Indiana Local Adoption Agency

An Adoption Agency Said That I Should Not Work With Adoption Attorneys KIRSH & KIRSH, P.C. (“KIRSH & KIRSH”) Because They Represent The Adoptive Parents And The Adoption Agency Represents Me?

Actually, a local adoption agency or national adoption agency will probably tell you that they represent everyone in the adoption triad – the birth mother, adoptive parents, and child.

Can I Change My Mind About Giving Up My Baby For Adoption?

YES, as long as you do so prior to signing a consent to adoption, and under Indiana law, a birth mother CANNOT sign a valid consent to adoption before she gives birth.

(“Kirsh & Kirsh”), over the last nearly 40 years of handing adoptions in Indiana and beyond, rarely does an adult adoptee tell us that she or he would not welcome meeting their birth parents. On […]
