I Am Pregnant And Thinking About Giving My Baby Up For Adoption.  How Are Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C, Different Than Adoption Agencies?

In fact, local adoption agencies have changed how they handle adoptions to be more like Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh” but often misspelled as “Kirsch & Kirsch”). More than 40 years ago, when Steve Kirsh started helping birth mothers find adoptive homes for their newborns, adoption agencies made most adoptive placements. Times were very different then. In those days, when a woman, usually a teenager, found herself with an unplanned pregnancy, untimely pregnancy, or unwanted pregnancy, her family would send her away to live during her whole pregnancy at a maternity home run by an adoption agency. At that time being single and pregnant was socially unacceptable. Girls would live in the adoption agency’s maternity home to save their families the shame of having an unmarried, pregnant girl in the family. The adoption agency would determine THE FAMILY THE AGENCY WANTED TO ADOPT the baby based upon factors the agency thought important, often based upon the religious affiliation of the adoption agency. As an example, Catholic-supported agencies would make adoptive placements with Catholic adoptive parents. Birth mothers had no say in who adopted their babies, received no information about the adoptive families, and the adoptive parents did not provide updates to the birth mothers throughout the children’s lives. 

Adoption Attorney Steve Kirsh realized adoptions could be handled more compassionately for womenconsidering putting their babies up for adoption or more correctly making adoption plans for their babies. He was the first to provide information to birth mothers about prospective adoptive parents FOR THE BIRTH MOTHER TO CHOOSE THE FAMILY SHE WANTED TO ADOPT her baby. The birth mothers who came to Kirsh & Kirsh were the first to have the opportunity to talk with and then meet families interested in adopting. Kirsh & Kirsh required the adoptive parents whom they represented to undergo pre-adoptive counseling and screening even before Indiana law made that a requirement to adopt.  

Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh continue to look for ways to make the adoption process easier for birth mothers to navigate by not requiring unnecessary, burdensome meetings, counseling sessions, and procedures. Of course, Kirsh & Kirsh sees that the adoptive placements they arrange meet all legal requirements and birth mothers receive emotional and legal advice from experienced counselors and attorneys — based upon the needs of individual birth mothers as opposed to a policy set by the board of directors of a local adoption agency or national adoption agencies.

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 mom’s search results in Google.
