Choose An Adoptive Family

Approved Families Waiting to Adopt

The Cradle has an extensive list of wonderful families ready and excited to welcome a new baby into their home. All adoptive families must undergo a comprehensive screening process and complete our adoptive family education courses before they are approved to become Cradle families. 

Don’t see a family?

Search by Family Type and Family Race or browse our families!

You can talk with your counselor about what type of family you’re hoping for, and they will work with you to help you choose an adoptive family. You’ll also have the option of meeting the family to be able to get to know them better and have the opportunity to ask them additional questions

Families hoping to adopt through The Cradle are ready for ongoing contact with the child’s birth family. Learn more about open adoption. Choosing, meeting and having ongoing contact with an adoptive family are all options available to you, but are not required. You can choose what feels right for you.
