When Gladney started planning our trip to Orlando to volunteer at the 2022 Special Olympics, we didn't imagine we would have 28 people coming along, as well as others volunteering time to make this a special experience! Our VolunTEAM includes Gladney Families, Staff, Friends, and prior Gladney Superkids volunteers!
Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are coming up soon.

Allison has global developmental delays and needs a family who can celebrate her and help her reach her full potential.
We at Gladney along with the rest of the world have been following along with the devastating news about the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We know this may bring up tough questions and feelings, particularly for our Russian and Ukrainian adoptees. Below are some resources that your family may find helpful. The first are some guidelines for how to support and discuss these events with your child, and the second are resources for providing support to Ukraine if your family wants to take some action and doesn’t know where to start.
Please join us as we introduce Jemma! Jemma was born in 2011 and is almost 11 years old.
