Answering the second question first – YES, Kirsh & Kirsh can help you find a wonderful, loving, carefully screened, and thoroughly investigated home for your baby if you decide to put up your baby for adoption or, more correctly, make an adoption plan for your newborn or soon-to-be-born baby.
Kirsh & Kirsh is an adoption-only law firm that helps expectant mothers find loving homes for their precious babies and prospective adoptive parents find a baby to adopt. It provides many of the same functions as a local adoption agency and national adoption agency but does not provide counseling for birth parents or perform pre-adoptive home studies. Kirsh & Kirsh contracts with independent counselors and agencies to fulfill those roles. In terms of combined legal experience and number of successful adoptive placements, Kirsh & Kirsh is tops among all adoption law firms in Indiana, the Midwest, and, perhaps, the country. The firm has over 12,000 followers on Facebook and more than 500, 5-Star Google reviews.
Steve Kirsh co-founded the firm in 1981 began handling adoptions shortly thereafter. His brother, Joel Kirsh, joined the firm after graduating from law school a few years later. 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 amendments of the Indiana Adoption Code, which several states have copied; authored the Adoption Protocol used by almost every Indiana Hospital, and was recognized by the Indiana General Assembly for his efforts in making Indiana adoption laws among the best in the country.
In addition to assisting with newborn adoptions, Joel Kirsh handles step-parent and family adoptions for the firm. His knowledge and experience make him a valuable asset of Kirsh & Kirsh.
More recently, Steve’s son, Grant Kirsh, has 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 the firm in 2018. In addition to holding a law license in Indiana, Rob is also licensed to practice law 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.

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.
