The Cradle is thoughtful and responsive to everyone who comes to them for adoption or counseling. The staff is very knowledgeable and effective in dealing with people and their wants. We were thrilled from day 1 receiving our dear daughter . And, after 42 years we are enjoying our two grandchildren. Thank you , Cradle!

My gratitude to the Cradle starts with their facilitation of the adoptions of my nephew and niece. From there it extends to the care they gave those two babies, and so many more, in their nursery. Knowing the kids were loved right from the start is a real comfort to our family. Beyond that, I appreciate all that the Cradle people do to make sure that difficult situations have the best possible outcomes for birth families, adoptive families and of course the adoptees themselves.
