Just as each adoption experience is unique, so are the paths that lead hopeful parents to consider adoption in the first place. No matter the journey that led you here, your local adoption agency The Cradle welcomes you.
Building a family through adoption can be beautiful, complex and hard. Adoption is not a moment. It is lifelong, shaping everyone touched by it.
Understanding these complexities and placing the child’s well-being at the center of every adoption, our experienced counselors will be with you every step of the way. Your Cradle Counselor will serve as your guide throughout your home study, educational workshops, and placement. Our commitment to you is lifelong—we want your child and your family to thrive.
