The Cradle

The Cradle is a private child welfare agency, licensed by the State of Illinois and Kansas. We work to benefit children — by providing education, guidance and lifelong support on parenting choices. Our commitment is to serve as a partner in creating and sustaining nurturing families. Founded in 1923, The Cradle has placed more than 14,000 infants with loving families. The Cradle is the only adoption agency in the country to continue to support an on-site nursery. It provides a safe and neutral place for a baby to stay while birth parents continue their counseling in an effort to make the best possible decision for their child.
