Facing The Odds Of Teen Pregnancy

Indiana Adoption Attorneys at Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C.

Choosing Life for Children and Families

Pregnant teens face a number of disadvantages that make it difficult for them to provide an appropriate level of care for themselves and their babies. Unskilled and unable to attend college, most struggle to pay for basic necessities while working low paying, entry level jobs. Rarely do their children have the chance to fully explore their talents and interests or to attend college. For instance, did you know that among teen mothers:

60% never complete high school;
25% conceive again as a teen;
85% of children living in poverty were born to teen mothers
There are also a number of other risks and negative consequences associated with teen pregnancy that should be taken into account as well.

Overcoming the Risks Involved

Many of the risks associated with teen pregnancy can be avoided by making an adoption plan for a baby. As Indiana private adoption attorneys, Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. can assist teenaged, prospective birth mothers explore adoption and make the arrangements for an adoption, if they wish. If a prospective birth mother does not have insurance or Medicaid, the adoptive parents can pay her medical bills, and Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C., can help in make arrangements for prenatal care. This is an easy way to ensure teen mothers receive much needed prenatal care and regular medical check-ups over the course of their pregnancy.

Ensuring the Health and Well-Being of a Child

At Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C., our adoption lawyers thoroughly investigate and screen prospective adoptive parents. Working closely with birth mothers, we select only those families capable of providing a level of care and opportunity necessary for a child’s well-being. Adoptive parents not only provide a loving, nurturing home but provide an environment that encourages children to develop their talents, pursue dreams, attend college, and become a successful, productive members of society.

Through adoption, teen mothers ensure their children receive a level of care they themselves cannot provide while giving their child a chance at life. Avoiding dropping out of school and the risks associated with teen motherhood, adoption ultimately allows teen mothers from falling behind in life before they’ve even had a chance to prepare for it. Being a parent takes a full-time, life-long, unrelenting commitment. If you are not ready for the responsibility of parenthood, adoption offers the opportunity for both you and your child to explore all that life has to offer. At Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C., we do not use the expression “put a child up for adoption”. We prefer “make an adoption plan for a child”. In pursuing adoption, women are, in fact, making a plan for their children’s future. They are not giving away their babies. They are providing their children loving families, in which their children will have every opportunity to lead happy, successful lives.
