Drug during pregnancy and adoption options

I Used Drugs During My Pregnancy, Can I Still Place My Newborn For Adoption Through Adoption Attorneys KIRSH & KIRSH, P.C. (“KIRSH & KIRSH”)?

Yes. Kirsh & Kirsh has loving, carefully screened, prospective adoptive parents who have expressed interest in adopting babies exposed to drugs or born addicted to drugs. In our 35+ years of experience with THOUSANDS of birth mothers, we have never known of an expectant mother who intentionally tried to hurt their unborn child by taking drugs. Drug addiction, something not easily overcome, does not prevent a birth mother from proceeding with an adoption unless the Indiana Department of Children Services (“DCS”) intervenes before an adoption plan is in place. Therefore, if you are considering giving your baby up for adoption, or more correctly, making an adoption plan for your baby, contact us, at Kirsh & Kirsh, sooner rather than later in your pregnancy. The sooner we get involved, the less likely DCS will place the child in a foster home. Of course, babies have a way of coming when they are ready, and plans cannot always be made ahead of time. If you are late in your pregnancy or have already delivered, contact, or have the hospital social worker contact, us as soon as possible. We have had success with many of the local offices of DCS getting them to stand down from taking custody of a newborn and placing the child in foster care, if a birth mother asks us to find an adoptive home for her baby rather than let the baby go into the DCS department system.

We have lots of wonderful, carefully screened, loving families (married, single, Lesbian, and Gay) who cannot wait to welcome a baby into their hearts and homes and are happy to assist with living expenses to the full extent allowed by law.

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 on Google.
