Volunteer Transitional Care Families are often a crucial part of the adoption experience through The Gladney Center. This is especially true when the baby being placed for adoption enters the world facing medical challenges. In the hospital or at home, Transitional Care Parents provide a loving daily touch to babies in need of a family to help nourish and prepare that baby for a heathier future.
The Gladney Center’s Transitional Care Services benefits the triad of clients involved in the adoption process. Birth parents do feel more comfortable once they witness the love and attention given to their baby by these supportive volunteers. Adoptive parents benefit from the knowledge and nurturing provided through the transitional care updates, and of course the baby benefits by receiving all the attention and extra love provided before placement day.
