Join the Cradle Crew at this Year's Walk for Adoption!


The Cradle’s Center for Lifelong Adoption Support program is excited to be organizing a Cradle team of families to walk in the annual Walk for Adoption Chicago. Come meet other families like yours and who have a similar connection to The Cradle!



Walk Information

On Saturday, September 24th families from around the Chicagoland area will take to Lake Arlington in Arlington Heights for the 6th year in a row! The purpose of the walk is to celebrate adoption and to share with the community the beautiful option that adoption can be for families. The Cradle’s Center for Lifelong Adoption Support, which provides individual and family support to families post-adoption, is putting together a team of families and staff that will walk together. 

In conjunction with the walk, there will be plenty of kid-friendly activities, including carnival games. Lunch will be provided with your registration.

Register for the walk here. Be sure to enter the word "CRADLE" as the team at registration! 


To represent the Cradle Crew, team t-shirts will be available on the day of walk for $15 each (cash or check only).



Friends and family can also show their support. You can create a personalized page about your adoption story here: and their tax deductible donation will help purchase art supplies, therapeutic board games, and other materials used with children and families in our adoption therapy practice.

If you have any questions, please contact Mandy Jones at or 847-733-2293.
