“Giving away” in that context suggests that you are getting rid of, or discarding, the baby as you might with an old pair of shoes. A woman who has the strength and courage 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 desire for her child to have a loving, secure, home, with a lifetime of opportunities ahead of her own breaking heart. 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.” The woman was a full-time student in nursing school. After giving up her baby for adoption, or more correctly, making an adoption plan for her baby, she went on to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. If your friend thinks assuring your child will grow up in a loving, happy home with devoted parents who have the resources to attend to the 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.
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.
Our contact information is below. We will answer your questions and provide you with the information you seek, without cost or obligation on your part.

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.
