Review for The Cradle, Evanston, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
