S.J.'s story

I resided at the Cradle of Hope in 2004 with my son. I was a teenage mother with a young sick child and still in high school. (My son was four months premature.) At the Cradle I finished my high school education...

Sara's story

I came across Cradle of Hope through a google search made out of desperation. There was some slight hesitation in calling to set up an interview. My situation brought me embarrassment. Was I ready to live with strangers and abide by the rules?

T.M.'s story

First-time mothers can have very many differences. Age, background, life experiences, single, married, high school dropouts or college graduates. But all have one thing in common: the unconditional love they have for their child.
