Effective September 15, 2022, Indiana Code 16-34-2-1, will ban abortion in Indiana, except during the first 20 weeks of pregnancy to prevent “any serious health risk to the pregnant woman or save the pregnant woman’s life” or if “the fetus is diagnosed with a lethal fetal anomaly.” Also, a woman who got pregnant as a result of rape or incest may have an abortion during first 10 weeks of the pregnancy. Additionally, Indiana’s new abortion law limits the use of the abortion inducing drug, Mifepristone, to the first 8 weeks of the pregnancy. Some have described Indiana’s abortion law as the most restrictive abortion law in the country and the first since the Dobbs decision, which overturned Roe vs. Wade.

Putting a baby up for adoption, or more appropriately making an adoption plan, gives a woman facing an untimely pregnancy, unplanned pregnancy, or unwanted pregnancy an alternative to parenting the child.

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.

By walking out of a hospital AMA — against medical advice, you risk medical complications, which could threaten your future well-being and even your life. Also, leaving the baby at the hospital, before signing a consent to adoption, will cause the hospital to contact DCS. When DCS gets involved, it will make the baby a Child in Need of Services (CHINS) and place the baby in a foster home. Additionally, DCS will investigate the birth mother or birth parents, including going to her/their home, and requiring her/them to attend court hearings, submit to random drug tests, and participate in parenting classes, OVER A PERIOD OF MONTHS OR YEARS. For most birth mothers who want to get out of the hospital at the earliest possible moment, leaving AMA and abandoning the baby will likely have the unintended consequence of jeopardizing the birth mother’s health and having to deal with DCS for a long time. Waiting for an extra, few hours to get the consent to adoption signed properly will likely save lots of aggravation and stress, in addition to being safer.

If you are thinking about giving your baby up for adoption, or more correctly, making an adoption plan for your newborn, we, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C., will try to accommodate your wishes regarding all aspects of the adoption including the timing of the consent signing.  We will meet you at the hospital, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, including all holidays, if you want to leave the hospital as soon as possible after birth.

We will answer your questions and provide you the information you seek, without cost or obligation on your part. In other words, talking to us costs you nothing nor does it mean you ever have to talk or text with us, again. We can assist you with an Indiana adoption no matter whether you live in Huntington or Huntingburg, Greencastle or Greenfield, or Merrillville or Michigan City, or any Indiana county or city in between.

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 are happy to assist with living expenses to the full extent allowed by law.

Yes. Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), act as the attorneys for prospective adoptive parents hoping to adopt newborns. Additionally, as an ethical matter, Kirsh & Kirsh cannot represent adoptive parents and the birth mother in the same adoption. However, aside from not giving an expectant mother or birth mother “legal advice,” Kirsh & Kirsh will take care of all aspects of the adoption. While Kirsh & Kirsh has one of, if not, the largest adoption programs in the Midwest – Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky — the firm is very much a family business.  The 4 Kirsh & Kirsh attorneys are all Kirshes, 2 other members of our staff are Kirshes, and the other members of our team are like family — one of whom has been with Kirsh & Kirsh for 25 years! We make ourselves available 24/7/365 to answer questions and assist with arrangements for the adoption. Our clients will pay for a pregnant woman, considering giving up her newborn baby for adoption or, more correctly, making an adoption plan for her unborn baby, to speak with a counselor and her own attorney.

We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, have assisted numerous pregnant women, in Indiana and around the country, over the last 35+ years 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.
