26 May What Options Do I have for an Unplanned Pregnancy?
When most couples learn that they are pregnant, they are overjoyed. If that is not how you felt when you learned you were pregnant or you have an unplanned pregnancy, an untimely pregnancy, or for some, an unwanted pregnancy, you have options besides parenting the child, including,
- Giving the baby to a family member to raise,
- Safe Haven Abandonment of the child,
- Foster care
- Abortion, and
At Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), we are most familiar with the option of adoption and since adoption receives little attention as an option for an untimely pregnancy or unplanned pregnancy, this blog entry will provide an overview of adoption.
Adoption creates a permanent, legal relationship between a child and the adoptive parent(s). Foster care, guardianship, or childcare, and the like may continue for a long time but do not make the caregivers the legal parents of the child. Additionally, adoption ends the legal relationship between the child and birth parents.
By giving a baby up for adoption, or more correctly, making an adoption plan for a baby or placing a baby for adoption, through many adoption agencies and Kirsh & Kirsh, expectant mothers have the option of selecting the adoptive parents for their babies from profiles of carefully screened, thoroughly investigated prospective adoptive parents. Kirsh & Kirsh has the VERY HIGH STANDARDS for the prospective adoptive parents they will accept as clients for adoptive placements.
Adoption gives the baby the gift of a loving, secured, prepared home, the new family the gift of a baby, and the birth mother or birth parents the gift of peace of mind that their precious child will receive a loving home and lifetime of opportunities.
We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, have assisted THOUSANDS of pregnant women, in Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, 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.
