Building Families Through Adoption Since 1990

Cradle of Hope Adoption Center is a non-profit, Hague-accredited adoption agency with offices in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia, founded by adoptive parents. Over the years, we have helped thousands of children join loving adoptive families. Our domestic and international adoption programs provide caring support and guidance to women considering adoption and prospective adoptive parents, both during the adoption process and well beyond.

Pregnancy Help for Birth Mothers

Cradle of Hope is ready to assist with medical care, insurance coverage, living expenses, and finding a wonderful family for your child. We are here to help before, during and after your adoption.

Domestic & International Adoption

If you are ready to open your heart and your home to a child, we can help. Our domestic and international adoption programs can find your future son or daughter, usually in less than a year.

Why Choose
Cradle of Hope?

Cradle of Hope’s mission is to provide adoption services to children in the U.S and overseas who are in need of permanent, loving families.  We believe that every child has the right to grow up in a loving family whose unconditional love will help him to reach his full potential. We are committed to providing women facing unplanned pregnancies and our adoptive families with comprehensive counseling, preparation, and support throughout the adoption process and beyond.

Our staff works with young women considering adoption to help them understand their adoption options and make the best possible choices for themselves and for their babies. We assist with adoptions in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia and provide support throughout the adoption process and afterwards.

Since our staff has extensive personal and professional experience with adoption, we know the joy that adoption brings to a family. We try to ensure that building families through domestic and international adoption is a positive experience for the child and adoptive family.
