On first thought, this seems like an attractive option for a woman considering giving up her baby for adoption or, more correctly, making an adoption plan for the baby. Obviously, the birth mother knows the prospective adoptive parent and can be like a fly on the wall watching the child grow up. However, before making that decision, there are a few questions you might want to ask yourself: Of all of the prospective adoptive parents in the WORLD, is your best friend the best possible adoptive home you can imagine for your baby, or are you considering your best friend because she is your best friend or because you want the baby close? Would it be better to think about what is in your child’s best interests rather than your friend’s best interests or even your best interests?

Other important questions — what will happen to your relationship with your best friend if she thinks your child still looks at you, rather than her, as a mom? What if she is not okay with lying to the child about your true identity as the child’s mother rather than a “friend?”

As parents, our most important role is to protect our children and help them achieve their full potential. For some birth parents, they decide that adoption is in the best interests of their children.

It is safe to say that no parent wants their child to hate them. Unfortunately, as any parent of a teenager will tell you, some children (particularly during their teenaged years) hate their parents for all kinds of reasons, real and imagined. No matter what decision a parent makes when it comes to parenting their child, there is no guarantee that the child will not disagree with the parent’s action. Parents should not make decisions for their children based upon a hope that their children will like or approve of the decisions. Parents need to make decisions based upon what the parent believes serves the child’s best interests. If a woman with an untimely pregnancy or unplanned pregnancy believes that giving her baby up for adoption or, more correctly, making an adoption plan for the child gives the child the best opportunity to live a productive life and reach his or her full potential, then the birth parent needs to take that action regardless of the child’s feelings about the decision. By the way, many adopted children love their birth parents for having put the child’s need above the birth parents’ own breaking hearts. 

As adoption attorneys, Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), have seen over nearly the last 40 years the love for their children birth mother have demonstrated in assuring their children a bright future by selecting adoptive parents who cannot wait to welcome a child into their homes and hearts and will devote every moment of their lives to the success and happiness of their child. There is nothing more “motherly” than placing a child’s needs above those of the parent. 

Giving up a child for adoption is scary. There is nothing easy about it, but working with a local adoption agency, national adoption agency, or a reputable, compassionate, experienced adoption law firm, like Kirsh & Kirsh, with over 90 years of combined legal experience working with birth mothers and expectant mothers, can make it easier. We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, will not pressure you, make you feel badly about whatever choice you make, or try to involve ourselves in your personal affairs.

Each state has its own criminal statutes and definitions of what constitutes fraud. At the very least, it not right to take money from prospective adoptive parents without intending to give up the baby for adoption, or more correctly, make an adoption plan for the baby. Some states like Indiana, make it a FELONY for a woman pretending to be a birth mother or a birth mother to accept living expenses if she does not intend to make an adoptive placement or is not pregnant. See Indiana Code § 35-46-1-9.5. Besides possible jail time under the criminal statute, the defrauded adoptive parents can sue her for THREE TIMES the amount of money she took PLUS attorney fees under Indiana Code § 34-24-3-1.5.

On the other hand, if a woman sincerely intends to give up her baby for adoption and has an honest change of heart, she will not be in trouble. 

We, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), represent lots of carefully screened and fully investigated prospective adoptive parents who will gladly assist an expectant mother intending to proceed with an adoption, the full amount of living expenses allowable by law. Giving a family a baby who cannot give birth to one is as God-like as anything one person can do for another.

Let’s start with two obvious facts: (1) You cannot undo the fact that you ARE pregnant, and (2) you will give birth to a baby. None of us can change the past. What has happened has already happened — as the expression goes, “You can’t unring the bell.” You need to change your focus to how to make the best of what you consider a bad situation, if you are not happy about being pregnant. Most importantly, you are now responsible for the life of an innocent child, and you need to make the best decision for him or her. 

For most women facing an untimely pregnancy or unplanned pregnancy, they intentionally or unintentionally (by not making other plans) decide to parent the child. In most situations that decision works out well for the mother and child. For those successfully parenting women, who did not plan to get pregnant, they take on the challenge of parenting a child for the rest of their lives and do it well. 

However, not everyone has the desire, skill, and resources to dedicate their lives to the responsibility of raising a child. For those women, they need to look for other alternatives. Some will find that their parents will happily, or out of a sense of obligation to a grandchild, take on the responsibility parenting the child. 

Another alternative, which does not get nearly enough attention, is to put the baby up for adoption, or, more correctly, to make an adoption plan for the child. Nothing will change the fact of the pregnancy, but giving newborn the gift of a loving, secure, happy home and adoptive parents, desperate for a child, the gift of parenthood may just be the best way to turn a bad, even hopeless, situation into the best outcome for all involved, including the birth mother. Not often can any of us change the lives of others in a meaningful way. To give a child the opportunity for a productive happy life and adoptive parents a child to nurture and love is a close to God-like as anything one human can do for another.

Contrary to what you have a heard, the United States Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade does NOT make abortion illegal. In many states, nothing will change about the availability of abortion. If you live in a state that does not pose many restrictions on abortion, you should be able to get an abortion now just as you would have been able before the Supreme Court’s decision. If you live in a state with more restrictions on abortion, you should expect those restrictions to remain in place or get even tighter. The United States Supreme Court in deciding the Dobbs case held that the United States Constitution does not create or protect a right to abortion. The Supreme Court held that individual states, through their elected state legislators, have the authority to pass laws expanding or limiting access to abortion within the boundary of their respective states. Thinking about it dispassionately, many people would prefer that the people for whom they vote, and who are accountable to the voters – their state senators and representatives — make decisions about matters within their states rather than the nine, unelected members of the Supreme Court.

However, even if you live in a state that continues to allow, or even expands the availability of, abortion if you have an unplanned pregnancy or untimely pregnancy, you should consider all of your options before choosing to have an abortion. Abortion ends the pregnancy but does not erase the fact that you were pregnant. Abortion means that a woman does not have to carry a baby to term, but it is unlikely that she will ever forget she had an abortion.

An often-overlooked alternative to abortion is adoption. It is true that a woman must endure 9 months of pregnancy and then make the decision to leave the hospital without the baby. Even though she will never forget she had a baby, she will know that she gave her baby the opportunity to live life in the home of a family who dearly wanted a baby to love and cherish. A family who probably spent years and thousands of dollars on infertility treatments trying to get pregnant and possibly had one or more disappointments and lots of money trying to adopt. At least, in giving a baby up for adoption, or more correctly, making an adoption plan for the baby, you will be able to offset some of your grief with the knowledge that you did something incredibly unselfish for a fellow human being — an act as close to God-like, as anything imaginable.

The other evening my wife, Jacque, and I, Steve Kirsh, saw Sting live at the Palladium in Carmel, Indiana. The warm-up singer looked familiar, but we did not know from where. Like many warm-up acts, he performed okay. To say that Sting outshined the warm-up act would be like comparing 6-time Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady, to a high school quarterback.  Sting had the sold-out crowd on their feet most of the show. During the first encore, Sting brought on stage the warm-up singer and introduced him as his son. They sang a duet, which both obviously enjoyed.

Unlike Sting’s son, who played “second fiddle” (excuse the pun) to his dad, my son, Grant Kirsh, has become a truly exceptional adoption attorney in his own right by taking everything he learned from me as an adoption attorney and blending it with his own skill, knowledge, personality, and work ethic. As evidence of the esteem in which his clients hold him look at the number of 5-Star Google Reviews which mention him by name. As a dad, I could not be happier that my son has established himself as a better, more successful lawyer than me.

Grant and my brother, Rob Kirsh, who are closer in age than Rob and me, also an excellent adoption attorney, who holds licenses to practice law in Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Michigan, in addition to Indiana, are the future of Kirsh & Kirsh. Going forward, I know that the tradition of adoption law in the Kirsh Family is in good hands.

We, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) cannot speak for local adoption agencies or national adoption agencies, but we, at Kirsh & Kirsh, NEVER pressure or try to make, an expectant mother or birth mother feel bad about her decision to parent her child. She has the ABSOLUTE right to parent her child if she so chooses. Likewise, we do not try to substitute our judgment for hers. All that we ask is that she tells us as soon as she has made that decision, especially, if she has already selected prospective adoptive parents. In our adoption program, when an expectant mother matches with prospective adoptive parents, those adoptive parents forego other opportunities to adopt while waiting for the expectant mother to deliver. Prior to delivery if she decides not to put up her baby for adoption (or more correctly to place her baby for adoption) and she tells us, at Kirsh & Kirsh, we can begin showing that family’s profile to other expectant mothers. That is why letting us know is so important. However, uncertainty about adoption should not deter you from looking into adoption.

To answer the second question first – ABSOLUTELY, we at Kirsh & Kirsh can help you find a fantastic, carefully screened and thoroughly investigated, loving home for your baby if you decide to give up your baby for adoption, or, more correctly stated, make an adoption plan for your soon-to-be-born or newborn baby.

Kirsh & Kirsh is an adoption-only law firm that helps both expectant mothers find loving homes for their precious children and newborns and hopeful adoptive parents find babies to adopt. It provides many of the same functions as a national adoption agency and local adoption agency but does not perform pre-adoptive home studies for prospective adoptive parents nor does it provide counseling for birth parents. Kirsh & Kirsh contracts with independent agencies and counselors to fulfill those roles. In terms of the number of successful adoptive placements and combined legal experience, Kirsh & Kirsh ranks highest among all adoption law firms in Indiana, the Midwest, and, perhaps, the country. The firm has more than 500, 5-Star Google reviews and over 12,000 followers on Facebook.

Steve Kirsh co-founded the firm in 1981 and began handling adoptions in the early 1980s. As the number of adoptions increased, Steve needed help, which is when Joel Kirsh, Steve’s brother got involved in facilitating adoptions. Steve served as president and treasurer of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys, an internationally recognized association of adoption and ARTs attorneys; received an Angels in Adoption Award by the United States Congress; represented the United States as part of the US delegation to the final drafting session of the Hague Convention on Inter-country Adoption; has made significant contributions to amending Indiana’s adoption laws, which a number of states have copied because Indiana’s laws are among the best in the country. For his efforts, the Indiana General Assembly afforded Steve special recognition. Steve also authored the Adoption Protocol used by nearly all Indiana Hospitals.

Joel Kirsh handles step-parent and family adoptions for the firm, in addition to assisting with newborn adoptions. His knowledge and experience make Joel a valuable member of Kirsh & Kirsh.

After graduating from law school in 2014, Grant Kirsh, Steve’s son, joined the firm and, in a short time, has become a leading attorney in the State of Indiana in foster care adoptions through the Indiana Department of Child Services, more commonly known as DCS.

Rob Kirsh joined Kirsh & Kirsh in 2018. In addition to being licensed to practice law in Indiana, Rob also holds law licenses in Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Michigan, expanding the adoption practice of Kirsh & Kirsh to most of the Midwest.

We, at Kirsh & Kirsh — or the “Kirsh Boys,” as the adoption attorneys at Kirsh & Kirsh are sometimes called, 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 the best interests of their child. 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.

“Giving away” suggests that you are discarding, of getting rid of, your baby, as you might with an old pair of sneakers. A birth mother who has the courage, strength, and fortitude to entrust the life of her precious child to another set of parents is NOT one who has GIVEN AWAY her child. She has put her child’s needs to have a loving, secure, home, with a lifetime of opportunities ahead of her own breaking heart. Several years ago, a birth mother said to us, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”): “I have ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD for my baby, but LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH. I know that given where I am in my life, I will not have the time to give my child the attention that it needs.” At the time, the woman was a full-time nursing student. After placing up her baby for adoption, or more correctly, making an adoption plan for her baby, she completed her nursing degree.

If your friend thinks assuring your child will grow up in a happy, loving home with devoted parents who have the resources and time to attend to your child’s wants and needs is “giving away” the baby, your friend needs to rethink their choice of words, or you need to rethink how much weight you give to your friend’s words.

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 in Google.

Very few women who think about giving up their babies for adoption, or more correctly, making adoption plans for their babies actually proceed to make adoption plans for their newborns. For a birth parent to place a baby in an adoptive home, the birth parent must believe and have faith that the adoptive parents can and will provide the child with a loving, secure, and happy home, with a lifetime of opportunities – beyond what they, the birth parents realistically believe they can provide the child. We, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), have met with a great number of expectant mothers and birth mothers over the last 35+ years of our firm’s existence. Many more women decide to parent their babies (as is ABSOLUTELY their right) than proceed with adoptions. Interestingly, the ones who make adoption plans are probably the opposite of who most people would think are the likely candidates. The older, more mature, better educated, stable, forward-thinking a woman, the MORE likely she will place her baby for adoption. Those women tend to have a more realistic idea of the time and commitment of parenthood. We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, are very selective about the prospective adoptive parents we accept as clients. All are thoroughly investigated by independent adoption agencies.

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. 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 the best interests of their child. 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.
