Thank you for your interest in working with The Cradle as a prospective adoptive parent. The first step in the adoption process is to attend our Information Meetings. At this meeting you will hear our Adoptive Parent Intake Coordinator talk about The Cradle’s philosophy on adoption, openness in adoption, our various adoption programs and how we prepare and support our families through the home study process and beyond.
Our Information Meetings are held virtually about every other month. Please check back often to see when our next Information Meeting will be held. If you have questions as you wait to attend one of our free Information Meetings, please schedule a phone call with a Cradle Counselor.
The Cradle works with prospective adoption parents for placement of children in forever families. We have two domestic infant programs, Agency Assisted Program and the General Domestic Program*, and our International Program for families who wish to adopt a child from another country.
*Our General Domestic Program (including the Finding Families for Children Initiative) has limited availability, and families will need to be accepted into our program which will be based on the program’s needs.
The Cradle is 100 years old in 2023! You can get involved with our Centennial Celebration by sharing your story to be part of Faces of The Cradle, attending an event, or making a donation.
