Domestic Adoption

Knowing that adoption is a life-changing, lifelong experience, we stress preparation and education for everyone involved. Your domestic adoption counselor will serve as guide and advocate, assist in your home study and the licensing required by Illinois law.

The Cradle embraces an open adoption philosophy for domestic adoption placements. With the best interests of the child in mind, birthparents and adoptive parents meet and agree to forge an ongoing relationship. The more you learn about all the benefits of open adoption, the more you may find it's right for you.

From time to time, The Cradle places children with special medical needs. If you are interested in special needs adoption, contact us for more information.
