What Will My Child Think of Me?
It’s common for prospective birth mothers to wonder if some day their children will understand the decision to make an adoption plan for them. In our 30 plus years as Indiana adoption lawyers, our experience clearly indicates that as children begin to mature, they recognize the advantages they have that they wouldn’t otherwise have had they not been adopted. Far from resenting their birth mothers, most adoptees express a strong sense of affection and respect for the courage and sacrifice demonstrated by their mothers in giving them a better future in a loving, secure, and stable family.
If you’re considering adoption for your child but have concerns about how your child will react to being adopted, contact Indianapolis adoption lawyers at Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. Our attorneys provide free, confidential consultations and can introduce you to one of our counselors if you like. We’re here to help.
The Wisdom of Solomon
Everyone is familiar with how wise King Solomon resolved a custody dispute between two women. Telling each to grab an arm, Solomon said he would give the little boy to whoever was able to pull the child over to them. When one of the women refused to pull at all, Solomon knew her love far exceeded the other woman’s who was willing to risk injury to the child.
In many ways, prospective birth mothers exhibit the same heroic virtues: out of a deep, abiding love for what is best for their child, they are willing to let them go. At the law office of Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C., we help ease the emotional stress prospective birth mothers experience. Our network of licensed counselors help birth mothers work through doubts about themselves, concerns for their child, and other common issues in an understanding, compassionate setting.
Adoption is a Heroic Choice
It’s natural for a birth mother to doubt herself. However, making an adoption plan for a child instead of having an abortion gives a child a chance in life, to become the world’s next great athlete, scientist, artist, business leader, or even President of the United States, as is true of President Gerald Ford. And, when birth mothers aren’t economically or emotionally ready to assume full responsibility for raising a child, placing them in a loving, nurturing home that will provide them with every opportunity available is clearly a great sacrifice of love – the most unselfish decision a woman can make.
