If you find yourself unexpectedly pregnant, you may need financial help. Indiana Law allows adoptive parents to give living expenses to birth mothers thinking about putting their babies up for adoption. Adoptive parents may provide financial help for living expenses for such things as clothing, groceries, housing, transportation, and other things. Do not confuse financial help with “selling” your baby. “Selling” a baby violates the law in Indiana and probably every other state. But, in Indiana and states allowing financial help in adoptions, a birth mother thinking about giving her baby up for adoption may need living expenses. She may need financial help to get herself through the pregnancy and the weeks following the delivery.

(“Kirsh & Kirsh” — often misspelled as “Kirsch & Kirsch”) will explain what living expenses you can receive during your pregnancy.

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?
