Adoption tends to be a popular topic on reality shows and made for TV movies.Plot lines abound involving unplanned pregnancies,someone growing up who may not know her biological mom, or parents raising a child that wasn't born to them. Usually, these shows leave the viewer with more questions than answers.

Cradle volunteer speaking at a classroomThat's why The Cradle created Volunteers for Adoption Education to answer those questions with facts not fiction. Our group of speakers are all personally connected to adoption – birth parents, adoptive parents and adults who were adopted as children. They speak about adoption from personal experience providing accurate, up-to-date information on such topics as: Open Adoption, Intercountry Adoption, the Mutual Consent Registry, and the legal rights of birth parents in Illinois.

These adoption presentations are a great addition to a high school Health, Child Development, Life Skills or Marriage and Family class, to name a few. We will customize the length of the presentation to fit your schedule and... they are FREE of charge!
