Stories from The Red Couch

In February 2022, we introduced a new film, Stories from The Red Couch. In the film, Cradle Adoptive Dad and Hollywood producer Dan Lanigan beautifully captured 99 years of The Cradle’s work through emotional, uplifting and inspiring stories of adoption. Ten Cradle families recently returned to the well-worn red couch found in the lobby of The Cradle to explore the beauty and complexities of adoption, challenge some adoption myths and share their experiences of working with The Cradle.
