Origin of the word

The Origins of the Word CRIBMATES

By Cathi Swett


Darryl McDaniel and I were adopted from the same adoption agency.  I said something to him about sharing a crib back in the day.

“We’re Cribmates”  


And it stuck.  That’s how we got our name.

The prospective parents wanted a kid, any kid. We could have been sent anywhere.

Some of us #cribmates were raised by soulless materialistic people with no faith nor values. I dodged that bullet.
