It's been a journey already that you've taken towards becoming parents. You've had a lot of tough conversations and wrestled with your plans. Now you're ready to learn more about adoption and you're faced with several options.
We are introducing Odin today. He is a cute little 4 year old boy who was born prematurely.
We are ready to start introducing some of the new children we met on our recent trip to Taiwan. And who better to start with than darling little Keith?
Oklahoma passed legislation which could improve outcomes for more children. H.B.2858 makes a significant addition to what courts must do at the initial hearing when a child is removed from the parent(s) by the state for drug exposure or allegations of abuse or neglect. Beginning November 1, 2018, courts will be required to tell a parent at the initial hearing that he/she has the right to make a voluntary adoption placement through a licensed child-placing agency.
We met Liam several times in our trips to the orphanage where he lives. He is still waiting.
Oliver is a darling little 20 month old baby boy who is waiting for a family.
We all made it home from Taiwan (with the exception of Gongzhan Wu, who is traveling in China for the next few weeks) safe and sound. We are getting over jet lag and starting to process the huge amount of information we brought home with us.
As National Volunteer Appreciation month comes to a close, we want to acknowledge three Gladney Board Members who rotated off of the Board this month.
Day in the Life of a Gladney Intern
Hello there, I’m Taylor Caressimo and I’m currently interning with Gladney in the New Beginnings adoption department, where we connect loving families with children who are in foster care to find them their forever homes.
We are back in our hotel rooms early today. We saw children at Cathwel this morning then they provided a wonderful lunch for us and we spent some time talking about our common goal of finding families for more children with the director and staff there.
