The 2018 TCS New York City Marathon is coming up on November 4th. Between now & then, we'll be introducing you to Gladney's charity runners.
The process of adopting can be stressful. However, paying for adoption shouldn’t be. One way to raise money is to organize a garage sale. This could be a great way to get rid of unwanted things, bring the community together, and raise money to help with the adoption process.

Recently, Gladney had the pleasure of working with the Children’s Medical Center Dallas. Children’s helped care for a Gladney baby for six months. During these six months, the staff and volunteers at Children’s went above and beyond while we waited for the okay to send this precious baby home with her forever family.

A Day in the Life of a Gladney Intern
My connection with Gladney began two years ago when one of my classes required that I do volunteer work for a non-profit organization. While volunteering I learned they needed a driver for the expectant moms living in the dorm so I decided to apply. Over the last two years I developed an appreciation for the culture and commitment Gladney has to help those in need. I wanted to understand other ways that Gladney positively impacts lives and so I decided to do my Internship with them.
While Gladney has offices throughout the US, Domestic Infant Orientation occurs at the Fort Worth Campus. Families from all over the U.S. attend this invitation-only event to learn more about Gladney and about the Domestic Infant Adoption Program.

Every child deserves a loving, caring family, including children in other countries who have been orphaned. The adoption community-waiting families, adoptive families, adopted adults, licensed agencies, faith communities, child advocates, and support organizations-believes that connecting children with families provides the best opportunity for many of these children to live healthy, cared-for, productive lives. There are millions of children waiting, many dying, and most aging out of orphanages, with little hope for the future. And there are many thousands of families in the U.S. waiting to offer themselves to a child needing a family.
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.
