Purchase a Brick

Create a Lasting Tribute With A Commemorative Brick

The Cradle offers the opportunity to create a lasting tribute to a loved one or to commemorate a special occasion by purchasing an engraved brick to be included in The Cradle’s Commemorative Brick Walkway. More than 2,200 bricks have been purchased since the program was launched in 2000, and the engraved bricks now line the walkway and garden of our building in Evanston. Many families have purchased bricks to honor their child’s Adoption Day, or to recognize a special birthday or other occasion.

⬤  Standard brick measures 4" x 8” and can include three lines of text, 13 characters per line (including spaces).
