Cradle Adoption Families On Meeting Your Child

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman March 02, 2015

Cradle Adoption created this important video about “first meetings.”

What is it like meeting your adopted child for the first time? What kind of emotions do you experience? How does your heart –so vulnerable and so open –feel during that first encounter?

Cradle Adoption brilliantly created this video that shares several adoptive parents’ experiences during their first meetings. The overwhelming feeling of love is palpable, as it is consistently portrayed by each of these sets of parents. No one ever forgets their first meeting — they always leave a great memory on the heart and mind.
