Posted by Ellen Wilson, CPA on 7/17/18 3:30 PM

As Gladney families begin their adoption journey, I have the privilege of helping them navigate the financial side of their decision.  Families that elect to pursue a Domestic Infant Adoption frequently have questions regarding financial resources that are available to them along the way.  Questions regarding the Adoption Tax Credit, Employer Reimbursement Plans, grants, loans and fundraising websites are all topics that should be understood and researched early in the adoption process.

Adoption Stories by Gladney: Gladney Adoptee Interns at Gladney

Posted by Katie on 7/10/18 10:30 AM

I love to say that I’m from Fort Worth, Texas, even though I only lived here for two weeks after I was born. Another thing I love to tell people is that I was found in a newspaper. This one always throws people off and then I have to explain that my parents placed an ad in various newspapers stating that they were looking to adopt, and that I wasn’t actually found wrapped up in the newspaper. After speaking, briefly, with different birth mothers and birth fathers, my dad spoke with my birth mother who was willing to travel to Texas to finish out her pregnancy and place her baby (me) for adoption. At this point neither my birth parents nor adoptive parents knew if they would be matched with one another or with other families, BUT… they ended up being matched and now I have one giant family.
