The Father Of The Baby And I Are Still Together. Can He Be Involved In Putting The Baby Up For Adoption?

We, at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) welcome a cooperative, birth father’s involvement in an adoption. Unfortunately, not often is the father of the baby as interested in participating in the adoption plan as he was at being present for the conception of the baby.

Recently, I met an expectant mother and father. The father fully supported the birth mother’s desire to explore adoption for their soon-to-be-born baby. He listened attentively as I explained what they could expect if they decided to put up the baby for adoption, or, more correctly, make an adoption plan for the baby.

Even though a birth mother cannot sign a consent to adoption prior to a child’s birth, the birth father may sign before the birth of the baby. He chose to sign the consent in my office, in case he could not make it to the hospital when the birth mother would sign her consent to the adoption. Not only did he work, but they have other children together, for whom he might have to care, while the mother of the baby was hospitalized for the birth.

He wanted to participate in selecting the adoptive parents from the profiles I gave to them and thought he might like to meet them. He said he would be happy to complete a background form like the one the mother will complete so that his child and the adoptive parents will have important medical and social history information, about him, as well as the mother of the baby.

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.
