More Than Just A Matching Service
Cradled in Grace provides comprehensive education, guidance, and support throughout the entire adoption process.
A healthy adoption triad relationship can be a beautiful thing, but it is also complicated and multi-layered, born out of brokenness.
Our desire is to fully prepare adoptive families to walk alongside an expectant mom, who is often facing difficult circumstances, as she considers an adoption plan for her child. Should she choose adoption, that family will continue to receive support, education, and guidance as they navigate this difficult process with her.
Through our community of partners and our personalized consulting services, we empower families to understand the complexities involved in both adopting and raising the child while maintaining a birth family relationship.
We are so thankful God allowed this team to guide us through our adoption process!
“The personal guidance and support provided by Cradled in Grace helped us to realistically manage our expectations throughout the adoption process.
Their faith based approach and the patience they exhibited helped us through each step of our adoption. As an African American family seeking to adopt, we felt very comfortable discussing cultural issues that are often obstacles in adoption. We are so thankful God allowed this team to guide us through our adoption process!”
