatively short period of time or wants to maintain contact with her child and knows someone who will remain guardian indefinitely, she should choose guardianship over adoption.  However, a birth parent should understand that even if a person says they will serve as guardianship of the child for as long as the birth parent wants, at some point, the guardian may start seeing the child as “their” child, form a deep emotional bond with the child, and be unwilling to voluntarily give the child back. If that should happen, the birth parent would likely have to go to court and prove that the guardianship no longer serves the child’s best interests. That task becomes more difficult the longer the guardian has been guardian. Additionally, the birth parent will have to overcome the fact that they implicitly admitted to their inability to care for the child when they asked for the guardianship in the first place. While guardianship often provides a viable alternative when a birth mother cannot immediately take care of her child, a birth mother should honestly assess her current situation and prospects for the future. If adoption could be in her child’s best interests, she should contact an adoption professional — an experienced, well respected adoption attorney, a national adoption agency, or a local adoption agency – to learn more about adoption.

When a baby is born, the hospital will complete an application for the newborn’s birth certificate and send it to the state or local department of health, depending on the state in which the birth mother gives birth. The birth mother’s name and the birth father’s name, if he has signed a paternity affidavit at the hospital or otherwise legally established paternity of the child will appear, as parents, on the original birth certificate. Also, they have the option of naming the baby, with a name meaningful to them. If they (or she, if the father is not involved) gave up the baby for adoption, or more correctly, make an adoption plan for the baby. When the child reaches adulthood, the child can request and receive a copy of the original, pre-adoption, birth certificate from the state department of health, in most states. That birth certificate will include the birth mother and birth father, who had established paternity, as parents and the name they chose for the child. 

Once the court has finalized the adoption, the clerk of the court will complete a record of adoption and send it to the department of health. The department of health will then seal the original birth certificate and replace it with a birth certificate listing the adoptive parents as parents of the child, with whatever name they have chosen for the child. 

Sometimes, birth mothers and adoptive parents agree on a name for the child and that name will appear on the original birth certificate. However, even if the adoptive parents and birth mother coincidentally had the same last name and agreed on the baby’s first and middle names, the state health department would still seal the original birth certificate and issue a new, post-adoption birth certificate because the post-adoption birth certificate would list the adoptive parents as parents of the child. The original birth certificate would show the birth mother (and father if he signed a paternity affidavit or otherwise established paternity) as the parent(s).

Over the last 40 years of handling adoptions, we at Adoption Attorneys, Kirsh & Kirsh, PC, have always found a loving, secure home for all babies whose birth mothers have made the decision to give up their babies for adoption, or more correctly, make an adoption plan for their babies. In every adoption we arrange, the birth mother or birth parents choose the adoptive parents after we have shared with them information about potential adoptive families.

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.

Pregnant women looking into adoption for the first time often ask us, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) that question. While we cannot speak for a local adoption agency or national adoption agency, we try to make the process as easy, stress-free, and uncomplicated as possible, with the CLEAR UNDERSTANDING that a birth parent’s decision to put up their baby for adoption, or more correctly, make an adoption plan for the child is the most heart-wrenching, difficult – yet COURAGEOUS, UNSELFISH AND HONORABLE – decision a person will ever face. At Kirsh & Kirsh, we CANNOT make the decision EASY, but we try to make it EASIER by eliminating as many unnecessary, intrusive steps as possible and making ourselves available 24/7/365.

In short, we represent thoroughly investigated, carefully screened, prospective adoptive parents who cannot wait to welcome a baby into their homes and hearts. When an expectant birth mother contacts us, we will gather information from her in order to present her profiles of waiting families we think she might want to consider as adoptive parents for her baby. We give her the opportunity to read about the families, look at pictures showing them and the life they hope to offer her child, talk/text with the family, and even meet them in person if she wishes.

Additionally, we will arrange for her to speak with a counselor to help her anticipate the emotions she can expect and provide her tools to help her come to peace with her decision. If she does not have insurance or Medicaid, we will help her try to obtain coverage. If not, we will see that her pregnancy-related, medical bills, as well as living expenses, get paid. We will let the maternity department know that she is CONSIDERING adoption so that when she arrives at the hospital in labor, she does not have to explain her situation to several different people. “Considering” because a birth mother cannot be held to a final decision about adoption until after she gives birth, AND she formally signs a consent to adoption. Said differently – NOTHING a birth mother says or does before she gives birth and signs a consent to adoption obligates her to proceed with an adoption.

After she gives birth, if she chooses to proceed with the adoption, we will arrange for her to sign a consent to adoption, at a time convenient for her, usually the day following the birth – but NO SOONER than when she is ready. We encourage her to have with her whomever she would like as support. We will then have her confirm her consent for the judge by telephone. The judge just wants to hear her say that she signed the consent voluntarily, freely, and with a clear understanding of what she signed. The court will then issue an order authorizing the hospital to release the baby directly into the adoptive parents’ arms – NOT TO A FOSTER HOME and with NO involvement of the Department of Children Services.

All families whom we, at Kirsh & Kirsh, represent will provide the birth mother photographs and letters for 18 years letting her know how her child is getting along.

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.

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 on Google.

Some birth parents think of giving prospective adoptive parents the gift of a child as the meaning of the “Gift of Adoption.” Of course, giving an adoptive family a baby is absolutely an AMAZING gift, as close to GOD-LIKE as any gift imaginable. In fact, one would be hard-pressed to think of a more unselfish, generous gift one person can give to another, but it only describes part of the magnitude of the gift. Another perspective is that the child receives the gift of a loving, secure, stable home with the chance to experience all that life offers, including good education and the opportunity to develop and explore his or her natural talents and interests. Furthermore, do not diminish the gift a birth parent gives herself or himself, knowing that their child is being cared for and loved by people who cannot wait to share their blessings with a child. It is okay for a birth parent, not ready or able to parent a child, to feel a sense of relief that they have secured a wonderful, loving home in which many, if not most, of their child’s wants and needs, will be satisfied.

We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“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 their child’s best interests. 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.
