Yes. If you live in Indiana or place your baby up for adoption with an Indiana family and assuming the father of the baby has not legally established paternity of the child, meaning through a court proceeding or paternity affidavit, and assuming that you are not married to him, what the father of the baby believes does not matter. Of course, his accusing you of lying probably hurts your feelings, but under Indiana Law, an expectant mother or birth mother does not have to prove paternity of the child to proceed with an adoption. Furthermore, under Indiana Adoption Law, a birth mother does not need the consent to the adoption of a man who is not married to her or who has not established the paternity of the child, as explained above. In fact, he may not even be entitled to notice of the adoption.

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.

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.

Many expectant mothers, thinking about giving up their babies for adoption, or more correctly, making an adoption plan for their newborns, have said this to us at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”).  Before directly responding, this concern proves what we, at Kirsh & Kirsh, have said for the 35+ years we have arranged adoptions and know to be true: birth mothers place their babies for adoption because they LOVE their babies. They want their children to have better lives than they, the birth mothers, can provide at that time in their lives. If a birth mother did not love her baby, why would she be concerned about the baby being alone in the hospital?!?

Firstly, hospitals NEVER leave babies alone. Babies are ALWAYS under the watchful eye of the nurses. If a birth parent does not feed, change, and hold the baby, the nursery nurses are more than happy to love, nurture, and care for the baby. Hospital nursery nurses work in nurseries because they love taking care of babies. 

Secondly, there is another, perhaps, better solution – at the birth mother’s request, the hospital will allow the adoptive parents into the hospital to personally care for the baby in the hospital until the baby is ready for discharge. In fact, most hospitals will give the prospective adoptive parents their own room on the mother-baby, post-partum unit until the baby is ready for discharge. A birth mother can have as much or as little contact with that baby as she feels comfortable. In our considerable experience, we know that each birth parent handles adoption on their own terms and in their own way. For some, that means not spending time with their babies in the hospital. For those mothers, they can rest assured that their babies will NOT be alone in the hospital. 

We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, have assisted numerous pregnant women, in Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky to find loving, happy, wonderful homes for their babies. We give expectant mothers and birth mothers as much or as little involvement in the family selection process as they would like. 

We have lots of wonderful, carefully screened, loving families (married, single, Lesbian, and Gay) who cannot wait to welcome a baby into their hearts and homes and happy to assist with living expenses to the full extent allowed by law.
