    CRADLE is pro-child, pro-mom, and pro-dad and tries to connect its clients with a local church.

    In 1996, Pastor John Gowdy of Temple Baptist Church received a visit in his study that would change the Ohio community of Portsmouth forever.  Maura Pilet, a midwife for a local gynecologist and the wife of one of his pastors on staff at the time, brought him a copy of the area’s phone book.

    Maura only got to work with the center for a couple years as she passed away quite unexpectedly at the age of 37 in 1998.  But her dream lives on through CRADLE.

    She showed him the Yellow Pages.  They began with a list of eight different places offering Abortion Services from as far away as Huntington, WV, and Cincinnati.  Where were the listings for Abortion Alternatives?  She was convicted about the area’s need to share other options for women who were considering an abortion.  Who would tell them about the aftermath?  How would they find out about the physical and mental repercussions?  Who would show them they could still have hope?
