About Cradle Of Life Adoption Agency

In 1987, Mel and Cathy Shelander established Cradle of Life Adoption Agency because they were adoptive parents themselves and wanted to form a truly honest and trustworthy adoption agency for children, Texas birth parents and adoptive parents across the United States.

Mel and Cathy dedicate their lives and careers to Texas families, owning and operating Cradle of Life Adoption Agency as well as Cradle of Life, Adoption Agency, a family law firm. They always put a child's well-being first, and work with families across the region to find the best path forward in their next chapter.

We continue to reach out to as many struggling birth families as possible and provide them with whatever means necessary to fulfill their goals and dreams, connecting them with adoptive parents who are looking to make their families whole.
