My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Cradle, Evanston, IL, USA
The Cradle distinguishes itself as an agency that finds parents for children in need (vs. finding children for parents in need). This difference in philosophy has a profound effect on how the Cradle conducts itself in many aspects. All the activities are centered around what is best for the child. Support extends to the birthparent(s) to facilitate a connection between the child and birthparent(s) if an adoption plan is created. Support extends to the adoptive parents to the rigorous home study and to help the child post-placement. And not least, the Cradle is there -forever- for the adopted person. As someone who spent their first weeks being cared for in their unique nursery and a recent adoptive parent, I can attest to the respect, interest and caring this nonprofit organization provides for all involved. The Staff remain competent, caring, interested, and available. There is a reason the Cradle has been around for nearly nine decades and why other agencies use the Cradle-founded Adoption Learning Partners.
