I Already Have Kids And Cannot Provide For Another One. What Are My Options?

The first question you should ask yourself — Is your inability to provide for another child temporary or will it last for the foreseeable future? If you only need a few days or a couple of weeks to be able to parent your child, then a close friend or family member may be able to […]

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?

If I Give My Baby Up For Adoption, Will I Ever See The Child Again?

Probably. No one can honestly provide a guaranteed “Yes” to that question. However, at Adoption Attorneys, Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“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 […]
