I have had the opportunity to serve Gladney for portions of the last three decades. I began as a Financial Consultant, helping to organize the Gladney Fund in the early 1990s. I fell in love with the organization and its mission to build “Bright Futures Through Adoption.” As a young wife and mother myself, I was immersed in the culture of families and children, the broader “Gladney Family.” It has been my privilege to have been a part of this family and to see the positive impact an adoption agency in Fort Worth, Texas, has had on birth mothers, children, adoptive families, our country, and the world.
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.
