Saturday, September 24 was the annual Walk for Adoption Chicago and the Cradle Crew came out in full force to celebrate!
Thank you to all of the families, friends, and Cradle staff members who attended and who made the day a success. We had over 70 people on The Cradle team. We even received the award for being the agency with the largest team!
Everyone had a blast with the carnival games, face painting, cape-making (for kids and adults!), bounce house, jungle gym, DJ, raffle, and a beautiful walk around the lake.
Our Cradle Crew organizer Mandy Jones, LCSW, JD was thrilled with how the event provided an opportunity for connecting and community building: "It was incredible to see so many of our families coming together and celebrating adoption. It was such a good reminder of the work we do to see so many happy kids and families."
We also were able to raise over $600 for our Center for Lifelong Adoption Support which will help purchase art supplies, therapeutic board games, and other materials used with children and families in our therapy practice.
We can't wait to do it again next year!
