Golden Cradle Adoption Services – Our History

Golden Cradle Adoption Services was founded in 1980 by Arty Elgart, a Philadelphia business man. From its inception, Golden Cradle inspired innovation in the field of adoption. Golden Cradle was one of the first agencies to advertise adoption as a viable, healthy option for families using billboards, and print advertisements. The agency also offered semi-open and open adoptions in a time when closed adoptions were the norm.

Our clients can be assured that Golden Cradle has a proven history of exceptional service and will continue to serve those in the adoption triad (birth families, adoptive parents and adoptees) with skill and compassion.
