We found ourselves ready for an adoption and in need of the guidance and knowledge of a seasoned, competent attorney who understood not only the adoption process, but the DCS adoption process. Grant with Kirsh & Kirsh was one of many calls to determine our best next step as we worked to build our family. His solid reputation was promising, but it was his approachable nature and eagerness to help that gave us confidence in him. From that first phone call, Grant and his team jumped in, ready to help us navigate the more intricate aspects of the process, always encouraging and informative. Yesterday was our special day, and every single step leading up to our happy moment was made manageable by the consistent and accurate advice from Grant. He did not just take us through the motions but instead took time to answer our questions and intercede when other parties lost their momentum in preparing their parts of our adoption. We cannot say enough about how Kirsh & Kirsh enthusiastically supported our adoption efforts and saw the process through until the end. Being an expert in adoption law is important; being a compassionate, genuine individual who truly invests in his clients was the cherry on top. Thank you, Grant and staff, for providing us with the information, support, and guidance we needed to see our not-so-streamline adoption through to the end. Every hiccup, every setback, every unforeseen challenge was met with finesse and professionalism, and we thank you for not just showing up for our special day but for celebrating, through your hard work, the magic of uniting a forever family. We are forever grateful.

I contacted Kirsh & Kirsh in 1999. I was having twins! I was young and a little lost in my life, I was a single mom and I knew I was not ready to take on the financial responsibility of a bigger family. I met with Joel and after our meeting I knew Kirsh & Kirsh were going to help me find an amazing family for my children. Now 15 years later I am planning my second visit with my twins and their family! Adoption is nothing like it use to be. Thanks to today's technology and the entire staff at Kirsh I have been able to watch my children grow. It has been an amazing experience and if you are thinking about adoption Kirsh & Kirsh are wonderful! They will make sure the family you choose for your child is the right family for you and your child. I love everyone at Kirsh & Kirsh!

Very professional and friendly from the first day we talked to them. Highly experienced in adoption law. We were matched after waiting only 5 months. They were with us every step of the way. They were also so kind to the birth parents, which meant a lot to us. Highly recommend!

We were connected to Kirsh & Kirsh through our adoption agency after a match was made. Being from another state, I felt comforted knowing that Kirsh and Kirsh were there to assist us, and answer any questions we had. Thank you to everyone we met in person and via email...you are all amazing! You helped make our family complete!

Our adoption was a complete journey that led us to Kirsh and Kirsh to handle all legal work. To have full confidence in the lawyers handing our adoption was the most important thing for us. When we knew Kirsh and Kirsh would be our lawyers, we were able to finally relax knowing that we were not in good hands, but the best hands. We were impressed with the dedication, professionalism, knowledge, organization, and friendliness of Steve Kirsh and his amazing staff. As we look back on our journey and the agencies we have worked with along the way, we would highly recommend Kirsh and Kirsh to anyone interested in adoption services. You can put complete trust in their team to handle your adoption.

My wife and I are looking to adopt. I found Kirsh and Kirsh online at IndianaAdoption.com and had several questions. We have spent months researching different agencies, facilitators, and attorneys. Steve Kirsh took my call, spent 45 minutes giving me candid answers to some very difficult questions. I appreciate his 30 years experience in the adoption field and felt I was speaking with a very honest person. He is by far the most knowledgable adoption professional I have talked to.

I wish we had found Kirsh when we started our adoption journey. When we started, we did not know anyone that had completed a successful domestic adoption in the last 5 years. We tried a less expensive agency, but it was not a good fit. Kirsh did a really good job of talking us through match situations and helping us assess risk. After a painful failure with a different agency, we felt Kirsh and Kirsh was our bright light in the dark forest of adoption. We knew this firm was knowledgeable, responsive, and committed to helping us with our goal of having a family. They were always looking out for our best interests. They are true professionals, and you do not always get that with the bargain priced agencies. We strongly recommend Kirsh!
Thanks to Kirsh, we have been blessed with a child. If we decide to expand our family again, we will only trust Kirsh and Kirsh with that task. They were so very kind to us through the whole process. Our initial talk was with Joel. We liked him from the start. This firm is comprised of mostly family, and that definitely made a difference. They work together! If someone is out of the office, someone else is happy to help you. Steve has responded to email from us on the weekend. Emley, who worked our match that brought us our child, is truly one of heaven's angels.
When we were finally parents, I honestly think they were almost as happy for us as some of our close friends! I cannot say enough positive things about this firm.

We originally started the adoption process with another agency approximately 3.5 years ago and were unsuccessful. After this heartbreaking experience, we decided to retain Kirsh & Kirsh for several reasons. First, was due to their excellent reputation. Second, was because our friends had been successfully placed with children through Kirsh and Kirsh. Finally, after meeting with Steve and Joel, we knew we too would be able to successfully form a family with their assistance.
We retained Kirsh and Kirsh in September of 2012 and were successfully matched with our healthy baby girl in February of 2013.
Everyone in the Kirsh and Kirsh family is so amazing. They are true professionals and experts in this field.
The only regret we have is that we did not retain Kirsh & Kirsh sooner!

We had heard of Kirsh & Kirsh’s excellent reputation for years, and had met several couples that had used their services. When we made the decision to expand our family through adoption, they were our first choice. From our first initial meeting to follow up visits to show off our adopted son, the entire staff was amazing. They truly are a family run business, and you experience that from the very beginning. What can be a very emotional journey with many turns; Steve, Joel and staff were all by our sides the entire time and provided the words and encouragement we desperately needed.
We have begun the adoption process again. Not only are we anxious to add to our family, we sincerely look forward to working with the entire staff once again. We know we are in good hands and they are always looking out for our best interests. The level of experience and professionalism is bar none. Contacting Steve and Joel Kirsh was one of the best decisions we ever made, and will most likely be yours as well.

I first came in contact with Kirsh & Kirsh over 20 years ago. I was a scared pregnant teen that decided to give my baby the best life possible - adoption. The Kirsh & Kirsh team explained all of my options and walked me through the process of what they could and would provide. They did EXACTLY what they said they would do...and MORE! I have nothing but POSITIVE things to say about this group of wonderful individuals. THANKS for all you did and continue to do!

After having a bad situation with a less professional agency, I would recommend Kirsh to everyone! They are professional and caring. They keep you informed about your adoption and what is happening in their group. They call you and response to email. Every time you speak with them, they make you feel hopeful. They treat everyone will fairness. They understand birth mom feelings and adoptive family feelings. They walk you through the process before you sign up. They make sure you understand what this is all about. They help write your birth mother letter with wonderful tips. You can tell they know what they are doing. They have the experience to get you a baby!
After having been successfully matched and taken home our baby through Kirsh & Kirsh, I would like to write another review of their practice. The people that work for Kirsh & Kirsh are truly special. They understand that they are changing lives for the adoptive family, the brave birth mother, and most importantly the child. They have a deep love for adoption. When we met everyone in their office with our new baby, it was like one big happy family. Of course most of their staff are related. They were so excited for us. It is a good feeling having that family surrounding you in the mountain top experience you are having with your new baby. I cannot say enough that Kirsh & Kirsh would be an outstanding choice for you to grow your family!

I cannot say enough good things about the people at Kirsh & Kirsh. Their professionalism blended with their huge hearts and how much they care about each and every individual was amazing. My wife and I were always well informed, received timely responses and they were able to accommodate all of our requests. It is one thing to have adoptions as part of what you do, the people at Kirsh & Kirsh do it with hope, a love for people and passion. Throughout the entire process I felt as if they were almost as excited as my wife and I. They understand how emotional, stressful and amazing the process can be on families. Not only did they never give me any reason for doubt or discomfort, I was actually pleasantly surprised as each step moved forward. They went out of their way and put in additional time to accommodate a difficult timeline as well as my schedule. Walking in to a process like this is scary and emotional. Those feelings were put to rest at every point in the process and I truly felt like I had an office of new friends. I would be shocked if any office can match Kirsh & Kirsh. I have never been more impressed.
P.S. Another huge thanks to you guys at Kirsh & Kirsh! You're the best!

We had the pleasure of working with Kirsh and Kirsh to adopt our son Aidan. As one can imagine, the process of adopting a child can be an emotional and stressful experience. However, I cannot think of anyone I would rather have guiding me through the process than Steve and Joel Kirsh and the staff at their firm. When we had questions there was always someone available to take our call and provide answers. And, if something had to be researched or looked into they always got back to us in a timely manner. They were not only accessible, but also approachable. (I really appreciated that as I got closer to our son’s expected arrival date they were very patient with my neurotic-first-time-mother questions and reassured me that everything would be okay!) While they were very encouraging throughout the process they were also very honest and explained possibilities to us so we could be prepared in case we hit any bumps along the road.
In addition to being there for us, the Kirshes were also a comfort to our birthmother whom we were matched with using the Kirsh Directed Approach. Our birthmother is a phenomenal young woman and we are so grateful that we were able to match with her. The fact that Kirsh and Kirsh did all the work to find her through the Directed approach took that stress off of our plate so that we could focus on preparing to become parents. And, although they always made it clear that the firm represented us, they answered any of our birthmother’s questions so that she had the information she needed to continue with her adoption plan. I know that she appreciated having a resource to call on and I was grateful that she didn’t feel alone during what was a very emotional and difficult time for her.
From helping us get our approval process started, to editing our birthmother letter, to finding the most wonderful birthmother and son, to celebrating with us on Adoption Day, I cannot think of a more qualified or more caring team of individuals to guide you through the adoption process. Because of our wonderful experience with Kirsh and Kirsh, I highly recommend them as THE firm to call when beginning the adoption process, whether you live in Indiana or not!

My husband and I adopted our son through Kirsh and Kirsh. They came highly recommended to us through close friends. Our entire adoption process took eight months from beginning to end. We are not from Indiana and worried that this would make the process longer and more difficult. It couldn't have gone any smoother. Kirsh and Kirsh is a family owned and operated firm, and it shows. The care, concern, time and attention we received throughout the process was amazing. We worked with Josh and Steve and cannot speak highly enough about their professionalism and genuine interest and concern for us... and our birthmother. We traveled to Indiana one time...and that was to meet our son and take him home. We mainly worked with Josh and he made himself available for all of our questions and concerns throughout the process. HE GENUINELY CARES about the process and everyone involved. This is not just a business to this family... and it shows. You get what you pay for and that is what I would say to those who might hesitate at the cost. We are gearing up to work with them again and would without hesitation, recommend the services of Kirsh and Kirsh. I thank them regularly for making our dreams come true.

From the beginning of my pregnancy, I knew I wanted to choose adoption. I knew from the depths of my heart it was the best option for Max. As difficult as it was to have to make that kind of life changing decision, he would never have the father figure he deserved. With adoption, he would be able to have the solid ground in which he deserved. When you decide to go with adoption it can be intimidating. Luckily, I had a family chosen by the time I was 3 and a half months pregnant. Since they did not live in Indiana, they had to choose a lawyer inside Indiana to work with the outside state. The adoptive family chose Kirsh & Kirsh. Although Kirsh and Kirsh did not represent me, Steve Kirsh made me feel like it was as though he truly cared about my side, my story, most importantly; my growing baby. I would highly recommend them. They will make you feel at ease, at home, secure, and they give you the confidence that you can rely on them. Throughout the whole experience, Steve Kirsh was always willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything was as easy and smooth sailing as possible. He met me at Starbucks not even a mile away from my home. From my experience with Kirsh & Kirsh, you cannot go wrong by choosing them.
Birthmother1, thank you for your kind review! You had some very kind words to say about Kirsh & Kirsh and Steve Kirsh. I help monitor our reviews online and when I read yours I was curious why you onlky gave 3/5 stars versus 5/5 based on the review you wrote? Just curious. Thank you and happy holidays!!!

Kirsh and Kirsh was a true find for us when we decided to pursue domestic adoption. They were responsive, knowledgeable, helpful, trustworthy, and honest. They were forthcoming with all information and we appreciated their effectiveness in getting us through the adoption process. In the end, we adopted a beautiful little boy which wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the Kirsh and Kirsh team.

I am always telling my husband how I should be an advocate for Kirsh and Kirsh and our daughter should be the poster child for adoption. We mainly worked with Steve and at times he gave me such comforting words over the phone as he guided us through the ups and downs of the adoption process. We have referred several people to them, one of whom was able to adopt a beautiful little boy. This is a family organization, and that is how I felt I was always treated when I called there. I will never forget the time we "got the call" and we were so thrilled when we stopped by their office to show off our beautiful little girl. We cannot thank them enough for making our dreams come true. Keep up the good work!!!!

Recently I had to use Stephen Kirsh for an emergency adoption for my daughter. She had hidden her pregnancy from me and the whole family for 9 months. I did not think it was possible,but it is. I found out about her being pregnant on thursday night and took her to the delivery room saturday night. I called him at 9 oclock in the morning and he was at the hospital by 3 oclock in the afternooon. With a 3 hour drive to get their. He arrived with all the needed documents to compleat the adoption. It was an open adoption so she and I could pick the addopttion parents. When I met him he was the most pleasent and knowelageable lawer that I had ever met. He knew exactly what had to be done and explaned every part of it. He explained every step in the process so my daughter and I felt 100% better about it when he was finished.
If this would ever arise again I would use Steven Kirsh again without any reserve. I would recommend his agency to anyone that is is considering an addoption. His knowage and freindlyness will ease your mind and make the process much less painful.

My wife and I adopted twin girls from another state, Kirsh & Kirsh handled all of the Indiana paper work and court hearings. Steve Kirsh went "the extra mile" in our adoption, handling things that wasn't even his responsibility, and didn't charge extra for this help. Steve has always replied to emails very quickly, answering questions before, during, and even after our adoption. I met Joel at our final court hearing and he was great as well. Everything went exactly as he said it would. Steve and Joel have built a wonderful business and also a great staff.
We now are parents to beautiful twin girls. Kirsh and Kirsh helped to complete our family!

My husband & I began the adoption process about a year and a half ago. The process is a bit overwhelming. We had a hard time choosing an agency - we went to orientations and received many packets in the mail. Nothing felt quite right until we contacted Kirsh & Kirsh. Steve Kirsh was why we decided to work with Kirsh. Every interaction with him and the agency was kind and professional. Every person that I spoke with that had worked with Kirsh in the past or knew someone that worked with Kirsh all had positive things to say. Kirsh & Kirsh to us was not just an agency – it is a family agency. Throughout the process we dealt with many members of the team – all who we loved. The adoption process is hard and it has its ups and downs for adoptive parents – throughout the process Kirsh was very open and honest and supportive.
Two weeks ago we adopted our newborn son. The process of meeting and adopting him was more amazing than we could have imagined. The staff at the hospital where he was born told us how much they loved working with Steve & Joel Kirsh and how kind and wonderful they are with birthmothers.
Hope this is helpful to anyone searching for an agency.
