Today the Gladney Team had the privilege to watch the beautiful adoption story of Frank and Stacy. We asked our Gladney Family to share their photos from the moment they first met their child #GladneyInstaLove.
Watch Hoda Kotb tell them they are matched with a baby girl. (Warning: tissues are needed.)
Hi! My name is Shelly Kalina and I am currently interning in the Domestic Infant Adoption Program working with Adoptive Parents under the awesome supervision of Courtney Kearney. So far, I love it here at Gladney! There is such a wonderful work atmosphere that is a great blend of challenges, fun, efficiency, and teamwork that feels like family.
Whether it's selling t-shirts, having garage sales, or doing crowdfunding, there are many ways and opportunities to raise money for an upcoming adoption (domestic or international). Mike and Astra tried all of these ideas and more!

Hi everyone! I’m Laura, and I am an intern in the Birth Parent Services department. One of my main roles at Gladney is to research ways to improve birth parent experiences through more readable documents and evaluation surveys. I get excited knowing the work I am doing is reducing barriers birth parents face as they create adoption plans. However, my sweetest times at Gladney have not been behind a computer screen, but have been in hospital rooms and out in the community loving on sweet birth families. Leading up to my internship, I prayed that I would get to hold a precious baby and on my first day here, I was blessed with the opportunity to carry and love on an adorable baby boy. It is amazing how a baby so tiny can hold such a big place in your heart.

Hi, my name is Marissa Hernandez. I am a senior at the University of North Texas and I am gradating with a Bachelor in social work this spring of 2018! Like most people, I did not quite understand what adoption really was before Gladney. All I knew was that I wanted to help those in need to have a forever home. Therefore, my professor at North Texas linked me to Gladney and now I could not imagine doing my internship anywhere else.
Gladney is partnering with Kidsave this summer to bring a group of Colombian orphans to the Dallas/Fort Worth area in July to live with host families. The host families, along with Kidsave, will help them find adoptive families.
