Gladney Intern Brandi's First Week

Posted by Gladney Intern on 10/4/18 7:37 AM

This internship has been so much more than I ever expected! I first heard about Gladney after I started the MSW program at the University of Texas at Arlington. When the opportunity presented itself to apply for an internship here I jumped at it, but I was not holding my breath on being one of the few lucky ones to be selected. Then, the much-anticipated e-mail came in…” you have been accepted as an intern at the Gladney Center for Adoption”. Intern at Gladney?! Me?! I felt like my eyes were deceiving me! I remember calling my mom to tell her and then quickly assuring both of us that it was too good to be true. I am so glad that statement was wrong!

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.

What We're Reading: Texas Foster Children

Posted by Frank Garrott on 4/26/17 10:50 AM

As Gladney continues to focus on the Texas foster children, I believe others might benefit from reading the article by Brandon Logan, J.D., CWLS, entitled “The Community-Based Solution for Texas Foster Children”.  The article provides helpful information to anyone trying to better understand it.

If you are interested in learning more about how to adopt a child in Texas Foster care, please check out Gladney's New Beginnings Program.
