Is It Too Late To Give My Baby Up For Adoption After I Have Brought The Baby Home From The Hospital?

Is It Too Late To Give My Baby Up For Adoption After I Have Brought The Baby Home From The Hospital?

No, it is not too late. Over the last 35+ years, we, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), have helped a number of birth mothers, throughout Indiana, put their babies up for adoption (make adoption plans) after they have left the hospital with the babies. In many, but not all, of those situations, the birth mother thought about adoption before leaving the hospital with the baby but decided to parent instead – often with promises of emotional, financial, and parenting support from friends and family. Some birth mothers, who later reconsidered adoption, discovered that such promises, while well-intended, didn’t materialize or were not consistent or sufficient to enable the birth mother to parent the child. Clearly, a birth parent considering placing his or her child for adoption faces an impossibly difficult choice, but parenting a child without financial, emotional, and other resources is no easy task, either. Both decisions have lifelong consequences and deserve careful consideration.

Whether you are still in the hospital or have left the hospital with the baby, if you are not confident of your ability to parent the child, you owe it to yourself and precious newborn to, at least, explore adoption. Talking to, or meeting with, an adoption agency or adoption law firm, like Kirsh & Kirsh, does not obligate you to proceed with an adoption. We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, will treat you will kindness and respect, never pressure you to proceed with adoption, or judge you.
