Getting to know The Cradle
Our Process of Adoption
Choosing an adoption agency is an important and sometimes difficult decision. You want to rely upon someone to carefully guide you through your options as well as the process. You need to partner with someone you can trust.
At The Cradle you will find a wealth of experience and compassion. With our advice and assistance, you will be supported through every step of the adoption process. Your counselor will serve as your advocate and guide throughout your home study, educational workshops, and placement.
We believe keeping adoptive parents informed throughout the entire adoptive process helps them make the best decisions. So whether you ultimately choose domestic or international adoption, The Cradle can help your dream of a family become a reality.
The Cradle provides information to assist families through the adoption process including home studies for prospective adoptive families living in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will counties in Illinois.
