2020 is a year full of defining moments that will be reflected on for years to come . . . challenges faced, losses grieved, lessons learned, flexibility shown, creativity generated, and new connections celebrated. As Gladney begins our new fiscal year, we feel hopeful and are balancing that optimism with realistic, strategic decisions and plans. Gladney is not immune to the challenges many individuals, families, and organizations are currently facing. Just as family will always be essential to our mission of Creating Bright Futures Through Adoption, you will always be essential to Gladney—we need you.
Thank you for thinking of and supporting Gladney. Our caseworkers remain on the frontlines—continuing to serve expectant mothers who are making an adoption plan, care for teenage girls in foster care in the Gladney Home, advocate to find adoptive families for waiting children in state foster care and international orphanages, be with adoptive families when their new children are placed with them, and educate and equip families to thrive. Our mission and services continue.
Gladney promises to be Family for Life. The adoption journey is unique and personal to each birth parent, child, adoptive parent, and adult adoptee. Our clients all have different challenges, strengths, needs, and experiences. What connects all of us is that we navigate the journey together.
Thank you for your investment and involvement in our clients’ lives. Your support sustains Gladney, allowing us to be present and meet their individualized needs in a personal way—step by step, through changing seasons of life … during their adoption process and for years to come. We feel grateful and renewed when we see people wanting to help, and our shared belief that Every Child Deserves a Loving and Caring Family keeps us moving forward.
